We had a fairly quiet week last week.
That was not the way this week started.
About 12:30, we heard the smoke detector go off. I got up and tried to use a button to silence it. After a couple of attempts, it also started saying that there was carbon monoxide. After double checking the house, I went outside and took a look to make sure nothing was going on.
I called the fire department, and they came out.
We got everyone out and hid out in the van. Reid was excited, as he is enthralled by fire trucks.
There was no carbon monoxide and no smoke.
In the morning, we saw a dump truck in front of the house. A few minutes later, another truck showed up. A backhoe showed up a couple of minutes later.
What do little boys like more than fire trucks? Construction equipment!! And in action!!
They dug out a couple of sidewalk slabs to be replaced.
After they were done, the worker asked if we would like his picture taken in the truck. How could we resist?
It made his week.
And kudos to the city worker for going out his way to entertain a child .
We got Reid up for the show.
Hopefully our week is a bit more quiet after all of this excitement.
