So Tuesday Troy had to work on his day off so the kids & I decided to make Troy a special dinner when he got home, we made lobster, crab legs, chedder garlic biscuits, pasta & some beets from our garden & cheesecake for dessert. We had just finished eating, the kids were cleaning up the table & Linki was finishing up. He was finished & wanted to get down from the table so Addy thought she would help him to the livingroom, just before the carpet they fell. I jumped up & picked them both up. I knew his leg was broken then, I was so sad & mad & felt so bad for my poor baby. He didn't cry too much but we had Angie come & check it, she took some of the kids to her house. Troy gave Linki a blessing & we were off to the hospital, after we dropped the rest of the kids off with Angie & Clint.( We are so blessed to have them so close. They are always willing to help us no matter what.)
We got to the Timpanogos hospital around 10. The same nurse that has helped us the last 2 times was there again & got him an xray right away. His femur was broken right above his cast, but their ortho doctor doesn't do the kind of cast that he needed so they called an ambulance & sent us up to Primary Childrens.

Just about a week when we got back from vacation Linki broke his leg.The emergency room told us he would have a cast on for 6-8 weeks. But once we got in to see our dr., he said only 4 weeks & then maybe another temporary cast if he needs it longer. So we are on his 3rd week of having the cast on & 4 weeks since he broke it. it has been a little challenging since I have to carry him to & from the bathroom. But he has learned to get around the house pretty quickly. I have caught him doing handstands, climbing up the slide in his room, climbing up the ladder & up & down the stairs. Also a few other funny things. It is cute to see how quickly he has adapted & how smart he is at finding new ways to do things.

One day of our vacation we went to SeaWorld! The kids loved seeing all of the animals. Even Rylynn liked most of it.
Here we are waiting for the dolphin show to begin. The kids all wanted to sit in the splash zone for all the shows but it was overcast & not very warm, so we decided to sit in the higher seats.
