Black Friday Kevin and his dad woke up pretty early and went to Navosota to hunt quail. They had a great time and came home with I believe 24 birds! I got up early and went to Target to check out their black Friday sales. I got there about 7:30. I wasn't one of the crazies who went in middle of night this year. I was expecting it to be packed and crazy, but it wasn't at all. The parking lot wasn't that full. The store didn't seem that crowded. It was like a normal day at Target, but with lots of sales. I talked to some workers and they said it was a total mad house from when they opened at midnight to about 3 that morning, and then it settled down. Guess when I got there everyone was crashed out. I have been done with all my shopping for little while now, but I just wanted to see if there was anything worth getting. I ended up with a pair of pj pants for me that has quickly become my all time favorite pair of pj pants. They are warm and fuzzy and the most comfortable things ever! And they were on sale for $10. I might just wear them everyday. I also scored Dane a pair of pjs for $5, a couple tshirts for $1.50 each, the blind side movie for $3, and a toy on sale from $35 to a whopping price of $12. Can't beat that.
Once I got home Jackie, Dane and I went over to DewBerry Farm to hang out. We had gone last year and Dane really enjoyed himself. They have so much to do and Dane had such a great time. Things were going well, Dane was having a blast doing all the things DewBerry offers, we were enjoying the beautiful weather. We had been there a couple hours when Dane was riding a pedal cart around the track when I noticed he had the look that he needed to go to the bathroom. We promised him we would come back to the pedal carts after going to the bathroom. He wasn't wanting to leave, and had to be coaxed into taking a bathroom break. We had to walk across the farm to get to the bathroom, and everything was going as planned until he came out of the stall and I just happened to look down and see that he only had one shoe on.
And then the search began. A 45 minute search to be exact. Baffled would be a good word to describe us. When asked he would say the shoe came off when I picked him up to reach the water faucet to wash his hands. But, the shoe was no where to be found. There is no way we wouldn't have seen the shoe fall off while I had him lifted in the air. We looked in the stall, around the sink, on the porch of the bathroom, under the porch, in the bushes. I made a zipline the exact way we came to the bathroom back to where we were. No where. I looked all around the track, in the pedal carts, in the train, around the benches, I asked the lady taking tokens, I asked people watching their kids on the carts. The shoe was gone. Vanished. The weirdest thing ever! Came back to Jackie and Dane to tell the news. Jackie then went and looked herself since 4 eyes are better than 2. Nothing. We went to lost and found. I looked back on my camera and he had his shoes on in every picture except when we took them off for the bouncy pillows. The bouncy pillows was one of the 1st things we did. And I took a ton of pictures!! Shoes were on when he was riding the pedal carts. I got him off and we went straight to the bathroom, and then his shoe magically disappears. Like what the heck??? Y'all it's the weirdest thing. And Dane is SOOOO chatty normally. He will tell you if something isn't right. If his shoes feel weird, his car seat comes unlatched, hands are dirty etc etc. But, he said nothing. Never told us he had lost a shoe. Not until I would ask him when did his shoe come off. And he would reply when he was washing his hands. But, where the heck did it go??????? PURE CRAZINESS!!
So, while Jackie and I took turns looking for the shoe we let Dane play in the hay and swing around. Then we had to call it a day. Not much you can do with only one shoe.
When we got back home I had to go buy him another pair of tennis shoes.
Thanks Black Friday for coming through on this one... got his new shoes for $10!!! Major score!
