Saturday....

Saturday we got up, had a good breakfast and set out for a nice bike ride.  Doug had to practice for a special on Sunday at the church and then we had a graduation party to attend down the road at the park.  It's all down hill on the way... which in turns means its all uphill on the way back.  Things were going really good until we hit one portion.  We still aren't sure what happened exactly, but Madalyn crashed.  God was good as we were spaced out pretty good and she didn't get hit by Marissa or I who were both behind her.  We did have a few band aids with us as well as water so we cleaned her up best we could until we could get to Grandma Jenkins house and do a better job.  She jumped back on her bike like a champ though!  I'm so proud of her!   All in all, we rode between 15-20 miles and the girls did great!  When we got home I cleaned up her wounds again and sprayed some of this stuff on it.  It's for animals, but we have had such good luck with on the dogs in the past and its safe for puppies, kittens, ferrets, and nursing animals that we figured it was fine.  Doug doubled checked with a vet friend of his and he confirmed that it would do the trick.  

It worked great!  Within 4 hours, her arms were scabbed over and no longer oozing and her knee looked a lot better.  We both said later that we should have taken crash site pictures for the blog, but maybe you would all have rather we didn't! ;)  Anyhow, this is how she looks as of Monday morning...

Her knee even has new skin on it already!  We are hoping to get her knee healed up good before we head to Darien Lake next week!
Despite it all, we did have a great day and we really enjoyed our bike ride!
