We went up to the mountains today because we wanted to show Karlie one of our favorite family hikes.
It was suppose to be nice and warm, but, well,
this is Colorado. It was windy, cold, muddy, snowy and icy. Wanting to make the best of our special time we “braved” it up. Our little Texan Karlie was freezing as we sat down on the slightly frozen, muddy ground for our picnic before we began our hike. But, boy, was she a trouper!!!
It was pretty slippery, so we were all being careful!!!
Here’s a rock heart, because, well,
soon-to-be married love was in the air!!!
We stopped at a favorite rock to climb up...
After enjoying our UP adventure, I asked the children if we could hike just a little bit further.
This is where the “funny” comes in. I was enjoying all my children, and the beautiful Colorado glories, and,
I fell. Pretty hard... and broke my camera lens. But, that was not the worse part ... my arm was hurting pretty good from where I fell and caught myself. I stood up to gather the children that had run in front of us, and then had to lay down on the side of the trail because I was about to pass out and get sick!!!! What a great way to introduce my future daughter-in-law to the family-LOL.
Well, so much for more hiking...we turned around and headed back to the car with me crying and shaking off and on. Then we headed to the emergency room a few miles away from the trail head with every bump hurting my arm REALLY BAD. Ready for the funny?
An ex-ray confirmed that I had fractured my arm..the left one. If you have been following my week, you know that I was at the emergency room a few days ago because I hurt my right hand and it was in a splint. Now my left arm is in a sling.
Good grief...I can’t even believe this. My babies were wonderful and took great care of us all. Karlie is the greatest!!!! She has now sat with me TWICE while I was at an emergency room. And then she comes home with us and takes care of us. I have been blessed with such precious children.
How are ya’ll doing...I feel behind because I haven’t been able to catch up on notes and blogs?
