"Number 2 & The Zoo"

On Sunday (new Years Day), Jade was doing tricks at the park, on the swing. You can probably imagine what happened. She fell off into the bark below it and came up cringing. I was filming her tricks when she fell so it is all on camera and I won't be putting it up on the site either.
Well, Jade hurt her arm and at the time it didn't look too bad and we put her into a sling. Jade being the person that she is, with a high pain tolerance, didn't make too much of a fuss about it once the initial pain wore off. It wasn't until I showed hubby the video that we decided she needed to go to the doctors. He has more experience then me in the broken bones department (I have only had a broken little toe, he has had too many to count).

Today, 2 days later when things were open, we headed to our doctor and after most of the day spent in cars or in waiting rooms (did I mention that our doctor is at least 30 minutes drive away?) we found out that she had a bone splinter on her right elbow and all we can do for it is keep it in the sling for 3 weeks to give it a chance to heal up. She had a fantastic attitude about it all and took it all in her stride.

The Zoo, is what we did yesterday.

It was fun and if it hadn't been so hot I would have loved to have spent the whole day looking over the place. We saw lots of animals, had a picnic lunch there and enjoyed it all. One thing that did happen was that we saw an ostrich lay an egg. At first it was fussing around with the egg already in it's nest, then it sat down and stood up again. Once it stood up we saw the second egg just sitting there in the dirt nest. That was pretty cool.

Over the next week or so pictures will start popping up to do with the zoo.
