New Year--New Injury...

We spent the weekend with my parents and my sister in Thatcher--which means more fun, more cousins, and Rhino rides! The kids always have a great time--and can't wait to ride with Uncle Todd, because he gives them an amazing ride. This time it backfired, and we spent the day in the ER on Saturday with poor Joshua. Todd was doing doughnuts (his favorite, and also the kids favorite!) and the Rhino tipped on its side. He wasn't going fast, and all of the kids were strapped in, thank goodness, but it tipped onto Josh's side, and his arm got caught underneath. After X-rays, we learned that there weren't any broken bones, (miracle...considering the Rhino weighs over 1,000 pounds, and Josh weighs like 40!), but he has a heck of a swollen arm and elbow. We stayed the night at my mom's and just had to watch his arm in case the swelling or pain got worse, but he is feeling better thank goodness! Todd got a few bumps and bruises (since he buckled up all the kids but didn't buckle up himself--hello???). Just a reminder to be careful on those 4 wheeling adventures--these things really can hurt people! We win the parents of the year award because just before this happened, Jack pulled the flat iron down off the counter and it fell on his foot giving him a heck of a burn. Can you say--LONG DAY!

We were wondering what happened to you guys! I'm glad Josh doesn't have any broken bones. His poor arm looks so painful. Yikes!
