A Bumpy Stay-cation.

Good evening, it is Thursday.

Happy Birthday to my cousin Emily! And Happy Anniversaries to both My parents and Maren's parents! Both sets of our folks celebrate 48 years this month.

This President's week vacation is almost over! And what a strange vacation it's been. Only Lillie and I are on vacation as Hansen and Preston have school, and Maren has work. So it's kind of been dad/daughter stay-cation. We've gone to malls and restaurants. We've gone on walks. But what nearly 14 year old hipster wants to hang out with her dad the whole time? So Lillie decided to venture out on her own and walk to the stores to get some ice-cream and do some shopping. On her walk home, Lillie gets hit by a car! Yeah, no joke! In a crosswalk even! Lillie will be just fine. She has bumps, bruises, and a very sore knee. 911 was dialed. Lillie got to visit with police and firefighters. Once home, she and Maren took a trip to urgent care to make sure her knee was OK. Which it will be. But for now she is limping around and admiring some cool swelling.
This is a package I sent Preston. One of two. Yup, while his visit was great, too short really (Friday-Monday), he left a few things behind. LOL. On his visit he gave Lillie a very nice haircut. These are his scissors. He said he was needing a water bottle, so I sent him this one! Do you think he'll love it?
This picture is from just a few hours ago. I know, right. Snow/sleet/hail/whatever. The world was blanketed in snow. Just a few hours prior Lillie and I were driving in the sunshine! Is it spring yet?

Enjoy the rest of your President Week! This narrative of Lillie and I vacationing while the boys have school for four days will take a sad twist come June. The boys will get out of school toward the beginning of June, but due to snow days, Lillie and I will be in school till the bitter end of June...

See you tomorrow.

How scary that Lillie got hit by a car! What was wrong with that driver?!? We're glad she's okay.

Sorry to hear about Lillie's accident, you have to be extra defensive, driving or walking around. Love, susanna

Oh no!!! That is most certainly not a happy lead up to a birthday! I'm so glad Lillie's okay. I guess after that, hanging out with dad might not be so bad after all...
