No longer will it be called a VACATION!!! (Pic)

We have now gone on our "first" family vacation. Last Wednesday we packed up the van and headed off...we went to Door County Wisconsin. If you have never been to Door County it is a little piece of America that EVERYONE should visit. We went up there for a full week, Wednesday to Wednesday, but it seemed WAY shorter. We had an eventful first three days...2 Emergency Room visits. Thankfully neither were for the girls...one was for the wife and one was for me. Yippee. We learned our family vacations can only get better from here. The wife went to the ER the first night there...she had been battling a sinus infection for a little while and while taking the antibiotic it had irritated her esophagus to the point where she couldn't eat or drink without severe pain. She wasn't able to eat or drink for about 2-3 days and decided it wasn't getting better on its own so she needed something to help. She went to the ER the first night we were in Door County and was prescribed some vicodin to get through the pain. The doctor told her she had esophagitis and that it just needed time to heal. After a few doses of the meds she was doing MUCH better, really high, but better. And now for me...I went to the ER on Friday night. I had a rash that was spreading and getting worse and worse as the days went on. The doctor believes it to be a skin irritation from my laundry detergent. It was VERY humid and hot the first couple of days while up there so I was sweating a lot. So he prescribed me with a 5 day dose of steroids. 24 hours after the first dose I finally had my first burst of relief for the first time in about 4 days. Once we were finally drugged up we were both ready to start our vacation. Hopefully this isn't a sign of whats to come when we go on vacation...oh well here are a few pics from our time up in Door County.
