Wondering how we got from picture A to picture E?

(There might be some extremely scrumptious pictures of Merrick and others not so scrumptious.)
Picture A

Picture B Picture C

Picture D Picture E
Read On...

We were at my inlaws house, outside playing. Look how much fun we were having.


Then, Merrick thought it was a great idea to try and use a pogo stick...
umm.. not a great idea.
He fell head first onto the edge of that beautiful blue brick sidewalk.

He had to get three stitches, which Tyson could have done excellently, but we didn't want Merrick to think daddy was hurting him, and Tyson wanted to be a daddy, not a doctor.
(He can stitch them up all he wants when they are older and know that daddy is helping them, not hurting them. However, hopefully there won't be a need.)

So we headed to the ER.
Awesome.

Waiting...
Stitching...
First thing he said when we left the hospital...
"I have to go show 'Batenzie' (Mackenzie) my bracelets."
Here's to no more stitches... at least until they are older and Tyson can do it!

So sad...but let's face it, he's a pretty active boy, I seriously doubt this is his last visit to the E.R....sorry!!! Glad he was smiling in the end.
P.S. Nice picture documentation..very impressive!

ok this is sad, but can I tell you he is precious????? I love his dimples.I am also glad his doctor daddy was just a daddy, later on when he's at scout camp it will be cool to have a dad who can do stitches in the middle of nowhere. You have the cutest famil and I love to read about them and you!
