Last week, Kirk, Zoe, and I, had quite the crazy experience.  We had to get a few things done while Robby was in school.  We were about an hour away from home, driving down the freeway; Zoe was asleep in the backseat.  All of the sudden, we heard a weird shattering noise.  I looked over, and the driver's side side window on the car had completely shattered.  Kirk was covered in glass and wind was whipping in through the window.  Kirk quickly pulled over do assess the damage.  We were all okay (and very thankful for safety glass), but absolutely clueless about what happened.  We have no idea why the glass shattered.  We think that either somehow a rock flipped up and hit it or else there was a weak spot in the glass and we hit a bump just right.  It all ended up okay.  We drove the car to the nearest glass repair place.  They had to order the glass in, but it only took a couple of hours to get there and another hour to install.  The biggest problem was that we were not in a great neighborhood to just hang out in.  There was nothing there to do.  Three hours with nothing to do, especially with a 6 month old is not exactly fun.  We ended up wandering around Macey's for a while and then eating an early dinner at TGIFridays.  Luckily, we have glass coverage with our car insurance so we didn't have to pay anything.

Of course, that happened to be the day that I didn't have my camera with me, but I did snap a couple of pictures with my cell phone.

Our poor car without any glass.

This was what Kirk's seat looked like when he got out of the car.  There was glass everywhere.

So anyway, our couple hour trip to run some errands turned into an eight hour nightmare.  We still managed to have fun just hanging out together though and we can definitely laugh at it now.  How random.

  1. Odd! Glad that everyone is okay. Gavin is only upset that he's no longer working for Ford so that he can have bragging rights.
