Coral Pink 2008

So, yes, I know I have been slacking a bit on my blog. I don't know what else to say, but let's not let the kettle be callin' others black (eh hmm, NATE! Short fart posts and a video hardly count for good blogs either!) Once Savior of the World finished (I got a post started for that) we hda a couple days before heading to Coral Pink with my sister's family and her in-laws and a lot of other relatives of those in-laws. We had a great time and were glad for the invite. Actually, we're holding out for an invite next year, even with a baby, so you know that means I had a good time. I think one of my favorite parts of the whole thing was that Tyler didn't run off to go fishing or golfing at any point in the weekend. He was SUCH a help and (even though I had told him I'd only go if he knew I couldn't do too much chasing of kids) had a good time himself riding the 50's and hitching a ride on the rhino out to the dunes here and there.

Everything was going pretty much without a hitch until Thursday night after dinner when Erin's SIL, Debby, came into our camp with Brevin in her arms. Apparantly Brev was watching her dogs play and wasn't watching the dog leash that clothes-lined his little ankles and wiped him out flat on his chest. Well, he was wailing and carrying on when we figured he's either dislocated his shoulder or broken his collar bone. MY reaction was to let him sleep it off, but Tyler insisted that we take him to the Kanab ER. I will not claim to be cold-hearted, only optomistic, as I am imagining what it will mean if it is indeed broken. So I stayed to shower with the other three kids and Tyler went to the ER (WHICH he said is WAY better than ours here in Vegas since he was the only one in the place!) where Brevin had X-rays and, sure enough, his collar bone is broken right where his shoulder and collar bone meet. When they came back I asked him if he wanted to go home, and he quickly refused.

We are really grateful for the good times we had. Tyler has said all this week we really celebrated Earth Day last weekend while we were camping. It was so nice to have the kids run around and ride their bikes and NOT have to worry about too much (other than how much candy Caylee had bamboozled from Grandma and Grandpa Mohler's camp.) I LA-OVE hanging out with my sister and visiting with all the other fun folks who were up there. AND, let's just say I did my fair share of walking to get this kid even further down the shute. We'll see how all that goes tomorrow at my appointment. Anyway, here's some of the pictures I uploaded to an album for your viewing pleasure.
