So the day that I knew would inevitably come came yesterday. Kay called me at work yesterday and this is the conversation.
Kay: Hi, I need to go to a hospital, which one should I go to?
Kris: Why do you need to go to the hospital?
Kay: I think I need to have someone look at my arm.
Kris: Why do you need someone to look at your arm?
Kay: I think I broke it. (At this point I feel like I am talking to a four year old who doesn't want his mommy to know what he did.)
Kris: How did you break it?
Kay: Well someone pulled out in front of me and I had to lay the motorcycle down.
Kris: (Now in panic mode) Are you alright, are you hurt anywhere else? Are the police there? Did the paramedics look at you?

Any way I had him come to the hospital that I work at because there I can pull strings which was nice. As soon as he got the the ER they took him back and a doctor saw him within ten minutes. So the verdict is
1. Broken left arm
2. Road rash on both arms
3. Road rash on right knee which is also swollen and black and blue
4. Bruised heal.
Needless to say he is hurting quite a bit but he is alive which is all that matters. They put a splint on his arm with a sling, bandaged up the road rash and sent us home. Tomorrow we go see the orthopedic surgeon. Hopefully he will be able to just set the bone and cast the arm and he will not need surgery. I will keep you posted.

Nicholas came over yesterday and brought some friends with their three children to ride the horses. It was a very nice day and I believe everyone had a good time. Brooklyn liked petting the horses and even wanted to kiss them but when Grandpa set her up on them she wasn't quite sure about that.

My grandmother Letitia Ione Dunn Ashbaker Jensen Smith had this interesting thing she would do with her legs all the time. She would sit in a chair with her legs up. Now you might ask why is that interesting, everyone sits with their legs up. Well she did it without anything underneath them. She had to have had the strongest abdominal muscles in town. Anyway apparently she has passed this trait down to her great, great granddaughter. Emily says Lorelai sits like this all the time.

Love the flip-flops

Mom doesn't want me sucking my thumb so I'll suck my toe instead.
