Cotton Wood Beach and Our Car Key Drama!

It's hot in the Pacific Northwest ya'll. Last Sunday it was 96 degrees. Monday it was 102 degrees. The heat is killing me. I am over summer...

We thought we would beat the heat by heading to Washougal to wade in the Columbia River on Sunday. We packed up a lunch and headed to William Clark Park at Cotton Wood Beach. We had a blast wading in the cool river. Amari is my little guppy. He had so much fun playing in the water and showed no fear. A few years ago he would have avoided swimming in the river all together. It's amazing what a few years can do. Talan on the other hand was not feelin' the water. He threw the worlds biggest fits if you tried bringing him into the water. Little dude wouldn't even go ankles deep. He spent most of the time playing in the sand instead. He was content filling  his little bucket with wet sand and dumping it out over and over again. Talan is enjoys the simple things in life like filling a bucket with sand and watching big brother and mom have a splash war in the Columbia. 

Mid-morning and into the afternoon were wonderful at the lake...until my dear husband managed to drop the keys to our car while helping Amari put on his shoes. He realized it about a minute later and returned to get them only to find that someone picked them up and stole them! Thankfully our set of keys did not have our dealership logo on it. Our day went downhill after that. We ended up waiting outside in the heat for over three and a half hours. It was broudle! My pregnant self was extra crabby and my mood swings probably didn't help my poor stressed out hubby. The boys were great considering the heat and the situation that we were in. We ended up calling the locksmith and when he finally arrived it took him about an hour to get us into our car and to cut us a new key. We ended up dropping more money on that ordeal than we wanted to but at least it's a lesson learned right? It will never happen again. Ever. We ventured home and stopped off to get a cool treat to reward the boys for their good behavior and vowed to never go back to that part of the river again.
