Twas the night before my birthday...

My mom came into town Thursday night. We went shopping today and had a blast, BUT on the car ride home we were in a 5 car accident on Bell Rd. We were rear-ended 3 times (we were the 2nd car out of the 5). I was terrified at first because Gavin had just gone to sleep and it woke him up and he started screaming. Luckily both Gavin and Logan were just fine, my mom kinked her neck a little and I bumped the back of my head (I already feel fine). We were sandwiched in between two cars so we couldn't go anywhere. 2 firetrucks came, a bunch of ambulances and the police. Each car got their own personal team of paramedics. Our blood pressure was taken and I was asked questions like 'what year is it?' Our Jeep Patriot was awesome and despite being squished, we only had a few scratches which I couldn't believe. All the cars behind us had to be towed, but we drove away.

Just wanted to update everyone. I'll post some fun pictures tomorrow.

Happy birthday and glad no one got hurt to bad. That is a tough combo, birthday and accident. I hope the rest of your day was more fun than that. We were thinking of you today.
