Have you ever had a day that you thought would never end? and then years later you love the memory of that day?
I was just remembering one of those days we had a couple of years ago ....
It was summer and the girls in our family were in one car - leaving everyone but the baby behind. Driving the 4 hours or so to our destination, we ended up with a flat tire. No biggie, except this was the 5th tire in just a 2-month period! The silver lining: our previous flats were with girls only, so we all knew what we were doing. One of the bad things about getting a flat while traveling is all the unpacking that has to be done just to get the spare out.
So we got all the way down to our destination, went to go in the apartment (it was late and dark and we were tired!) and the door was locked. My son & his family were still up 4 hours north with the key. So we made human ladders up to the 2nd floor windows to try to break in. No luck. But a few laughs. Finally, with the key on its 4 hour drive to us, we stopped in at an all-night Denny's and ordered endless hot chocolate.
At the time, none of it seemed very fun. But now - it's a happy memory!
