July 11: The fever came back!  Naturally, it showed up on a Saturday evening so the Urgent Care it was.  Doesn’t he look super sick here?  Can you tell his ear infection has started to move to his lungs and we’re moving on to the hardcore drugs?  What a goof.july12

July 12: We picked up our new puppy after a long 8 hour drive to Idaho!  We are so excited to have her 🙂july13
