ten minutes of pandemonium
I rode Birdland for a minute yesterday. The jumps are pretty dialed right now. Trying to secure some clay for more building. My wife got home with the boys right after and I rolled up to help get them out of the car. A freak occurrence caused the doors to lock as they closed and Dylan was still inside. Spare keys? 15 miles away at the office. We stayed calm, but during this period of almost panic, Noah let this guy outside... He bolted, of course. I had to chase him around my van five times, but Noah stepped in and helped. Put the dog over the fence and back to the baby in the car problem. Gail is on the phone with a non helpful 911, but I had to get something going. I'm good at breaking into cars, but sometimes it takes an hour. We didn't have an hour. I decided to pull on the little side window, hoping the little lever deal would give way. Nope, the window exploded all over the car, the garage and me. Kids are screaming, broken glass everywhere. Just chaos. Did I mention that this car is three months old?
Everything is cool. The dog is licking the baby's face and all is well in the world. For now.
