It's a beautiful summer day on our recent trip to Indiana and we're sitting outside in my mom's backyard, under the shade of a giant tree. My mom, sister and I in a little group, with my daughter, Nikki and her cousin, Ben, in another little group, slightly ahead of us.
We hear some rustling from the tree and we all look up, expecting to see a bird or a squirrel, but it's a branch, breaking off from the tree, for no apparent reason. It falls, right on to Nikki's back! If she hadn't reacted and started to move away, it would have fallen right on her head!
Aside from a long scratch on her back, she was fine, but somewhat shaky after that and never would sit under a tree for the rest of the trip.
