Rainforest and Rashes

The Gang

Anderson (L) and Jake (R)


Playing in some pretend spilled coke

Lunch at the Rainforest Cafe.

Today we met up with the Bennetts for a playdate. The babies spent some time playing in the mall's play area and then we did lunch at The Rainforest Cafe. This is only the second time that they have played at the mall and they absolutely love it. Generally I'm too germ-a-phobic to let them but I figure that strategy isn't working. Clearly. There happened to be another little boy around a year old wearing the same shirt as Jake. A lady asked Kevin if we had triplets. To which Kevin replied "no that's suicide". Not PC but honest nonetheless. After they were done playing and were disinfected by me we headed to lunch.

They were a little unsure about all the activity at the resteraunt. They definitely liked the fish in the giant aquarium and they liked the rain showers as well. The monkeys and elephants made them a little nervous but as long as Mommy and Daddy were nearby things were okay. Jake ate his lunch but Anderson was a little too distracted to eat very much. Towards the end of lunch I took Jake for a diaper change and lo and behold he had a rash all over his little body. I couldn't believe it, I just kept repeating "not again" over and over in my head. UNBELIEVEABLE! So we quickly packed up our things, brought the boys home and took a closer look at little baby Jake. It was obvious he had a rash (check) so off to urgent care he went. Turns out it is a reaction to the amoxicillin he has been taking for his ear infection. So he has been prescribed a new medication and I need to call his peditrician first thing in the morning.
