Sorry for your troubles. Sounds like a really rough patch. I'm a cancer survivor too (hodgkin's), and also had a transplant.

Splash pads sound fun! I wish we had one nearby. We have a water table and pool too. I hope my kids will remember all of the summer fun. It's crazy to think how quickly they grow up.

Garden produce starting coming in recently, so I will be buying way less of that at the store. DD is milk obsessed though, so I'm stuck using 3 gallons a week. I don't even have a full cup in a week....
