Happy 4th

-- Sent from my Palm Pre
Run # 78 - 8.8 miles

You can't turn your back for a minute on my kids.  I should have known better.

After a wonderful "in the zone" run this morning and a yummy breakfast of made to order pancakes, hubbs was trying to finish a deck project that we started yesterday.  I left the breakfast for a minute to help.

Easily within that time LBM had moved a chair to the sink, turned on the water and pushed the faucet so that the quickly lowing water was spreading all over the counter tops headed to the coffee maker on one side and the microwave on the other! AAaAAYYYYYeeEEEE

I grab LBM and turn off the water, quickly unplugging appliances.  While I am distracted with that mess LBM proceeded to spray a bottle of foaming cleaner all over his head!

I need another vacation.  I think we should steer clear of any fireworks today.  Who knows what might happen!

Happy 4th everyone.  Stay safe.
