just checking in from vacation and what a vacation it has been. a memorable one for sure.

the first full day we were here there was a pretty bad ATV accident. owen and greg flipped on the four wheeler down a thirty, or more, foot hill full of big rocks. i think greg saved owen from anything major. they life-flighted greg to Roanoke Hospital b/c he couldn't breathe. He has 3-5 broken ribs and a collapsed lung. He is bruised all over. Owen's face is swollen and bruised. He has 3 stitches on his lip and some derma glue on his upper lip. They he was at 2 hospitals to make sure a spot on his CT scan was not anything major. Some vertabrate didn't look good so they double checked it. His face & upper body were so swollen & bruised he couldn't do anything.

He is fine now, though. LOL! he was jumping off the dock the next day and we were on the boat a few days later. KIDS!

I just feel so bad. I wasn't here when it happened but brian saw the entire thing. We went outside the next day and brian showed me where they fell and my heart sank. I took a pic of it b/c you wouldn't believe me if i told you.

So, all of owen's 5th bday pics will be a memory of this event. But a good one now that we know they are okay!

thanks for letting me write it down, feels good to get if off my chest. Time to move on.

AND some good news. Don't forget the Ali Edwards chat at Serendipity Scrapbooks on AUGUST 19!!!!!
