Yesterday my family and I went to Noah’s Ark located about an hour away from our home here in Wisconsin.
He not only provided the money to allow us all to go, but an absolutely beautiful day as well. Mmmmmm…what a treat!
As I packed for our day of adventure, I decided to bring along an extra bandage. My foot had been dry for a while and if it’s not covered with a bandaid at all times, it tends to crack and bleed. It was feeling pretty good that morning…no signs of cracking but I covered it anyway just for protection and brought an extra along just in case.
Of course my original bandage fell off pretty much instantaneously, but the extra one was dry and safe back at ‘home base’… our meeting point throughout the day… waaaaaaay on the other side of the park. My foot was fine so, naaaaaaaaah…wasn’t going to trek back that far just yet.
As the day went on, my foot was doing great and I actually never needed to re-bandage. Sweet! And as our fun in the sun was winding down, some of the kids went on the Quadzilla…a water tube slide where 4 people race to the bottom.
My daughter Sam was one of the racers and as she flew down the slide she somehow flipped her mat and when she got off the slide, she came over to sit down and noticed her knee was bleeding.
Somehow she skinned her knee on the ride and as everyone knows, most pool and water park rules state:
NO OPEN WOUNDS!
Hmmm…good thing it was at the end of the day AND that we just ‘happened to have’ that extra bandage.
“And what kind of bandage was it?” you ask…
Why, a Nexcare, extra large, waterproof bandage of course ! 🙂
