Grandkids Day

Today was "Grandkid's Day" in Grandmom Adelaide's neighborhood. Since Ben had his soccer game, Spencer stayed with Ben and I brought the rest of the boys to the festivites at Grandmom's. It was a nice set up. Although the weather was cool, some people were swimming in the pool. They had a face painter and balloons and some food. The boys had a good time. Jack and Drew got their faces painted and Charlie enjoyed running all over the place with his brothers. Ben's soccer game ended early enough that he was also able to get a balloon animal with his brothers.

We did have, what thankfully turned out to be, a minor problem. When we were eating lunch, Charlie was eating a hot dog. All of the sudden, he started SCREAMING! I pulled the bite of hot dog out of his mouth and a bee came out with it. He was screaming hysterically. I looked in his mouth and saw the stinger still on his tongue. It was definitely one of those moments that I did not want to be the one "in charge". Luckily, it really turned out as good as it could have. I was able to get a hold of a tweezers and pulled out the stinger. He ended up having, absolutely, no reaction to the sting. We kept a close eye on him for quite a while, but his tongue was fine. Just another day in the life of having 4 boys.

Oh my goodness! I would have totally freaked out!! Glad you were able to find the stinger and he didn't have a reaction!
