Because my parents live on the other side of the state, we like to meet halfway some weekends.
Today was one of those days. We went to Barnes and Noble to play with the train table and so that we could Skype with my brother, we went to dinner, and then we went to McDonald's to play for a while. After about 30 minutes of playing, I looked over to the shoe holder and noticed that Jayce's shoes weren't there. Turns out, someone stole them. From right in front of us! I could have understood if it had been a simple mistake: a kid walks over and accidentally puts on the wrong shoes and leaves his own behind. That was not the case. All of the other kids left while we were trying to locate Jayce's shoes. No luck. They are gone. I hope they went to some kid that didn't have any shoes. Otherwise, I might be really ticked.
We left McDonald's and went to Walmart to try to find Jayce a cheap replacement pair. On the way, Jayce made up this song, completely on his own!!
Ol' McDonald had a slide.
And on that slide he had a boy.
(I ask him what happened to that boy - but the first time he sung it he went straight through.)
The boy lost his brown shoes, the boy lost his brown shoes.
And we are going to get some new brown shoes!
We did go to the store, but we didn't get new brown shoes. I couldn't find some brown tennis shoes that could be passed off as somewhat dressy. However, they did have an awesome pair of Lightning and Mater shoes that Grandma generously bought for us! (I couldn't stand the thought of spending $15 on shoes!) Thanks for the new shoes, Grandma!!
