Safety is important. We have told the kids often that quads are fun, but dangerous and gravity cannot be overridden. Sooooo, who spends an hour in emergency but DAD! Ralph had a collision with his helmet while combating a dune and losiing. He has a gash in his chin, just below his lower lip and he has stitches in and outside of his mouth. Three of his teeth have taken on a new position and it remains to be seen what will happen with them. We'll probably check that out when we get home. He is not really in pain and has eaten and is chipper and smiling! Unfortunately the next steak will probably have to be blender steak:(
Days full of cousins, friends and time spent together with people we haven't seen for a long time....it is going great and we have a week left before we hop on that plane again to head back to Switzerland. We are currently spending some time in Central Oregonm all together at a beautiful spot nestled among the Ponderosa Pines. We are all here together which is the way I like it best! The boys love all of the sand action and are convinced that we could build a track in our backyard. Alinya seems to be a hit and she frequently has to ward off abundant affection!
