Where are our suits?

We decided to go swimming in Keokuk, Iowa.  It's  funny.  You drive for 18 hours to visit a new state, and what do the kids want to do?  Go swimming!  When I told the kids to go suit up for the pool, this is what I heard:  "Mom, I can't find my suit," Mom, I can't find my swimsuit anywhere," "Mom, can I swim in some regular shorts?"

Suddenly, I remembered where their swimsuits were; in the dryer in Lexington, Nebraska.  Thank goodness it was my fault.  I had left them there.  I was the one that was supposed to remember to get them out of the dryer and put them back in the suitcase.  I couldn't yell at anyone.  Instead, I loaded up all the kids in the car and headed to WalMart.  New suits all around.
