Counting our blessings. 🙏🏽 Our car was stolen today!! 😫😰 Here’s the story... Today for our Family Day we decided to go watch the LEGO Movie 2 at the movie theatre... the boys loved it! Afterwards we stopped at a little shop to pick up some sandals and Quinn took them to the car, put them in the trunk while we ran into whole foods to grab a few things. Quinn joined us a few minutes later around 4pm. We left Wholefoods at approximately 4:22pm to walk back to our car to notice our car was no longer where we parked it. Someone had stolen it! I just couldn’t believe it. Here we were stranded in the parking lot with our bag of groceries, and the kids. Gianni had fallen asleep on Quinn and both of our cell phone batteries were almost dead. 🙄
My first thought was to call our friend for a ride before our battery died. We don’t know any numbers by heart. Yikes haha So we did that and then almost immediately after that I flagged down the security guard who was driving his cart around to tell him that our car was stolen. They helped us call the police to make a police report and off they went to try and find it.
We decided to go back to Whole Foods to have dinner before we called our friend back to pick us up. I ran inside to grab us some food while Quinn waited at a table outside. During that time, Security ended up coming up to him to let him know that they found our car with the trunk wide open around the corner in the parking lot behind a shipping container!! They had ransacked the car and stole some of our personal belongings and the stereo. The police officer came back, took some prints, and then we got our car back. Yay! This was SO crazy tho! A first for us! It definitely didn’t feel good to be stolen from, but thankful we are all safe and sound and we got our car back. 🚘🙌🏽❤️🎉 P.S. These jars we call them blessing jars and the boys went around everywhere to fill it up with things that remind them of the blessings in their life. Loved hearing them share.
