One For The Books

Boy was today a doozy. It all began when I woke up at 7:30 am, made Scott breakfast, showered, threw on my swimsuit and headed off to Little Rock. Everyone was waiting on me to get there as quickly as possible so we could go to the lake.

We hop in the car and make the nearly hour long journey to Lake DeGray. We get to the dock, put our stuff in the boat, start getting excited when Kyle says "umm, did anyone grab the boat keys?" Hmmm....we somehow managed to leave that one important item behind. So Kyle called a friend to see if he would go to my parents house and get the boat key then meet Kyle halfway which he kindly obliged (true friend right there).
While Kyle did that Mom, Grammy, Landon and I had our own kittle redneck yacht club party and hopped in the water and floated in the marina. What? Other people do it. Seriously I've seen it.

An hour later Kyle made it back and we were finally able to take on the lake. We thoroughly enjoy ourself, do our normal thing, stay out until 6:00 and decide it's time to head in.

So we pull the boat in, grab our stuff, begin heading out and Kyle hands his car keys to my Grammy when whoopsie!! She drops them in the lake and straight down they go. Kyle jumped in after them thinking he could swim 25 feet down in murky water and find them--he did not.
I couldn't help but burst out laughing and the fact that Landon immediately said "oh no! We're going to have to get a new car now" sent me over the edge. Seriously? This really just happened?
My Dad was the one to save us this time but it was going to take him two hours before he could get there. So we hitched a random ride to Cracker Barrell so we could at least wait there.

This day was one for the books that's for sure but I think we learned two important lessons. Don't forget the boat key--and make sure you always bring the spare car key. Because you just never know what may happen!
