We got tickets for a riverboat ride through the Ronald McDonald House.  It started to rain at the end, but it was really neat to see the buildings from the view of the river.  Please disregard grumpy 5-year-old I was trying to cut out of the picture.  She didn't want to smile, but she wouldn't move. 

Notice Shelby lovin' up life!

The ferris wheel at Navy Pier.

Getting ready to go on the ferris wheel.  Avery was just not into pictures that day!   Trust me, she was very excited to go on the ferris wheel.

And then she smiled on the merry-go-round!  Blurry, but cute.

Avery posing for me while looking out the window of our room at the Ronald McDonald House.

Shelby held Benny most of the day Friday knowing she wouldn't see him until Monday.  She SO misses her puppy!

Waiting nervously with Grammie for her PICC procedure to begin.

Sleeping off the sedation.

PICC #5 (I think)

Awake from the sedation and hungry.  She doesn't remember this, though. 

In her regular room and she remembered that Papa gave her a Kit Kat for after.  Thanks Papa!

Avery LOVIN' having lunch at the picnic table under our new playset.

SO excited to find this great deal on Craigslist!!!  The guy who sold it to us disassembled it and used his company truck to move it.  Our friend, Kevin, had 3 of his ball players come and help, too.  Within an hour, it was all set up :-D  Swinging will be GREAT therapy for Shelby and Avery now has her "tree house."  Very, VERY blessed to encounter such kind people!

Sisters working on a puzzle together when they visited yesterday.
Discharge should be after tomorrow morning's infusion.  We are bored. My back has had it sleeping in hospitals.  Shelby is hanging in there.  Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
