Abbey and the Bike Wreck


On Monday night, Abbey decided to go for a bike ride. She rode from our driveway, to the next door neighbors driveway. According to her, her seat turned and she was thrown over the handle bars and onto her chin. OUCH! When she came into the house, I could tell by her cries that she was hurt, not just a bandaid and I am better hurt, but the real kind of hurt. Anyhow, her chin swelled up so fast it was about 4 times the size in less than 20 min. We ended up taking her to our good friends house (he's our pediatrician). He checked her out for about 20min or so, and thought she would be ok. After lots and lots of Ibuprofen, and what seems like millions of ice packs, here's the proof that she was in PAIN! She is not in as much pain now, and seems to be back to normal, including riding her bike, AFTER Dad tightened the seat, and tested it several times himself.

How sad! Hopefully, it won't scar. Now she has a great story, though!

Ooh, ouch! Those are never fun. Lindsey looked absolutely beautiful for her prom! I can't believe how much she looks like you Jennifer. Man, I bet you guys are beating the boys off left and right, she is a knock-out!

It's so hard to see your kids get hurt. I'm glad she didn't do any permanent damage. Lindsey looks beautiful. I remember your girls as babies. It was fun to see your mom at Claire's wedding and hear how everyone is doing. Does Julie have a blog? If not tell her hi for me. Have a great day
