Sticks & Stones May Break My Bones But Trampolines Will Too!

We went to my sister's house on Saturday to celebrate R turning 7 years old.  She got a trampoline for her birthday and they had a blast playing on it.  Uncle Buck even took part....

But.... apparently adults aren't supposed to jump on trampolines with children, especially young children.  Their bones can't handle the force and poor little L found that out the hard way!  We had to make a trip to the ER, first time for L!  She was pretty nervous, but was such a brave little girl and did so good.

Laying perfectly still for x-rays.

M&M's make almost everything better!

It turned out that she broke her left tibia AND fibula.  The doctor explained it as when like crushing a pop can, that's what her little bones did.

"If I have to have a cast, it at least needs to be pretty!"
 Being in a cast isn't any fun, ESPECIALLY in the summer, but at least my little trooper still has a smile on her face! Can't keep a good girl down, right?
