The week before Mikey was born (a little over 3 years ago), my mom rolled her Explorer on the highway after she took her seat belt off to remove her jacket. She spent the night in the hospital and had to tell me only 1/2 truths (car problems) about why it was taking her so long to come down to see me so I wouldn’t go in to labor.
2 years ago, my Dad drove from Vegas (celebrating Mikey’s bday) back home only to get in a 4 wheeling accident (wearing no helmet) where he faced either running head on into an on coming vehicle or drive over the ledge and head down close to the icy river. He chose the latter, rolled a few times, broke some things, had a long ambulance ride to the hospital about 45 minutes away.
Last year we celebrated by ourselves for fear someone else would have bad luck with moving vehicles!
This year we opted to go see these “unlucky” grandparents and celebrate Mikey’s birthday up there, hoping and praying the weather would be good and we wouldn’t get in a wreck!
Couldn’t have been better conditions! We had a reunion with some extended family, went ice fishing, sledding, 4 wheeling on the ice, had a party, and celebrated like crazy!
I’m afraid we can’t top this party even if we wanted to. It was simple, with family, a Cars cake the Mikey really wanted Grandma to make, and just lots of fun with 2nd cousins he’s hardly known until now! Yay for family parties and Happy Birthday Mikey!
