Spring Break-2013 Hutchinson,KS

Since the weather had taken a turn for the worst and was going to be super cold we decided instead of hanging out inside all week we would take a trip down to see Grandpa Kently in Hutchinson. Kids were SUPER excited about going! We took off in the afternoon of Wednesday when Blake got home from work. Got to Grandpa's house safely. Went out to dinner and to the hotel to get some shut eye. Thursday met up with Grandpa and went out for breakfast. Headed to the Cosmosphere for the day. We have not been there since Bailey was a new born and Brooks was 3 1/2. It was great time! Kids really really enjoyed themselves. The kids got to make icecream made from milk,sugar,half & half and liquid oxygen. Really neat! Of course we got to eat some Space Icecream as well. We took in a Lab show about Dr. Goddard. Got to blow some things up and see how liguid oxygen is so cold it boils, yep boils! Then we took in a movie about Kenya. Bailey made it about 5 minutes and then fell sound asleep. Brooks LOVED it and couldn't stop talking about it. We also went to the observatory. This time i was the one that only lasted about 5 minutes. Not my thing at all. But the kids and Blake really enjoyed. I think Grandpa Kently liked it too! Brooks started saying he didn't feel so good. We left went back to G-Pa's house and hung out for a bit before meeting Kelly and Jarod Madden out for dinner with their kids at Carlo's O' Kelly's. Again Brooks said he didn't feel so hot and didn't even touch his food. But had a great time with his second cousins. It was really great to see and catch up with them. Planned a trip to their house for a weekend this summer! Should be a good time! Got back to hotel and Brooks got in bed right away and said he really didn't feel well and fell asleep. It took a while for Bailey to fall asleep because of her 15 minute nap in the theatre. Finally she fell asleep next to Brooks. Blake and I had all the lights off and both on our phones when wer heard the worst sound come from Brooks. Yep, there was a reason why he said he didn't feel so hot. It all came up all over the bed,floor,dresser,chair,Blake and bathroom. He even managed to get our bed.Ugh! Luckily he was facing away from Bailey and facing toward the floor. Got him cleaned up,the floor and bedding cleaned up. Threw the comforters in the laundry shoot down to the basement where they do laundry and Brooks fell back to sleep. Blake started asking where his phone was and i hadn't seen it. He said he had thrown it down on the bed when Brooks got sick. We both looked at each other and sighed! I laughed and told him i think it was in our comforter that i just threw down to the basement. He took my phone and the girl at the front desk down to the basement and called his phone and sure enough he heard it ringing, barried in the yucky, puked soaked comforter. Dug for it and found it. YUCK!!! But, thank god he found it! Bailey slept through the whole ordeal!!! LOL :) Brooks was super sweet, while standing in the tub washing up he said, " im sorry " i said, " for what honey? " He said, " im sorry that you guys have to clean this up " Poor baby! He was more concerned about us then himself! Right before he layed down in the bed he said, " I feel great !!!!! " Next morning came fast and on too our adventure at the Underground Salt Mine Museum.......
