If Life Gives You Lemons, Grab a Crowbar

Our neighbors, Marc and Ashley, had a car accident Sunday morning. It was a weird situation--their cars were parked and someone turned too wide and hit Marc's truck, which in turn, hit Ashley's car parked right behind it. No one was hurt, the driver was insured, and most of all, it's a big inconvenience for all.

Unless you're Hyrum or Micah.

Ashley came home from work yesterday and told the boys that the truck had been declared a total loss and would be hauled away this morning. In the meantime, they were free to take anything they wanted off the outside.

I don't think my boys have finished their homework faster than they did yesterday.

The excitement attracted many of the neighborhood kids, who couldn't believe what they were seeing--mallets and crowbars and screwdrivers and hammers and wire cutters destroying a real live car!

I had concerned moms text or stop by, asking if the destruction was approved. I don't think Marc and Ashley were expecting the boys to go as crazy as they did.

So many treasures.

And they even willingly cleaned up the mess.

  3. What a great day to be a little boy!

  4. Did this happen right outside the gate on 23rd? If so that is a dangerous spot. Much vandalism happened to our car parked there.
