On the mend

The last few days have been kind of long and rough around here. Thursday night, both kids were up back and forth for a few hours and then Ian started getting sick, and was up for a few more hours. Friday we were pretty exhausted and the kids were not feeling great, so we decided to not drive on to Arizona. We signed up for another week at this campground. Partly so we didn't have to drive with sick kids, partly so we didn't have to pack and move when we're exhausted, and partly so we could keep enjoying the fresh oranges and donuts. :)

Yesterday we thought they were doing better, so we went back to the Kern County museum. We've been there a few times now. The kids museum part is kind of small and wimpy, but they have all these old buildings set up like a little town from 100 years ago, and you can tour some of the houses. It's actually pretty neat and gives you a good idea of what life was like in Bakersfield during the oil booms. There's also a big exhibit on the oil discoveries around here, and we only found the biggest part of the exhibit on our 4th visit. There's a little boat/drilling simulator thing that Ian was pretty scared of (it bangs and shakes pretty loudly), and when I tried to take him on it he flipped out and we used the emergency stop button. Turns out that if you finish it, the door on the other side of the room opens to a whole other part of the building with all kinds of neat things. After that we explored a bit and did find a bypass door so Ian could see the rest.

Still having internet woes, but here's one shot of Jeremy and Rinnah I was able to upload.

Just when we thought they were getting better, Rinnah was up getting sick several times last night, so only Jeremy and Ian got to go to church this morning. Makes me glad we decided to stay. I hope that by Friday, everybody's good to go and we can hit the road again. In the meantime, this is sure a nice place to stay.
