No card today just an update of the last few days.
Brooklyn had a fantastic time at One Direction but she was not able to capture Niall's heart, this year. We headed up to the cottage on Sunday morning just in time for a bridal shower for my niece--just family and it was so much fun. Do you love her purple hair? That is Ashley (fun wedding invite HERE), she is so beautiful inside and out. Honestly she is the only person I know that can pull it off and I wouldn't be one bit surprised to see her purple hair and elegant white wedding dress walk down the isle in September!
Monday before heading home we were waiting for my niece and her family to arrive for their vacation before going home.
They were coming in two cars--her husband, Jim, in the truck towing his brand new fishing boat and her and the kids in the van. We got a call around 2:00 that there had been in an accident and Jim was being taken to a hospital close to the cottage. We headed to the hospital to meet them.
Apparently the truck being driven by some younger boys in front of them had missed their turn and did a U turn which they overshot and plowed into the side of Jim's truck! Truck went one way, the boat another and the trailer another. If she had been following any closer she would have been hit too! He is going to be okay, he has a bad concussion. They transferred him Monday night to a trauma unit in Kingston for a CT scan. They released him at 3 in the morning. My niece Danielle, is a RN so he is in good hands and they are all at the cottage now.
Fast forward to Tuesday back at home, I bet you never knew that making a salad for dinner is very dangerous stuff. After an unfortunate incident with cutting the lettuce up my darling daughter took charge and drove her mom to emerg where we spent 4 hours waiting to find out how many stitches I was going to need! A deep cut and that's why it wouldn't stop bleeding. Apparently it's all about the angle, so no stitches but I get to wear a big band aid for the next few days. Really hoping the rest of the week get's back on track.
