Saturday was a nice day and we took Cade and Gracie and some friends to our church gym to shoot hoops. Asa had no desire to play inside so we headed outside to the parking lot. He loved riding his car down the slope and eventually found the water puddle at the bottom of the slope. I never realized it but he's never played in a water puddle before. He had a blast and I let him get his shoes and braces soaked!
At some point Cade came out and played a while. A few minutes later he said "hey, where'd Asa go"? We had been talking and didn't even notice that Asa was gone. But where did he go? It's an open area with no corners he could hide around. And we are in the boonies, in an empty parking lot. He was just gone! I was wondering if the rapture had come! The only place he could have gone was.....down in a deep drainage ditch!! Y'all my heart stopped until I looked over the edge!
Asa was perfectly happy! He never screamed or cried. Apparently he just feel in and started playing in the leaves! Thank goodness for leaves or he'd been in water and mud!
Cade jumped in to help him out but Asa would push our hands out of the way and grab more leaves! He finally sat up but still didn't want to get out. He also enjoyed his warm bath at home after we finally got him out!
Here's a video if you've got 4 minutes to waste!
