Strange things are afoot at the Hurst-Stewart home...






Our weekend was supposed to be filled with fun family activities and lots of relaxation...

Saturday we went to Liberty Park to see the Animal Planet Expo. That was a lot of fun, saw a lot of cool things. Then we walked around the pond, rode some rides, played in the fountain... oh, and found out that those dungeons and dragon guys who fight each other with sticks really do exist...WEIRD!!

Sunday was supposed to be a fabulous day of nothingness...until Justin barreled through the door crying because he had handcuffs stuck on his wrist. Of course our first thought was that these were toy handcuffs and easily removable... WRONG. We soon found out that these were bonafide real handcuffs that Justin and his friend TJ found at TJ's house. TJ claims he got them from his cousin and told Justin that they didn't have a key for it before Justin decided to try them on for size (good one Just). We live next door to a SLC police officer, but of course he was still at church. We decided to drive to the fire station for help. The firemen got a kick out of it but said they didn't have a key and had to call the police to come help. The police finally showed up at the fire station and also seemed to get a kick out of the hand cuff fiasco. After a couple of tries with different keys, Justin was free. I'm sure the policeman was thinking, "hmmmm... nice... wonder where he got these... hmmmm....".

Aren't weekends the BEST?!?!

Glad we both figured out we were neighbors, now that we've been neighbors for a year! We definitely need to get together for dinner sometime!
