Flat Tires, Movies, & Popcorn

Yesterday, after homeschool, the girls and I loaded into the car to go to the library. But as I was backing up I noticed my "check tires" light was on. Mmmkay, let's have a look. Sure enough, one of my tires was flat. Flatter than flat. There was no way we were going anywhere. Wish I could say I know how to change a tire, but sadly, I do not. Since Jeremy was at work, I called my dad, he put the spare on, and away I went to Les Schwab to have my poor flatty flat flat, flat-as-a-pancake tire fixed.

The girls were less than thrilled about the pit stop.

Until we settled in for the wait and they noticed . . .

POPCORN.

A little movie on the iPhone . . .

A bag o' popcorn . . .

And some sisterly love . . .

. . . can turn any day around!

I have got to get me an IPhone. Your flat tire sounds much more enjoyable then mine the other day.

Cuties!!! Kam's hair is SO long :)
Glad you were able to get it fixed. I think any outing can be an adventure with the right attitude :D

I hate getting flat tires. I have learned how to air mine up at home because somehow I always find that stray nail in the middle of the road! I love when places like that have snacks. The dealership that I bought my car from has a big popcorn machine...makes waiting with kiddos alot easier!

Awww, man! That stinks but way to turn lemons into lemonade ;) Yay for your dad, too! I love the sisterly love - so sweet!

Bonus on the popcorn! It was meant to be, you all got some great bonding time at a random place. Phones are so handy these days.

I'm pretty sure Les Schwab stole my business plan. I love popcorn and I'm pretty sure it completes me. Did you know it's National Popcorn Month? Oh yes it is and what a beautiful thing.

I wonder if there is a National Coffee Month...?

I don't know how to change a flat either... I'm privately happy about that - I put it in with the don't know how to mow the lawn category.

I am so glad you all found some good even with a flat. Those smiles are worth a million bucks.
I hope you have a great weekend!
