Birmingham or Bust

It has been a long 6 months with trips to Birmingham for Ben's eye appointments. I think we have done 4 in 6 months or so. It is only 2 hours but with 2 kids it seems longer! So on Thursday we had to go down once again for a check up! Thankfully my dad was able to come along to help! And we had to do some fun things before the appointment. We met my friend Lisa for lunch at Rolly Poly! My favorite. Always so good to hang out with Lisa! Thanks for meeting us!! Then we went to the Lego store. Every little boy's dream afternoon. Time at the Lego store. Ben loved every minute of it looking at all the cool Legos. I think he could have stayed there for hours.
Then it was off to the eye doctor. His eyes weren't doing as well as they had hoped. He is not using his "bad" eye like they would like so we are back on the drops for 5 weeks and will go back down in 6 weeks. Oh boy another trip down there! We will have to think of something else fun to do then.

We had to stop for a treat on the way home and some McDonalds ice cream and cookies were calling our names!
