What a Day

Today was great, Daniel got home from work and I didn't want to stay indoors today. Go out and we find the weather is amazing!! Best weather all Summer!! It was like only 80 degrees out early in the morning when it's usually already in the 90's....
We get into the lovely little Nissan, one of the extra cars Daniel got working about a month ago that has been running just perfect since. At first we just drove around in the lovely car until Costco opened. We ended up at wally world in Hurricane, UT. It started to rain when we got there, so we bought the little Nissan new windshield wipers because these ones sucked. We headed our way to Costco then and the drive there was just as nice =>
We bought a few things we needed from Costco and we started our way back home because we were super hungry!!
On the way home, on skyline drive, the car gave a real sweet smell and then just stopped working. We cruised in neutral until we finally pulled off. By that time the car decided it wanted to poof out lots of white smoke. So, we figured it was a head gasket. Just great, but it was still a beautiful day.
Then it was just waiting for his brother to come get us....
#219 What a Day

It wasn't long until we had our groceries at home and his brother had left. We were so hungry, but we had to get into my little Saturn and hurry to the bank to get money out because Daniel's cards are cancelled thanks to the Pole Position wallet adventure.....we get back, eat and head on our way to his parent's house.
There we call to find a dolly, anywhere and there was only one place that had one that was open. We gather minions to help with the push and we headed out.
THEN of course the guy there had to take a whole flippin' HOUR to get us in the system. It only took two guys and three computers, umm yea. In the end of that, they wouldn't even give us the dolly because they didn't want us putting a rear-wheel drive car on it. Though, we thought we could put it on backwards. Nope, they give us the full on auto carrier and well that only makes putting the car on that much harder!! Yay, what a beautiful day.
We all finally get to the car, which is parked on awesome gravel! and on a hill(not in our favor)....let's just say we only tried a few times before two guys left to get come alongs to help us out. Three of us waited as they did so and the sun decided to come out....awesome day =>
 They get back, I get in the car, they push it as far as they could, hook up the come along and then cranked it up about 1/4 of the way..then a little push and pull to get it over a bump on the ramp....then they added a second come along and pulled it up most of the way. At about half way, the guys pushed it up the rest of the way in two stops. Finally that was done with and we were on our way.
Get to the house of cars, er I mean his parent's house and we have to now push the 3000GT out and into the garage and then push the Nissan 300zx onto the driveway....guess what?? it decides to poor raining down, hard!! hehe Super FUN!! Actually, it was. The concrete was much better than gravel and I preferred the rain to the sun =>
Just AWESOME, right??
Get home super quick and it's definitely bed time for the two of us, but especially Daniel.....who had to work that night.
