{Advent} Top Ten: Tree Hunting Photos & a Funny Story

This farm has been a family favorite for many years.  One of the great things about having a big family is that’s it’s a party wherever you go.  We’re just destined to make memories – some we’ll laugh about and some not 🙂

I hope you enjoy these 10-takes (plus a bonus!) as much as Scott and I did taking them.  Scroll to the bottom for your funny story.

Ok, on to your funny story.  When we arrived, it was a little chilly and windy, plus we knew we were going to do some walking.  So, we bundled Luke up and put him in the stroller.  Once the hunt for the tree got serious, the stroller became a pain in the a$$, so I parked it and plunked Luke on my hip.  Just as I was going back to the stroller, I hear “Hayride’s leaving!” and beelined to the tractor so we wouldn’t miss it.  Didn’t give the stroller another thought.
Until LAST NIGHT.  Scott was cleaning out the van and asked where it was.  My mind did a quick fast forward and we both looked at each other in horror.  Not only did we leave the stroller in Salado, but we left Luke’s favorite blanket there, too!  Thankfully, after a quick call, the farm still has them both.  Wow.  That’s pretty much the worst case of mommy brain there is.  I mean, how does one space the absence of  a stroller for a good NINE days??  On the up side, at least it wasn’t a kid we left behind 🙂

    Hi friend – that is a funny story! You know… I did something similar once. I piled up our three – then ages 4, 3 and 1 I think…to get their photos taken at the mall. Afterwards I loaded them up, drove off and met my mom for lunch. Uh… I realized I'd left my very nice Peg Perego stroller behind in the parking lot – of Castleton Square Mall! I panicked a bit – called JC Penneys – and drove in rush hour traffic back to get it… So yes, I have mommy brain, too. And so far we only have three kiddos. Hope someday to at least catch up to you! 🙂
