Too Close for Comfort

So Joe and I went to Mesquite this weekend and it was great! It was about 80 degrees and nothing better then smelling like smoke at the end of the day. We saw Juno, which if you haven't seen it, it is a must! So Saturday afternoon after laying out by the pool Joe and I go back to the room and I get a phone call from my dad. Now my dad is a little over dramatic and makes the situation sound a lot worse then it was. This is how the phone call starts... Ximmer got a in a car accident last night, flipped his car going 100 mph 3-4 times and split a tree in half. Now pause from the story and let me remind you I have gotten too many of these phone calls in high school ending in and he died. So I of course think worse and Ximmer is dead and tears startcoming to my eyes. Ok continue my dad goes on and says they were trying to jump a dip and got a little higher then they wanted and Ximmer knew he was in trouble. His friends climbed out of the back window and walked to someones house to call the hospital. Now looking at these pictures make me sick because it looks like they should have been dead( the car was actually upside down). There were 3 of them and one guy broke his neck but amazingly isn't paralyzed and should be out of the neck brace in 3 months. I am so thankful that they are still alive!

Oh my gosh, that is so scary. I can't believe looking at those pictures that any of them survived. Boys are so stupid! AAAHHH! That scares me because I'm sure my brothers do stupid things like that and I am going to kill them. I'm glad that everyone is ok. Steven, the one who broke his neck, is my cousin Rylie's boyfriend. I am so glad they all survived the crash, it really is a miracle.

WOW!! I am so sorry to hear about that. Amazing they are alive. Hope their recovery goes well. P.S. Juno is one of my favorite movies of all time. It is so random and hysterically funny. I actually posted about it on my blog and talked about the hamburger phone. I downloaded the movie to my computer when it was still in the theatre. It is hysterical. :D

Tori that makes me want to cry. I am so glad Ximmer is okay. You need to tell him he needs to knock it off pronto. Crazy boys! I'm glad he's alright...
