And Then We Walked Home

In the last post I said that we had had a pretty exciting week,
but now I'm beginning to realize that we have a pretty exciting life!

Here's the story...
Sunday night we went to a park to play tennis and hang out.
We had a great time!
I took a lot of pictures,
we played,
we ate dinner,
and we had fun.

Yep, that's Mom!  Isn't she beautiful?
Whitey came too!
After a little while of playing tennis, we walked over to the play ground.
Bethany and Kaden played, and then Bethany began holding her thumb.
This has happened 3 times now,
the first time at the beach,
the second time 2 weeks ago,
this Sunday,
and yesterday.
She bends her thumb and then can't - or wont - unbend it, saying that it hurts.
She kept saying she "wanted to go to the dentist".
As sorry as we were for her, we got a good laugh out of her dentist/doctor mix up.
we decided that Mom should take Bethany home,
and so she left.

crocs and socks. Gotta love it!
Brandon and Dad played for about 10 minutes and then we decided to head home too.
But the keys... where were they?
After a while we figured out that they  were in the trunk of the car.
that Mom just drove home.
Dad borrowed a phone, (his was in the locked car) and called mom, but got no answer.
The kids (me included!) were excited, what an adventure to walk home!
Dad not so much, but he was willing to and we didn't have much of another choice.
So we walked home!
We took this right before leaving, to WALK home!

Thankfully, we knew a way home that would keep us off the busy streets, and we were only about 1.5 miles away from our house.
As strange as it sounds, we had fun!

What about you all?
Do you have any "lost the keys" stories?

Sounds like something that could happen to any one of us...I learned a long time ago that we don't have control and sometimes, life gets in the way of our little world as we would like it to be! Love you lots.... Gandy
