Oops might've underestimated the depth a lil'.
Her boys ever so encouraging, were yelling "WE'RE STUCK! YOU'D BETTER GO GET DADDY CUZ THERE'S NOOOOOO WAY YOU'RE GETTING US OUT OF HERE. EWWWWW AND LOOK AT HOW DEEP THE MUD IS." The PP thanked her boys for pointing these things out to her as she had not realized that a) they were stuck and b) the mud was 6 inches deep. Phew....she was so glad she had them with her or she never would've known. After assessing the situation and making many failed attempts at getting "unstuck" and even at trying to figure out the wench system she decided she had to bite the bullet. That meant taking a long, uphill journey ON FOOT, covered in mud to notify her prince, GI Joe of her current dilemma. GI Joe was very busy shampooing the bedroom carpet so she hated to bother him, mainly because she wanted him to finish the carpet and also because she didn't want him to have more stories to tell their friends on Wing Nights. But she realized she had to do what she had to do.
After doing a little equine bonding the 4 of them once again loaded up on the 4 wheeler for the trip home. As they neared the creek GI Joe told them all to get off as he didn't want to chance getting stuck again. Miraculously, the sons made it up the hill and out of the mud with no problems. However, when the Prairie Princess attempted the climb she stepped in a mud hole and lost her shoe (which was actually one of GI Joe's sandals because they just happened to be by the door when she left earlier and were much more practical than the heels she had worn all day). The mud was like quick sand so there was a lot of suction and pressure and she could not get it out. Meanwhile, she was trying to keep from falling on her face and from dropping her camera and balance is not one of her strong suits. She received all kinds of support and encouragement from the Peanut Gallery, I mean her husband and sons as they laughed profusely at her. Eventually, GI Joe took the camera from her. That was a huge help because then she could use her hand to dig in the mud to get his shoe out. Obviously, she was thrilled to do this as she totally enjoys mud where gross things like snakes and bugs might exist. The only downfall of GI Joe taking the camera from the PP was that he took a most horrendous picture of her struggling in the mud, where she bears a striking resemblance to Wynonna Judd as the camera must've added 40 pounds,which you will NEVER see. Finally, she persevered and freed herself from the mud and they all made their way home to be sprayed off by the hose and use an entire bottle of SHOUT on their clothing.
