Expensive July 4th weekend

When we went to KC for my family reunion we had to take two cars. Shaun, Jenny, Alexander, Isaiah, Keith, Amy, Ron, and I wouldn't fit in one vehicle even without taking two car seats, a stroller, a playpen, an electric scooter (which rode on the new scooter hitch), folding chairs, a cooler, and food. Ron wanted to take his left shoe with his orthotic (1/2 foot) in it. I wasn't too keen on it but I didn't argue.

Do I ever wish I had! The shoe didn't make it home. So, after spending $200 on gas, whatever I spent on food, tolls, park fee, etc., we had to replace the shoe and "foot."

The total was $604 and some change. Insurance does not cover "orthotics" regardless of what they're for. That absolutely sucks!
