Sunday after Church Syd and L.J. (Little Jessie) decided they wanted to go swimming and lay out.  Well that lasted all of about 5 minutes when they jumped in the pool and found it freezing.  Logan had to drain some of the water out and add fresh and with the recent rains, it was not as warm as it had been. 

Now what are two 14 year old girls to do?  They decided to go ride the 4-wheeler in the neighborhood next door that Logan is helping develop.  So off they went.  I was in my new craft room, being crafty. (here is a sneak peek at something I will be talking about later)...


When I get this phone call...


Syd:    Mom, we stopped the four wheeler to look at something, and now it wont start

Me:     Does it have gas?

Syd:    Yes

Me:     Did you check the choke thing?  (I know nothing about this kind of stuff, but I have heard Logan ask this before)

Syd:    Umm, Yeah

Me:     Well I guess ya'll need to get to pushing

Syd:    Uh! OK


Now I am not as mean as you think I am.  I was not about to let them push that four wheeler on the road alone.  So I went and drove behind them with my hazard lights on.  This is what I saw when I got there.


Bless their little hearts :)



So they get started pushing....



And pushing....


Until we finally get to our road. Notice how they just let it go.


Well it went straight for the fence.


So at this point they are tuckered out. I think they thought they were going to just leave it there.  So I said....

"Why don't you try one more time to see if it will start?"


Guess what?


It did :)  To which Syd yelled "You have got to be kidding"



Its a good thing it started, because I would have hated to watch them push that thing up that hill.




P.S. He loves you... said...

What a smart momma you are!

Haha, "I would have hated to watch them push it up that hill" ~ yeah, right! You'd have been merrily snapping pictures the whole time!!! And I would have laughed and laughed.

Either way, very entertaining.

I have a similar story but it involves a sea doo and the intercoastal waterway. These things build character!

And Syd reaction was WAY justified. Poor girls.
