ByeBye Camry

Boo Hoo Hoo, I had to say goodbye to the Camry this weekend. For those of you who have known me since high school know that I had a treasured Camry back in high school and college. Both Camrys have gotten me through many years and many miles.

Collin & I were in a car accident Saturday night. We were on our way to church and to run errands, and going through an intersection, a high school girl "didn't see us...ha!" and turned left right in front of us. We collided, and I t-boned her car pretty good. Both of my air bags went off, and the front end was pretty well crunched. Collin and I were both fine...I had a tiny cut on my forehead and a pretty good knot from where I hit something...still trying to figure out what I hit.

Dylan and Matt were at the truck race at the KS Speedway, so they had to rush home. Matt said that he even had to flag down a parking attendant to give him an escort out of the parking lot. Here they are before we called them.

My friend and neighbor Allison came up and gave us a ride home. It was wierd...I've never been in a wreck when I couldn't drive my car home.

The insurance company has already declared the Camry a total loss (well, what can you was only worth $3500). We should get the check from the insurance next week, so we'll be hitting the pavement looking for a car next week.

I'm very thankful that Collin was alright...he was perfectly fine!!! I talked to his pediatrician on Saturday night, and he didn't think it was necessary for us to take him to the ER. Just gave him some Motrin, and he was good to go. I dug out the Hydrocodone from my last c-section, and that got me through the next couple of days. I wasn't sore as I thought I would be.

Other than all of this, we've been pretty quiet around here this week...went to the park on Sunday, practices were all rained out, and Matt & Dylan went to see the rest of the truck race on Monday afternoon (after they left on Saturday, the race was postponed because of rain and tornadoes). I think God was watching out for my boys...that's the one good thing that has come out of the car accident. They had left way before the tornado sirens went off.

This Saturday we're having a garage sale at our house. It is the Gardner City-wide sale. Adrienne is bringing over some stuff, and Jenny is going to stop by and hang out with us.

Have a good weekend!

Girls Night Out

Last night Adrienne and I went to the David Cook concert. For those of you who may not watch American Idol, he won the contest last year...and he's from right in the KC Metro Area...Blue Springs to be exact. And Adrienne looooves him!!!! The concert was at the Ameristar Casino, so we ate supper and had a couple drinks, and then headed into the concert. It was definitely 90% women, 10% men in the audience. The poor guys in the audience didn't really look like they wanted to be there...more than likely they were convinced to go by their significant others. Hee, hee...our significant others volunteered to stay home with the kiddos.

David Cook was awesome!!! He only sang for a little over an was definitely too short. We hung out in the parking lot after the concert in hopes that he would come out and sign autographs. I wanted nothing more than a snapshot of him with me and Adrienne. We thought that since he was in his hometown that he would definitely want to sign autographs for us hometown women!! But, unfortunately, he drove right past us in a white least he rolled down the window and waved goodbye.

Adrienne and I did drive around the entire Kansas City area looking for the darn white SUV. We checked out the Power & Light District and Westport, but alas, no sign of him.

Oh well, I guess I can at least say that I was 5 or 6 feet away from him as he drove past us.

Here are some pics!
This is his brother...he came up on stage to sing background vocals for one of the songs. I think it was "Declaration."
His brother was the one who convinced him to audition for American Idol.

Picture Post

This is going to be a post full of wrap up what we've been doing the past couple of weeks!

Dylan jamming with Daddy's IPod on a cold and rainy Saturday.

Dylan lost his 2nd tooth...took a little more tugging by Daddy and this time it did bleed. Yuck...I'm shuddering just thinking about it.

Future K-State linebacker.

Look at these precious little toes.

Coach Davy (the boys' former soccer coach) wrapping the 3 boys up at the McCarty Easter Egg Hunt. It was so great to see him and Robin and Caden. Since they decided not to do soccer this year, we haven't seen them in ages!!

Collin figured out what to do at the easter egg hunt. It started out cold and windy, but it turned out to be an awesome afternoon...hanging out with all of our about 100 other friends and family of the McCarty's.
The fam on Easter Morning. Good grief...can Matt & I stand any further apart? We weren't mad at each other or anything...I promise!!

Collin and Daddy at the PTO Art Walk at Dylan's school. This was tonight. Collin is showing off his tye-dyed "Hand Made at Little Wonders" t-shirt from daycare. Boy, are we blessed by having Heather take care of Collin for us. I consider her to be a good friend too.
