Car Troubles

Two weeks ago, the battery completely died in my car so we had to buy a new one then we had more trouble on Saturday. David and I were driving to Walmart for some groceries and all of a sudden the a/c stopped working. David looked at the dashboard and noticed the battery and check engine lights were on. We were in the left turn lane and the arrow turned green so he executed the turn but with difficulty because the power steering was out! At this point we were trying to make it to a place where we could stop but all of a sudden what appears to be smoke is coming from the hood. We pull into the parking lot at Sam's and get out. Luckily, it was just steam. The serpentine belt had broken and knocked the coolant reservoir off. David, his dad and our brother-in-law worked on the car Sunday while I was at home getting myself, Trey and Ty ready to go to Holiday World. We had been invited by our neighbors and were really looking forward to a fun trip. We never made it. After many set backs the car was finally fixed...at 2:58 pm. It took nearly 5 hours and a trip to Boonville! I'm very sad that we didn't get to go to Holiday World but I'm happy to have a running vehicle! Hopefully we won't have another incident two weeks from now! At any rate, here are some pictures from the weekend.
