Great Week!

This has been such a good week for Trent!  Friday he began feeling much better so we decided to take advantage of it.  We took all the kids and drove to the City of Rocks in Idaho on Saturday.  It was so much fun!  We love a good road trip and we needed to pull our kids around us with nobody else and just enjoy each other. We got out and climbed all over the rocks and had a great time.  Trent was okay but admitted that it is difficult for him to keep his balance on all the uneven surfaces.  He watched from the burb for most of it.

Sunday night we lit a bunch of fireworks.  Trent bought a huge box that I thought was way too many fireworks.  When I mentioned that Trent said, "Holly, I missed the 4th of July this year and last, I missed the 24th last year too.  So this year I have to make up for it!"  Fine.  Good point.  Because of that we had a dandy little fireworks show that lasted quite awhile.  Trent was having a great time and kept giggling like a little boy.

Monday morning we took the kids over to Zion Park (right next to our house) and launched the model rockets Trent and Zach built for Zach's merit badge.  It was way cooler than I thought it would be and we had a great time.  All the kids took a turn pressing the launch button.

Last night we headed to Pack Meeting and Yates Lake in Honeyville.  It was such a nice park and Trent loved it.  He kept saying he felt like himself again.  It was so nice.

I guess if this is how this chemo cocktail is going to treat him, we can take it.  One horrible, awful, yucky week is alright if you know you get two good ones after that.  Of course, I am not the one who has to do it either.  We just have to take advantage of every good minute we get and not put things off until tomorrow.  That's probably a good way to live life all the time.  You just can't let life pass you by, even if you are healthy.
Feeling good and loving it!
