Rentals, Rain, and Robbery

WHAT A WEEKEND! Friday started out wonderfully with the in-laws bringing a second rental U-Haul up to help get the rest of our items from the apartment. Mama had purposed in her heart that they would not be leaving the apartment until everything was out of it. By the end of the day, I think her heart was wishing it had kept its mouth shut, because it took from 9:00 in the morning until 11:00 at night to get everything out and unloaded at our new house. We are SO grateful for their help though! Now, I just have to purpose in MY heart to attack the garage this week.
Next, I had a lovely morning on Saturday with Elliot as we painted a pot for the garden and some wood for a project that I'm working on. Then Ev unpacked some boxes and we headed down to Noblesville for The Beatles Tribute at Symphony on the Prairie. We had a yummy dinner at the Gilmore's and Mimi was there too, whom we were delighted to see. Then we headed out, it sprinkled and spat rain, we listened to the first half of the concert and Elliot and I danced. :) Then it started spitting quite a bit more rain so we decided to leave.
We spent the night in Noblesville and awoke from a great night's sleep anticipating a tasty, organic brunch at Traders Point Creamery. I went to put the baby bag in our car and noticed something was a little different. Where our GPS/Stereo unit had been there were a bunch of cut up wires sticking every which seriously took my brain way to long to figure out that we had been ROBBED!!! We got robbed! It was crazy.
So we filed a police report and signed up for this identity theft insurance called LifeLock later that day to make us feel a little safer. We decided to continue to our brunch which was SO fun. Elliot got to pet some cows and see chickens and the brunch was definitely delicious.
Then we gathered things up to head out and pick up our new dryer (because the other one that we got a few weeks ago isn't working), and to get Elliot a new pair of shoes (because the other ones that we got a few weeks ago don't fit anymore). We found a great sale at The Childrens Place, got a couple pairs of shoes and came home to hook up the dryer.
We went to Ivanhoes and then came home, where Evan dropped Elliot and I off so he could head out to pick up a couple items for the new dryer.....He then came in about five minutes later with THE look on his face. Ev doesn't get this look often, but when he does you know he's had it. Our car ignition was suddenly not working.
Yep! C'est la vie!
There is a season for everything! Beautiful brunches, loving family, juvenile robberies, and raining concerts. I am convinced that I would not want to venture through any of these seasons without my loving groom by my side.
And at times like this we both just echo the epicly wise Carrie Underwood and say, "Jesus Take the Wheel!"

You were robbed?! He's already grown out of those shoes?! The Benz broke?!

I love how you guys take everything in stride. At most it's been 15 minutes of "What? Oh my goodness! *whine*," if that. I love you guys.

Wow, I'm so sorry. Let us know if there is anything we can do.
