Entertaining ourselves...

So, we've been spending a lot of time at the hospital these days with all of the kiddos.  Aaron and Jenna, Brody and Bowen were maybe going to go home on Friday, but Aaron asked the kids and they said they wanted to stay.  We are trying to entertain them as much as we can. 
 We like to go for walks.  It's nice that Blake isn't connected to an IV for a portion of the day, so it's easier to get out and about.  We like to go to the 8th floor and look at the helicopter.  It does have a Hawkeye on it, did you know that?!  The kids noticed right away.
 On the peds floor where we stay they have a lot of toys and stuff and Bowen found this three wheeler that he likes to ride in the halls.  Well, I had a good/bad idea that it might be fun to take it down this big ramp of a hallway.
 Yep, it was fun alright.  Kind of gave me a heart attack a few times.  But, I got a workout to, running alongside. ;)

 Jenna's legs might be just a bit long, but she didn't seem to care.

 And of course, Blake needed a turn too.  Blake-style though.  We got some good smiles.

Super fun.  And, one of those things that you can probably only do on the weekends because there aren't many people around.  If we did it during the week, they might kick us out.  Which, come to think of it, might not be such a bad thing...
We walk.  And walk some more.  And burn off some kiddo energy.  I would say, all things considered and under the circumstances, the kids do really, really well.
