Luke's 2nd set of stitches

Okay, not really, but according to Doctor Grandpa who happened to be with us when the unfortunate accident happened, it was definitely stitch worthy. Instead of 2 or 3 stitches Luke sports 2 studly butterfly band aids!


It all happened on a pleasant day at the US Independence Hall building in downtown Philly. We met up with G & G Rollins before they were off to the airport for a couple last stops around historic Philadelphia. We were on the way out and Luke tripped on one of the bricks that made up the old roads. His hands weren't fast enough to catch his head so his head rammed into another old road brick. Of course we were asked to sign waivers before leaving the historic, federal property. He came up with a hole the width of a pencil right in the middle of his forehead.

Grandpa didn't have time before his flight to take Luke to a clinic where he would have been able to borrow some DermaBond (aka super glue for humans) and fix it up himself. Instead he instructed me on how to apply the butterfly.

So now we're counting on Luke to split open the other eyebrow next month so that he'll have a nice even, triangular look!

Hi Niki! This is Ali Lasher (Brown now) I'm Bobby Lasher's sister from Fremont Stake way back when. I was on Wes and Steph Cullumber's blog and came across yours. My sister Josie and I were catching up with you through your blog and noticed that your family lives in PA. My sister Amy just moved to Pheonixville, close to Philly. Her husband is specializing for Dental school, so they'll be there for 2 years. But anyways we just wanted to say hi and hope you don't mind that we read up a little about your family! You have a cute family.

I got a scar in the middle of my forehead like that when I was a kid but it has since traveled to the side to the corner of my hairline. don't worry too much about it. He has almost got all of his pirate outfit ready for Halloween, just help him lose a few teeth and he'll be there!

Little boys should come with a hazard label. Pretty soon you won't be ruffled by anything! Hope it heals quickly!

That's such a cute picture of Luke, he looks so proud of his cut. What a tough little guy!

He's on a roll! Oh dear! Katie has huge scrapes on her nose and forehead, her and Luke would look like quite the pair together! And I had no idea about Mexico! That will be so crazy, but such a neat experience. And a girl's weekend is totally in order... hopefully we can work something out. And me not knowing about things makes me realize that is has been way too long since I've talked to you... I need to call you soon! Maybe when one of us is in the same place for more than a day! I don't know how you guys do it... this is exhausting! ;)

A boy is no boy without a few scars on his body.
