A funny thing happened on the way to the fair

Actually, it wasn't so funny, it was a bit scary! We spent a lofty Sunday morning at home, recuperating from the not-so-successful garage sale and an off-the-wall wedding reception. It was unfortunately a late night for the kids, so we missed church AGAIN! We were all packed and ready to go to the fair, we just had to take down our sale signs. I was in the house when I heard Ben screaming. I go outside to see Teddy walking him down the street, holding his arm. I immediately thought broken arm, but as they got closer, saw that it was his hand. The little man had been unable to reach a sign, so he climbed the fence. His foot slipped and he tried to stop himself by grabbing the top of the fence. Well, instead of going to the fair, we spent 4 hours at the emergency room.
This was after they'd stitched him up. After he awoke the morgue inhabitants with his piercing screams from the anesthetic needle. Poor guy, you'll notice a small patch in the middle of his pants. Let's just say he was VERY scared leading up to the stitches, and lost control a bit while being numbed! :( This picture makes me want to cry, he looks so miserable, but trying so hard to be brave!

They gave him a cool Matchbox set of cars for being so brave. Here he is outside the hospital.
