The Night We'll Never Forget......



We've been freinds with our neighbors grandchildren since we were knee high to a grasshopper, so we were thrilled when they came to stay at our neighbors for a few days. They're all around our age, and very musical, so we decided to put on a mini-concert at our house for the other family members. We did a piano duet, our friend Hannah Lamont played harp, and her two brothers and a friend Nathan that they brought along did a bagpipe trio. Anyway, after the concert we got to talking about the Canfield Detective Agency and the times we've been followed, until we had them convinced we lead dangourous lives. Later that evening their mom took the boys to their other grandma's house to take out the trash, while we got our mom to take us spying in the park. We four girls sleuthed around, keeping a sharp look-out on anyone walking through. After a while we noticed two figures hanging on the statue.....A few minutes later we decided to head towards our mom.
Just then two dark figures leaped out from behind a tree and attacked a guy and a girl who were heading toward the statue.... Then I realized that it wasn't a guy and a girl at all, but two guys, with one in a skirt. Quite alarmed, our friend exclained,"We should go to your mom." Unsure of what to do, we paused - thats when they all headed towards us. Things started happening soooo fast.....one guy yelled,"GET 'EM!" and the chase was on, with us heading towards safety. A tall guy pulled ahead and leaped on our friend, knocking her to the ground. Just as he passed Elizabeth, she realized who it was.......................................................................................
It was Ian, Jacod, Nathan and Mrs. Lamont playing a JOKE on us. A JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Imagine, all that fright for a joke! They thought it was hilarious, and quite frankly, so did we!!!!!!!! That was the best practical joke anyone has ever played on us!

You girls lead quite the interestingly active lives!! I'm amazed your mom keeps up with you! Who knows, she might be the "behind the scenes person" for all your escapades!!(?) Keep enjoying life - you'll have lots of fantastic memories to share with your kids when you have them! (But just make sure that's not for another 25 years!!!)
