Happy 37th Birthday!

To an amazing father, husband, brother, son, and friend. I know I am leaving you this year for the DR and I thank you so much for your selflessness in allowing me to go! Thank you for working so hard for your family and for the time you make to spend with us even though school has you insanely busy. We love you!

Outside Fun Again

Fun and pain...
The other day I took the boys to the park which is about 5 blocks from our house so very convenient. Quinn enjoys playing on the playground while Isaiah goes to the skatepark that is right beside it. He is really trying to be some kind of "extreme" sports dude and this time he took his Razor and even wore his kneepads in preparation.

So while I snapped cute pics of Q playing, Isaiah was practicing his skills. Here is a long story made short...
He successfully conquered the large ramp on his Razor.
Razor snapped at the bottom, Izzy fell back on tailbone and caught himself with his elbow.
Holding back tears so he didn't look wimpy, he sat on the bench waiting for me to come over.
I found him very pale, limping in pain and sick to his stomach.
Started walking home and had to call E (calmly) because I thought maybe he was going to faint (and I still had Q and stroller).
Laid on couch nursing a very swollen elbow/forearm and feeling sick most of the evening.
Couldn't put pressure on arm for next 2 days so advised to have xrays done because of the nearness to his elbow.
Xrays fine. Whew.

This story told, here are some cute pics from that day until it went bad and some from this morning when the boys were playing outside together. Aren't they cute?

Goodbyes and Bonfires

Yesterday was a crazy day for us. We had a goodbye dinner with a good friend, Angie. She worked with us at Oaklawn and recently accepted a job at another agency. :( E has been friends with her for a long time and when I started my job, I found myself in an office across the hall which has provided endless amusement and laughter... (I forgot my camera so I didnt' get any pics but I'm not sure she would have let me post any pics of her anyway so I guess it's all good...)

After the dinner, we then had to book it to Eastwood's (Izzy's school) annual bonfire. My camera was dying so I took pics randomly and hoped they turned out....the school has small bonfires all over the payground for families to sit and conversate. They also have a DJ that the kids LOVE and hot chocolate, cookies and glow sticks. It was cold and spinkled off and on which made it slightly miserable for us but the kids didn't seem to mind. Isaiah spent him time playing catch with E, Quinn and being chased by girls with his friend, Ethan. Quinn spent his time running around amusing himself while chasing a football and playing on the playground. We spent our time talking with friends, chasing Q, being rained on, chasing Q and then chasing Q some more. :)
