Things were going quite well until we reached the 19th century. As we were hiking by the blacksmith shop, the strangest thing happened. My hiking boots somehow tied themselves together IN A KNOT and I fell flat. I scraped up both hands and a knee.
How is it even possible for two boots to tie themselves together? We'd been hiking already for a stretch and everything had been fine up to this point.
The boys are convinced now that Explore Park is haunted. Or perhaps just has a few fairies - Pierce read in his Ripley's Believe it or Not book that fairies like to mess with shoes.
Readers, have you ever heard of shoelaces that tie themselves together? Or mischievous blacksmith ghosts?
