The Dangers of Scouting

Because of my new calling in the primary presidency, we got to attend the Cub Scout Pack Meeting last night. It was a barbecue at Lake Wilderness. The girls were excited to play on the playground. They had a great time on the slides and the swings. They had hot dogs and chicken, lots of salads, and of course lots of dessert. While I was inline getting some food for Ryan and Peyton, I heard Peyton crying. I looked over and saw Troy holding her and she was MAD. Then I was sitting at the picnic table feeding her and she had a little spot on her nose and blood smeared across her face. I asked Troy what happened and he said that she was either stung by a bee or had a thorn in her nose. She got over it very quickly and while I was running errands last night, Troy put the girls to bed. Peyton did not have a good night. She started crying at 12:30. I held her and rocked her for a while. I gave her Tylenol, but she continued to scream. I never turned the light on and after enough screaming, I went to get her a bottle. Well, this morning when I went in to get her, this is what I saw. I guess there's not really a question of whether it was a bee or not. My poor baby!!! (It actually doesn't look as bad in the pictures. It's REALLY swollen.)

Oh my gosh!!! That's it- YOU QUIT!!! Just kidding... poor Peyton. I was stung once when I was about 10 right on my eyebrow bone and my whole eye swelled up just the same. I couldn't see for days. Poor little thing. Maybe Benadryl???
