Basically he broke off the corner of the larger bone on the right near the top, before the cluster of bones. I don't know how to edit pictures and stuff so this is all I've got. Wish us luck and please send good vibes our way for a quick recovery.

The kids were so excited for Chris to be home that they pampered him all day long. They made his cereal for him...twice. Made flavored waters for him...twice. They even tried to make him pinky swear that he won't leave us for that long again. Me Too!!! All in all he had a good time but it was really roughin' it. Not to mention his wrist, I'm convinced it's broken. It was really hard for me not being able to even talk to him for a whole week...I told him it's not fair to me and the next time he goes (hopefully never) he'll have to take his own satellite with him so he can at least call and talk to us!
Look at that scruff...
So these are the three "before" pictures I got of Chris before his trip. He is home now and is a little hurt. Within the first hour of the trip he got bucked off of his horse and we think he broke his wrist. He was bucked off into a pile of rocks and hurt his hip, back, knee and the worst was his wrist. For the first three days of the trip he couldn't even move his fingers because he was so swollen. When the swelling went down the pain didn't subside and he just nursed it the best he could. Luckily his dad had a carpel tunnel brace that he used to entire trip to immobilize his wrist. Last night when he got home we washed the brace and he didn't have it for 2 hours and couldn't stand the pain. I think it's broke, but we'll see. We are biting the bullet and taking him in tomorrow even though we don't have insurance. Wish us luck!
We came all the way up here to catch teensy tiny fish?
This is considered BIG for up there!
Hey Ty, where did you get your awsome hat...Toys R Us?
Hey Ty, that's a big fish for a little guy like you to handle...

I also thought, Heck while I'm doing this I might as well paint the stools too...They are a color called "Oregano" and they too look really good. I still need to poly the tops of them but other than that, they're done!
Oh and by the way, No I can't help you paint your table, I'm too tired!

So we went to Kung Fu Panda today in Layton at the AMC movie theatre and this is what was there visiting for the Dark Knight premiere...A Real Live Bat...Yes, that little black spot above Grady is a BAT!!! And...it's alive, much to our disbelief. We thought it was dead. His brother was "hanging out" on the ceiling of the overhang thingy at the theatre. Way cool to see up close and probably something we will never see again. Some really brave guy nudged them and they flew off....Oh....and by the way....Kung Fu Panda was sooooooo good! We laughed our little butts off!

I think I gave birth to a bunch of fish babies...my kids love to swim. They are so good at it too. In fact, they all learned how to swim in the same week this summer, without any lessons. Even Jenner loves the water. She even tries to pry my hands off of her so she can go out on her own. She did this very thing 3 times this day and got a good drink of swim water, gross. We had a great time at the pool that day and I came home yet again a little sunburned, but I do love a good tan!

I've been meaning to post this recipe for awhile but my summer got away from me real fast. To me the marking of summertime is when we make macaroni salad for the first time. Nobody makes it quite like Aunt Sally, and it is definitely a favorite for Chris and I. I hope you like it as much as we do. It is especially good with some grilled chicken and some potatoe chips. Yum!
The amount of noodles and vegi's is equal. Make as much as you want or as little as you want. We usually make a whole bag of noodles and then chop as many vegi's as we need.
Small macaroni noodles, boiled and cooled
Vegi's diced small:
4-5 ribs Celery
4-5 Roma tomatoes
1-2 Cucumber, peeled and seeded
2-4 Green onions
Aunt Sally also adds avacado, but I leave it out.
The dressing is just Miracle Whip, easy as that. We like our's a little more on the "wet" side so I dump in the Miracle Whip. Salt and Pepper to taste before serving. Like I said, this is a summer favorite at our house so we have it alot. It keeps well in the fridge too.
