A year or so ago Shane came with me to the Haven blog conference in Atlanta. My mom stayed with the kids. One night I got a call from my mom saying that they had locked themselves out and could not get in the house. It was past my kids’ bedtime and it was pouring rain. They had tried to go through a window but they were all locked and since it was so wet the kids were slipping (our windows are high off the ground). The kids had used the spare key earlier that week and forgot to put it back in our secret hiding place. We live in a small town and it was after hours so who knows if a locksmith could have been found and if he would have come. They had run out of options, were soaking wet and cold, and wondered what to do. I told them to go ahead and kick the door down. My boys may or may not have been a little too excited to do it.
We lived with a huge crack in our door frame for a long time. It wasn’t until that next summer that we replaced the door frame and the door but we still had the old dead bold that required a key. Shane and I had talked about getting a deadbolt that opened with a code so that our boys (and grandma) would always be able to get in no matter what but it kept getting shoved to the back of our minds because of all the other big projects we have been doing. When Schlage™ emailed me about their new lock system that not only had a key pad but also worked with your iphone I was SUPER excited to try it out!
It was really easy to install and it has gotten a lot of use since the boys think it is their new toy. I have to admit it is pretty fun to use.
This pup cracks me up! Ever since he was new to our home if I wanted to take his picture I would bribe him with a treat and tell him to sit so he would hold still. Now when I pull out the camera he automatically sits in front of it and patiently waits for his treat :) I didn’t intend to include him in this shoot but he did such a good job of sitting (and he is pretty darn cute) so I figured why not?
There are different styles but I chose the Camelot in satin nickel.
