Story Time: A Broken Wing

This is a cautionary tale of a young boy who, despite all warnings went up against a fabled beast. The beast was a filled with hot air and it’s scales are a made from a mixture of nylon & ployester oxford. This tale begins on a warm sunny Saturday and everyone was getting ready for a birthday festivity. The day started off normal and relaxed, unaware of the battle to come.

So we all went to a family’s house for a birthday party and they rented out a bouncy house for the kids (and adults lets be honest hahaha). Everything was going rather well and everyone was having fun. Lots of food, drinks and the kids we’re all playing the bouncy house. We then opened gifts for the birthday boy, followed with cake as you do. Then everyone went back to playing.

While we putting some of the larger gifts together and talking. I was told that my son had hurt himself… Looking ahead, I can see that he was cry and his arm was just hanging down to his side. Thinking he might have dislocated it or messed up some of his muscles. After getting him to stop crying long enough to tell me what had happened. We put some ice on his shoulder where he said it hurt and he was fully able to tell us what he did.

It seems that at some point of playing around. He thought it would be a good idea to do a front flip from the bouncy house opening to the slide that was build on. Not being able to stick the landing the way he wanted too. He did land on his arm and bend it backwards… After he was able to move, we took him the the local ER to see if there was more damage than we were seeing.

I believe we were at the ER for almost 3 hours. They did some x-rays and found that he did brake his arm and pulled a few muscles. They gave him a shot small of morphine to help with his pain and put a splint/sling on him. He did have nurse that was hilarious and had a number of dad jokes/dark jokes. Which is right up my son alley, Odin knows that kids loves his bad jokes hahaha. I have to say that kid on morphine is something to see hahaha. He did not stop talking and so, SO MANY JOKES. I wish I got it on video, just to focused on getting everyone home.

So far he is doing better, sleeping is a bit of a challenge sometimes. So there is a lot of napping haha.

So the other day and dear friend of mine gave me a rather EARLY birthday gift. How early you ask? Well my birthday isn’t till October 21 haha. But these are beyond awesome and I now have or close to having the complete Firefly comic series. I haven’t been able to read them yet, but I think I will tonight.

Also if you were wondering what that currency was above the comics. That would also be a gift from my brother-in-law. A gift of money from Firefly😆. I’m thinking about framing it, as soon as I find one haha.

*Update*

I guess this wasn’t a Birthday gift hahaha. It was a bonus for coming into work and helping out. Hmmmm….. Still awesome! But now I was told that there is another gift for my birthday hidden somewhere….

For Jackson’s 7th birthday, he wanted a Star Wars themed birthday. So my wife made this awesome cake with lightsabers made from Rice Krispie treats. One was red and the other was blue,  of course we had a whole slew of decorations how we found over the years. Plus some new ones :). Before the party I made these DIY lightsabers out of wp-1471741963518.jpgwater noodles. Cut them in half and used duct tape along with electrical tape for the hilt. Made one for each kid, so they can run around and beat on each other and not have to worry.

In the background we had all the Star Wars movies playing all day, even found the Ewok movies to play haha. As well as music :). Over all the birthday was a hit and everything went smoothly. Jackson was rather happy and got a lot of cool toys.

wp-1471741959378.jpgNow on Lilly’s 9th birthday(or should I say 9 3/4) she wanted a Harry Potter themed birthday. This one was a bit more difficult to do. There isn’t really party theme items you can just pick up at the store. Or that they cost an arm and a leg to get. So this birthday was about 90% DIY… Again my wife made an amazing cake that was Potter themed. She also made wands for all the kids. I made a banner using photoshop and found some Potter themed jellybeans. Also made some floating candlesticks with LED candles in them. We also had some flying keys that were made for our wedding awhile back. So we reused those.

We had a flying snitch and my wife made some lighting bolts out of plastic beads. I later made some butter beer and chocolate frogs. As well as little chocolate broomstick and with the extra melted chocolate I we made a 20 sided die haha. Like the Star Wars birthday, we had all the Harry Potter movies playing all day.wp-1473189029030.jpgwp-1471741959360.jpg wp-1471741959372.jpg wp-1471741959339.jpg wp-1471741959330.jpgwp-1471741959267.jpgwp-1471741959176.jpg

By the time everything was done.. I believe we both pasted out from all the work that was put into all this. It’s okay tho, because it made for some really good memories and also ideas for other parties that might come our way.
