Annabelle lost her first tooth...(sniff, sniff, sob)

I left her at her Gigi's with very clear instructions to NOT lose that wiggly tooth without me.  I guess she didn't hear me.  I feel sad that this is our last first tooth loss.

This is the picture Gigi sent me.

Florida trip (part 2)

This year we rented bikes and rode through Seaside.  This was post head injury so Kyle is the only one with a helmet.  After the ride, we got sno-cones of course.  We also celebrated Annabelle's birthday while in Florida by going to Rum Runners and enjoying some live music and requesting lots of songs for Annabelle including Sweet Child of Mine (like we did for Barrett's birthday a few years back).  Before we sat down to eat, Cody and Kyle did the zipline there and Annabelle rode the carousel.  Gigi, Barrett and I enjoyed watching them.

staples...this post is not for the squeamish

While we were in Florida, Kyle was doing backflips into the pool and cut his head very badly on the edge of the pool. We didn't know it had happened until we looked up and saw him covered in blood.  He was very brave and didn't even cry.  I rushed him to the urgent care clinic and we were both dripping wet the whole time.  The doctor decided that STAPLES was the way to go on his scalp.  My stomach flops every time I say that.  Seriously, who decided that staples should be used to fix body parts?  Staples are for paper and things that can't feel!  I mean, okay, MAYBE if you're on a deserted island sitting under a palm tree and a coconut falls on your head leaving a large open wound just as a long lost Office Depot shipment washed ashore containing only a stapler and staples...maybe.  Or if you're in a Mary Shelley novel.

I could not watch as the doctor held the STAPLER to my child's HEAD! Kyle was so brave, even though he looked like a patient in a World War II infirmary. I would have needed full sedation if someone was going to staple my head!

Warning graphic pics ahead!

Florida trip (part 1)

We have a big summer planned.  Our first trip of the summer was to Florida.  We thought about skipping it because we have other trips planned but we couldn't stand it...we had to go.

"I Lived" by One Republic

Hope when you take that jump, you don't fear the fall

Hope when the water rises, you built a wall

Hope when the crowd screams out, they're screaming your name

Hope if everybody runs, you choose to stay

Hope that you fall in love, and it hurts so bad

The only way you can know is give it all you have

And I hope that you don't suffer but take the pain

Hope when the moment comes, you'll say

I, I did it all

I, I did it all

I owned every second that this world could give

I saw so many places, the things that I did

With every broken bone, I swear I lived
Hope that you spend your days, but they all add up

And when that sun goes down, hope you raise your cup

Oh, I wish that I could witness all your joy and all your pain

But until my moment comes, I'll say

I, I did it all

I, I did it all

I owned every second that this world could give

I saw so many places, the things that I did

With every broken bone, I swear I lived
Oh, oh, oh, oh
With every broken bone, I swear I lived

With every broken bone, I swear I

I, I did it all

I, I did it all

I owned every second that this world could give

I saw so many places, the things that I did

With every broken bone, I swear I lived

I chose this song here because it's a great song that speaks to experiencing life and different places and living life to the fullest...and because while experiencing back flips into the pool in Florida, Kyle put a gash in his head that led to 6 staples.
