Helmets Required took to the banks of the Mississippi for some fishing and lunch. Lots of people hang out down there and have fires so we just go down, find a fire pit and start up our own. This day we made hot dogs. There is something about cooking food over a river fire that makes it so much more tasty.
Dancer caught a couple red horses. It is thrilling to pull these big fish in.
The boys climbed up and down the banks and over the rocks they don't usually fish. The river is still quite high making the banks much narrower than usual.
With all the excitement of a new kitten we found that it had gotten dark out but the chores hadn't been done yet. Spark ran out to do chores so he could get back in quickly and some how fell down hurting his leg. This sent us to the ER to have it check out.
He came home with this and crutches with the instructions to follow up on Monday. There was no evidence of a break but when dealing with growth plates they said it can take a while for these things to show up on X-rays. He spent a few days on the crutch and it kept feeling a little better every day so we skipped the follow up. A couple weeks later and he was as good as new.
It was a long day that ended in the wee hours of the morning after sitting in ER. I was happy to fall into bed, there had been enough excitement for one day.
