The little boy is Jackson. He is Kim's (Casey's friend) little one.
On the way there we drove on the interstate through Oregon and Washington but on the way home we drove down 95/55 through Idaho. It is a much prettier drive but a little slow-going sometimes.
Then....geez...we were just outside of Horseshoe Bend by Cascade Raft and Kayak (at about 9pm) when we saw an accident happen. The car had went off the road, rolled and went down the embankment toward the river. We were the second car there. Jimmy and Warren jumped out of the car to check on the people. They weren't in the river but their car was on it's side and totally smashed. Jimmy and Warren were down there for what seemed like forever then they came up carrying two dogs (who weren't hurt) and handed them to a lady in a truck and went back down to help. Casey had jumped out and ended up directing traffic along with the help of a couple other people. (I was in the car with the kids the whole time...2 hours). Finally a police officer showed up, then an ambulance from Horseshoe Bend, then a whole bunch of firefighters to cut the people out of the car, then Life Flight, then another Life Flight, then someone gave Casey a stop sign, and on and on and two hours later Warren and Jimmy were actually lifting the gurney into the helicopter. (Horseshoe Bend needs help when it comes to emergencies..apparently)
It was a strange, sad experience but at the same time I was glad that my husband and brother set that example for my girls... they were heroes that day and I hope my girls remember.
We haven't heard anything more about the people but KTVB.com said "no word on their condition" so I'd like to think that no news is good news...people being OK isn't exactly the kind of news that usually grabs headlines.
So...there's the weekend for ya.
