Fun afternoon at the park!

I often take Dominic to the park after school. We ended up going to the park yesterday around 5:30. It's still really warm and sticky here in Houston, even though the first day of fall was last week. We ended up staying for awhile, but really dark clouds started rolling in and I thought it was going to rain so we left and went home. Turned out to be a false alarm. Never rained.
We were being silly and I was taking photo's of us laying down.

Bee sting: No bueno!!!

Yesterday, I took Dominic to the park to play. We played for a little while and then I decided it was time to leave because I needed to get home to get ready to go to Yoga class with my neighbor. Dominic, being like any other two year old toddler, did not want to leave. I ended up picking him up and carring him to the car.

When we arrived to our car, I felt something stick my upper right thigh. I thought Dominic could have stepped in gum and a bit of the gum had gotten stuck to my leg or something. I set him down in his car seat and checked the bottoms of his shoes for gum, which there was none. I did however, see a red spot on my thigh. I walked around to my side of the car, got in and sat down. I tried to examine the spot a little more closely, but still didn't see any type of stinger in there. I got home and started looking up “allergic reactions to bee stings,” online. I am pretty allergic to bee stings however, it's been such a long time since the last time I was stung by anything. I was actually a little scared because I wasn't sure what to do or what was going to happen, if anything. I put a paste of crushed aspirin and baking soda on the wound and went ahead to my Yoga class.

I got home from Yoga around 7.30 and I was not feeling so well. At the end of the Yoga class, we did some poses to stimulate our immune system. Maybe this caused a reaction with the bee venom of something. I felt really hot, really weak and I had aches all over my body. I felt like I was coming down with the flu. Justin brought me home some soup and I continued to feel worse as the evening progressed. I checked my temperature and I had a low grade fever of 100.5. I immediatey took some Ibuprofen and ran a luke warm bath. I went to bed after that. I felt so awful, I could barely move.

Here's a gross pic of my little bee sting:

I just thought I would share my bee sting episode. It was not pleasant. I'm feeling a bit better this morning, but still not 100%. Are any of you allergic to bees?
