Can you believe this!?!?

Who would of thought that the day I choose to blog about my new van, this happened...


No...thankfully we were not in an accident, but we did have a little incident yesterday afternoon.

We hang a tennis ball from the ceiling of the garage as a way of knowing where to stop when we are pulling the car into the garage. Since the van is a little bit longer than my Jeep, we needed to move the tennis ball to accommodate the van. Yesterday afternoon, Shane climbed onto the roof of my car in order to move the string. He sat down and placed the ball in the new spot. He then slid down the windshield to in order to hop off the car. Well, as you can see his... um....... rear end cracked the windshield. Thankfully he wasn't hurt!!!! The only thing hurting is our pocketbook because now we have to pay to replace the entire windshield!!!
Can you believe it!?!?!?

Oh my goodness!! I CAN'T believe that!

I guess you can say you've officially been rear-ended. Sorry, I couldn't help it :)

Hope it gets repaired soon!

Mandy said...

OH NO!!!! I can't believe that happen... Hope it gets fixed soon. At least no one got hurt!

Rachel said...

Ouch! You got rear-ended! LOL! I hate that that happened the first day!

By the way....safelite auto glass is relatively cheap. Ask them if they have any "specials." I got my new windshield for 250.00

Oh my goodness! Thankfully your husband wasn't hurt and of course it happens right after you told everyone about your new mini van!Btw, I've been following your blog for awhile now and I want to tell you are so blessed to have such beautiful, healthy kids:o)
God Bless to you and your family:o)
P.S. Sophia has such the cutest smile ever; she is so adorable and I loved the photo of her in pigtails! I have 2 boys, 12 yrs. and 10 yrs. so there are no pigtails in our home except I do have 2 Westies (1 male, 1 female) and I guess I could put a bow in my Westie girl's hair!!
Take care!

Just happened onto your blog the other day. I've enjoyed reading about your cute little crew!

That's terrible about your windshield! Thankfully it is an easy (although not cheap) fix! Glad that you are enjoying your new ride!

Mary Ann said...

Oh No! Won't your insurance pay for it? My hubby just had to have his replaced and it didn't cost him a thing. I guess we have glass coverage.

Melanie said...

Oh no Jenny! But I can't help but giggle at the rear-ended comments, too funny! Though I imagine Shane didn't find the situation to be very amusing! Poor guy!
BTW, we use one of the ball thingies, too!

MOMSWEB said...

Oh my goodness...thank God he's okay, but I have to admit that the whole scenario is funny to read.

Faith said...

Oh my word, that is CRAZY! So sorry!

Brittany and Charlie said...

Oh dear, total bummer. At least everyone is ok!

Jessica K. said...

Oh no, that sucks. I hope you guys can get it repaired quick and I hope it wont be too expensive! I am just glad it wasnt an accident!!

Rachel said...

Holy Cow...I can NOT believe his toosh did that. I am shocked that a window would not be strong enought to hold a body.

Wow....SO SOOOOOO sorry that this happen to your new van.

Terri said...

I am so sorry, but glad everyone is ok! I guess cars aren't meant to be slides.... Bless you guys!!

Amy said...

So not funny but I def. had a little laugh because zi could see my husband doing that and then being sooo mad at himself...Poor hubby but at least he's a-ok and the van will be too!

Gotz Family said...

Did you laugh before you cried or cry before you laughed

Bethany said...

Oh no! Never a dull moment at your house!

Kelly said...

Oh no! good thing he is ok.

Celia Jimenez said...

This is so typical of you guys and the cars!!! Remember when we went up to Northlake??? First the tires...then the windshield??? Maybe its just an initiation thing!!!

Jennifer said...

It's new and they will replace it free of charge under the warranty through Toyota..I'm sure of it. call Toyota and tell then what happen....a man sitting on the windshield shouldn't have caused this...glass is strong!

Oh goodness! So glad Shane is okay -- but I have to say it made me laugh a little. =)

Bethany said...

OH my gosh! And right after I congratulated you on the new van, too. Yikes...well at least it's a good story to tell. I hope it's not too terribly expensive to replace!
