If you think you had an exciting Labor Day weekend, read her account below. And if you were somewhat down because you had a boring Labor Day, read her account -- and be thankful!
So we’re trying to enjoy a little time in the backyard with the kids, who are running here, there and everywhere. After a while, we hear the doorbell ringing inside. It is a neighbor, bringing home Ryan (age 10), who was stark naked in another neighbor’s front yard, playing in the sprinklers. (We never saw him leave.)
Then we cooked steaks for dinner, which went fine until the grand flame, which set off the smoke alarm and caused the fire truck to arrive with sirens blaring and lights flashing. (The kids loved it.)
What does that have to do with this picture? Nothing, of course. The picture is Ryan locked in a friend’s BMW, where he’s been for more than an hour. We were finally able to coach him to push the unlock button; unfortunately, it has now been disabled. (Darn fancy cars.) AAA is on the way, possibly to tow the BMW and Ryan, who is wearing no pants, to the dealership to activate the lock.
