So, we got our new dining room table on Friday. Holly started freaking out and barking when the delivery guys got here, so I put her in the laundry room with her food, water and bed. After they all left, I let Holly outside in the backyard. Owen and I were playing Mario Kart on Wii and Holly started scratching on the door to get back inside. I got up to let her in. She was still freaked out by the delivery people, so she wouldn't come inside. I started calling her and trying to get her inside. I walked outside for a second to go get her and Owen came running out behind me. The wind blew and the door slammed shut. So there we were, locked outside with no shoes, no phone, nothing but the remote control to the wii that I was still holding.
I carried Owen around to the front of the house and we went and got the mail. I kept saying to Owen, "don't step on the caterpillars," since our driveway and porch are completely overrun by dead and live caterpillars. We walked around for a little bit and Owen played in the dirt/sand at the end of our driveway. I kept hearing the phone ring and figured that Austin would probably get a little concerned if he couldn't reach me. It was really hot and Owen kept wanting to go inside and get sidewalk chalk or other toys to play with, but I kept telling him that we couldn't get anything from inside. I asked if he wanted to walk down to the neighbors' house and he said, "yes." We walked down the driveway, but the street was scorching hot, so I had to carry Owen down to the neighbors' driveway. They were really nice and pulled some toys out for Owen to play with while I called Austin. Austin had just stopped by to see if we were home, so he was totally freaked out that we weren't home and the lights were on and the wii was still on, etc. He drove down to pick us up so we wouldn't have to walk back, but it made for a very interesting afternoon.
