Colin is hit by a drunk driver

A drunk driver with a large Dodge pickup tried to dial his cell phone, lost control of the truck, careened off Barber Blvd in Portland, up an embankment and then spun back across three lanes of traffic and hit Colin head on. Colin was taken to OHSU with multiple fractures of his tibia and fibula. A rod was inserted into his tibia. Although he is suffering a lot of pain we are all thankful his injuries were not more serious. He is recuperating in Salem.

It's going to be a boy!

Devon and Jeremy's baby is going to be a boy. They are calling him Heath Smith Toomey. We can hardly wait till June 10 to welcome him to the world.

Humorous side note:
 Dennis was telling our neighbors about Heath and in his excitement he said his name was going to be heathsmith.com! Needless to say the neighbors were a little surprised.
