Bowling Gone Bad

Last Sunday we decided to do something fun. We asked Abigail what she wanted to do, and her answer was Rollerskating. She heard her cousins talking about skate night at their school, and that's what put the idea in her head. When she asked Daddy, his answer was,"No way. That's too dangerous for someone your size." So, on that statement alone, we decided to go bowling.

We got there, got our shoes on and started our game. It was the best game of bowling I've ever had....two strikes in the first 4 frames. Abigail was having the time of her life!!!!!! They had these ramp things were a child can place her ball and it rolls the ball down the alley after they push it. She was having a great game too.

Right before the fifth frame, things turn ugly. Little Miss Independence just HAD to carry her ball by herself. As she was walking to the ramp, the ball started to slip out of her hand. Instead of just letting the ball fall to the ground, she thought she needed to catch it. The weight of the ball pulled her hand down with it and then she and the ball crashed down on the floor. The result of this little spill was our first trip to the ER and this:

That darn ball broke 2 fingers in her right index finger. She was a trooper in the emergency room; especially considering how long they made us wait. We had to keep her awake, so we had a mini photo shoot in the room while we were waiting for the doctor. Here's some of the pics.

She is recovering very well. The doctor said it should be healed within 3 weeks. Abigail has been trying to move it a lot more in the past few days, which is a great sign!! It just stinks that she has to start preschool with such a big boo boo; especially since it's on her right hand and she does everything right handed.
