4th of July Knockout

Luckily, our power came back before the 4th of July.  We decorated the kids bikes for the neighborhood bike parade, and boy was it hot!  Nash & Harley only made it through half of the parade route.  In the evening we barbecued with our friends the Johnson's and Scott's parents, then walked to the fireworks show at Langley High School.  When we got home, we busted out our personal stash of fireworks and the kids took turns lighting them.  It was during this portion of the festivities that I got knocked out-cold on the patio.  Nash was leaning down getting something and I leaned over him for something else.  He raised up quickly nailing me in the eye with his noggin.  All I can remember is thinking I am going down, next thing I remember Scott was hovering over me trying to pick me up, Atley was yelling at Nash, "You killed our mother!" and Nash was crying and saying he was sorry. I am told I was only out a few seconds.  I was nauseous and had a headache for two days, but my black eye/cheek is finally getting better.
