Scott and Bridget met in 1993 and were married in 2001. In September of 2003 we welcomed our first miracle, James. 16 months later we brought home our second miracle, Annie. And in October of 2006 our family was complete with miracle #3, Gracie. Rett syndrome entered our lives when Annie was diagnosed on May 19, 2006. This is the life of the MacDonald family as we juggle 3 small children and battle Rett Syndrome until Gods perfect time when we are cured.

R and R

February was, well, a rough month for us over here in the MacDonald household so my wonderful husband told us to pack up because we needed a little time away for some fun and a little Rest and Relaxation! All 3 kids loved Kalahari when we went last summer so we knew that we wanted to do a water park but we didn't want to go to far and we didn't want to spend a fortune so we decided to head to Zehnders Splash Village in Frankenmouth on Sunday (the kids don't have school Tues. and playing "hooky" in preschool and kindergarten is sometimes a good thing!). The kids had a blast, we got there early and were able to get checked in right away and head to the indoor waterpark.
Then off to the famous Frankenmouth Chicken dinner, a little arcade time and then resting with a movie. Monday morning we woke up, had breakfast and hit the waterpark again then walked around the cute downtown area because it was soooo beautiful today! Needless to say we were all exhausted by this afternoon.
The kids all fell asleep on the quick trip home and we were back for James' karate this evening. A short trip but nice and a reminder to us that with all we have going on we need to take some time out to just have fun together.

Annie seems to be relieved that we are back home. She had a lot of fun in the waterpark (man I wish I had a "camera guy" that could snap pictures of the kiddo's when my hands are full - we could've had some great shots!) but everything else she was not so thrilled about. Lots of crying and very little that we could do to calm her.
It's frustrating that she couldn't relax and enjoy while we were away but hopefully now that she's back in her element she'll have a great rest of the week!
