no ride

i left work a little later than usual for the planned wednesday night ride.
i was going to hit palos for the first time this year.
at first it wasn't looking good as the stevenson came to a dead stop. accident. all lanes closed.
while sitting in traffic i got a panicked call from john. casey had an accident on a trampoline and lost all 4 top teeth. She's stitched up and swollen. poor kid. luckily they are all still baby teeth. we'll find out today if they can see any damage to her permanent teeth. fingers crossed.


it's only 7:30 in the morning and already zoe is cruising for a day of getting in trouble.

Holy crap! Since fatherhood this stuff really freaks me out. I know it's meant to be, but... Best luck to Casey.

If I was racing BMX, that would totally be the best psych-out face ever!

A guy I used to ride with lost his front teeth from a crash. From then on his new name was Snaggletooth.

owww. poor kid. I hope she gets better quickly.
and I hope she at least gets some good show and tell and storytelling mileage out of it....

My kids always messed around on our tramp. Made me so nervous. Just wait till the backflips start.

I hope she's okay! That makes me cringe just thinking about it.

When i was younger i fell down the stairs and knocked out my four bottom teeth. Hospitals and all. They just took a little longer to grow in...I looked way goofy being 10 with a big gap

Best of luck to casey!

I love the "check out my war wounds" pic. Tough chic! She's gonna be just fine.

Ouch kiddo......
I've got a set of "Billy-Bob" teeth she can borrow until her new ones come in....just so I get them back by Halloween.

Good luck and speedy recovery.
