cigarette+car=BOOOOOOM!

What happens when you leave a burning cigarette in your truck?
At about 4:30 we saw a fire truck drive by with it's lights on. I looked out the front window and was suprised to see a huge ball of fire down the street. By the time we got bundled up and I grabbed my camera the firefighters had already done their job. That is why this photo shows none of the flame. Tracy and Everett were so excited to see the big trucks I joined the nosey neighbor club out on the street. The firemen were so nice and gave all of the kids junior firefighter badges. I am grateful nobody was hurt and that we live between two fire hydrants. I am also grateful we live so darn close to the fire department. Even if they do come to our house on the 4th of July to bust us for illegal fireworks. Nice work gentlemen.

I was sad to miss the other night too, I heard the food was the best ever! I definately want people to email their recipes out.
Let's keep our fingers crossed for the next two games for the Utes!

Sweet - the only excitement we ever get is when our neighbor's stupid alarm goes off - usually when they are in Hawaii or Mexico, far enough away that no one is there to turn it off. I bet the kids loved the fire trucks!
