We had an awesome 4th! In the morning we went to my sister's house and had a huge pancake breakfast with the works. There was a fruit bowl, scrambled eggs, and some really good turkey sausage. It was so good! Actuallly, before that they had a mile fun run. It started at 8am, so we didn't get there in time. I was up at 5:30 anyway for an 8 mile run, so I wasn't too sad I missed it.

Then was the parade. My sister organized it with neighbors and friends. It was so much fun and we even had people come out of their houses and watch. There were a lot of kids, which made it fun. We waved flags and rode bikes and strollers and threw candy and marched to patriotic music. And then all the kids had popsicles. It was perfect.

Later in the day, we had a bbq with my sister and our friends. I just love bbq's! Scott and my cousin Braden and our friend David played Rock Band for almost 2 hours. Scott was the lead singer and did a great job...and it was his first time!

After the bbq we all came home and slept. I was so tired. Later that night we had our friends over for fireworks. Our neighbors spent $1200 on fireworks, so it was like our own Stadium of Fire in our backyard! It was awesome. Ryley didn't go to bed until 11pm! I just love the 4th of July and I feel so blessed to live in this country!

So, about 2 weeks ago I noticed Ryley's teeth were looking a little grayish, purple. I told Scott and he looked online and we thought maybe she was getting too much flouride. Well, I wanted to be sure what was going on, so I got her in to the dentist pretty quick. Come to find out she somehow bumped her mouth and her 2 front teeth are half-way dead! I say half way because they took an x-ray and the root has not been damaged. I almost started crying at the dentist! I was so sad, but hopefully they will go back to her normal color. I was so scared the root was damaged and that she would have to go 3 more years without any front teeth. In the last post you can kind of tell her front teeth are discolored. Crazy huh?

did the dentist say that her teeth would go back to being white again or does she have to have the darker teeth until they fall out in a few years? i'm sorry to hear that.

Looks like you had a great 4th of July!! You were super busy that day, but it looked like you had fun. That is so sad about Ryley's teeth. I think I would have cried too.

The dentist said he sees a lot of kids with gray teeth from falling. It is possible they will return to their normal color....let's hope!

Mama said...

i hope they do too.
