The day after he had his cast removed, Jaden came home sick from school. Turned out to be scarlet fever! :-( We were trapped inside for 6 days!! As soon as he got on antibiotics, the rash and fever all disappeared, but the doctor wanted us to stay inside until he was rash free for 48 hrs! Good thing my kids are both home bodies. They really handled it all in stride ... I was the one going stir crazy!! But we all survived. Everyone is back at school and regular activities.
This past Saturday, Jaden's school hosted a "Just Tri It" Triathlon for kids of all ages. It was ridiculously well organized and a TON of fun!!! Jaden swam one time across the pool (Jaden was the only one to do backstroke), rode his bike 500m, and ran for 500m. It was super cute. Nothing was timed and everyone got a certificate. He did a great job!

After the race, we celebrated with burgers and fries at Johnny Rockets with Jaden's friend Ruhaan. (Yes Nicholas wore his Power Ranger costume all day.)

Later that evening, we decided to check out a new restaurant (new to us anyway). It was called Wagamama ... delicious Japanese food at the base of ZigZag Towers. The courtyard was really very pretty ... too bad it was FREEZING that night (I think the 60s).
