How?

The day after Christmas Megan, Josh, Hannah, Joe and I went out to the Soden's (a family in our ward) farm. Our ward was doing a service project out there and a potluck afterwards. It was such a warm day....60 degrees....all the snow melted and you just can't imagine all the wonderful mud there was there.....anyway....that's beside point! We had a good time helping make wooden toys...they were also quilting, but we didn't do any of the helping with that....again I get off the point! So, after being there for several hours we drove home....when I got out of the car and into the house I heard Josh yelling that he needed some scissors...I go out to to the van to find this..............
After trying and trying to get that off...how did he do that???.....we picked him up and sat him on the arm rest next to the seat and then folded the seat down so we could get to the bolt in the floor that held the seat belt in. Josh could not find Aaron's socket wrench and there was NO WAY I was going to cut off the seat belt unless it was cutting off his airway, which it wasn't.....so I texted a picture to Aaron and he came home from work and unbolted the seatbelt and Joe was a free man......what were Joseph's first words to Aaron when he got into the back in the van to save him???? "Dad!!! We had chocolate cake for dessert!!!" At least he knows what's really important!

Oh my goodness! How in the heck did that happen? You are obviously asking yourself the same question. I'm happy to see you got it off, and without cutting your seat belt.
Have a safe and Happy New Year!

It's amazing what they can get themselves into, isn't it? At least you kept a cool head and didn't cut it right away, that's what I probably would've done.

Oh my gosh, that is too dang funny!!! Your posts make me laugh so hard!

Thankfully it wasn't cutting off his airway!

k, Nik did this once when he was small. But it wasn't funny. Everytime I'd been hitting the break the belt had been tightening. He was turning blue when I saw him. I pulled over so fast, unbuckled him and barely got it off. I think I hurt him taking it off. Scary momment.

I totally love the look on his face in the first picture! What a great captured moment!

Thank heavens the Schafer brothers are pretty handy when it comes to problem solving.

I'm glad that Joey is okay.

I would love to know how on earth he did this!?!?!?! We may never know.
