Another Crazy 4th.

Well for the 2nd year in a row, I was unable to watch Fireworks on the 4th. This is turning into a trend for us...the day of the 4th is great and we have a ton of fun but by the time it begins to get dark, the trouble starts! This year it was due to my daughter's hurt leg. We had a great day down in Rock Rapids, Iowa with family at a park down there. Then at about 5pm, Zoe and Brad went down a slide and her foot got caught under him. She cried for a little bit, but then fell asleep, so we drove home, she slept for another 2 hours or so and when she woke up, we went to put her down to walk around and what do ya know? She can't stand up!

We had to guess at which foot it was because neither Gage nor I saw exactly what happend on the slide. She was acting as if her right foot hurt so they did x-rays of her right foot. Why they didn't want to do both (seeing as we didn't know for sure which one it was!) is beyond me.... they couldn't find anything but they put a splint on her anyway to be safe. She had the splint on yesterday until it fell off. Today we went to the Bone Clinic and we saw her holding up her *left* leg whenever we tried to get her to stand. They did X-rays on her left leg and just as Gage thought all along, it was her left side, but it wasn't her foot - it was her leg. She has a small fracture on the lower part of her leg. Thankfully she does not need to wear a cast or a splint, we just need to keep her up off her feet as much as possible and in a week or two she should be walking again.

For our family, this time of year is full of two things: celebrations and a slightly overwhelming sense of cabin fever. Both Gage and I cel...
