This past weekend Juliette, Grams & I headed to the Ft. Myers/Bonita Springs/Naples Florida area for a good friend's wedding at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa. Juliette caught the pink eye last week at school...and came down with a fever by the Friday afternoon before we left. We decided to continue with our plans to drive six hours to SW Florida. We packed up the car and arrived at the gorgeous Edison & Ford Winter Estates in Ft. Myers around 1 p.m. Juliette was still not feeling 100% but seemed o.k. The weather was not cooperating so we weren't able to see the homes (we went back Sunday afternoon so we did get to see the houses!). So we headed south to check into our hotel. Right after checking in, we found a really cute restaurant called Coconut Jack's. The food was good, but unfortunately, Juliette wasn't feeling good at all. After a not so great night of little sleep and some sort of odd rash that had appeared in the morning, we took Juliette to an urgent care. Turns out the kid had gotten some gnarly virus. She got a prescription for some antibiotics and we were sent on our way. I had wanted to take Juliette to a children's museum I had found online, Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples. Juliette wasn't really up to playing since she was still fighting off this nasty virus. It's a cool place though! She did manage to splash around in their HUGE water table enough to get herself soaking wet. The wedding was Sunday night and Grams was happy to babysit so that I could attend. Needless to say...after days of fever, a weird rash, eye drops for the pink eye, vomiting on her Mama (yeah, that was fun), and dealing with a sick and clingy kid, we made it home. The wedding was just beautiful!
