What A Night

Last night we attended a wedding and decided since we were all dressed up to go checkout the downtown scence since we hadn't made out there yet. We had only been there about 15 minutes when we noticed Robert had two missed calls from his mom. Immediately we knew something must be wrong for her to be calling so late. When we called her back we found out his two sisters, brothers-in law and friend had been in a bad accident. Turns out they were on their way home when they were hit by a drunk driver. Luckily his sister sped up so that the car wouldn't hit them head on and instead ended up clipping the tail end of their truck. The impact sent them spinning and eventually flipping on it's side. Some people who saw it all happened stopped to help and thank God they all made it out safe (cuts, bruises, swelling). Since both his sisters are pregnant they were rushed to McAllen Medical and Edinburg Children's hospital. We were all relieved to hear that the babies were ok. It's times like these where we are reminded that there is always someone watching over us.
