The Get Away

Step on it dad, that car is about to ram us!

We really need a camera in the back of the car so we can keep an eye on them.

Whats that smell? Something stinks.

It's a stinky stunk.

I said stunk, not skunk. Maybe that car gassed us, roll down the window, it might be poisonous.

At the top of the hill, jump the car in front of us so we can get away.

Jump. Jump. Jump. Jump.

Whoa that was cool, they are gone now.

Can we have ice cream to celebrate?

If you had any doubt they belonged to me, that should be erased now. What can I say, we live life in the Action/Adventure aisle.

[No laws were actually broken in the making of this blog. While the conversations are actual, its physically impossible to get granddaddy's truck airborne. Not that we tried. Oh man, when he gets back from Indiana we are going to hear about this one.]

I love it! I'm going to use the word 'stunk' with Princess Nagger...bet she'll try to correct me. ;)

Princess Nagger always pretends we're in a race whenever we go anywhere...and when we are driving in a hilly area she wants me to go fast so she can pretend she's on a roller coaster...shrieking in laughter the whole way. I'm going to miss these days! :)

@ronda - is only you could have smelled it. honestly, i think it was cole, but he would not fess up.

My brother and I always wanted to mount a canon to the hood ornament so that we could blow up the cars in front of ours(Our Dad's, actually) :)

Leah said...

That picture really captures it perfectly!

You live in Hazzard County? Keep Boss Hogg off your bumper and remember that runnin' shine is illegal in this state.

Wings said...

"we live life in the Action/Adventure aisle."

We all should. ;)

One of my boys used to call skunks stunks. I loved this fun post, Brian.

Kate Hanley said...

My kids love it when we do "tummy ticklers" or drive a bit faster over little hills that make your tummy flip. It's the little things. Great photo.

FoN said...

Ever try to get from one place to another without coming to a complete stop? Kids love that. Cops.....not so much. I KID!

Betsy said...

When Taylor was younger he'd always complain that The Mister "drove as slow as an old grandma" and "why did he have to let all the other cars pass us?"

That icecream looks wonderful! :)

Cinnamon said...

I love the conversations of children! Keep on recording them Brian, time passes so quickly.

TechnoBabe said...

You were just clearing out the fumes in granddaddy's truck, helping him out so his truck would run smoothly when he gets back!

Lorraine said...

You are one of my favourite writer on bloger, I'm having such a hard time concentrating these last few days, I think the incessant noise of the construction, and all the re-routing in front of my house, and accidents 'cause people get bad-tempered, and I just can't concentrate....bear with me...I should be ok this weekend, I hope there will some silence and I can catch up on the longer blogs...the one two liners are easier 'cause I don't have to concentrate...;)

A.Decker said...

Ha!Ha! "...stinky stunk..." made me suspect what was up.
Poison gas!? Jump the car!? What adventure. They can make anything fun. We should learn from them.

Vince Farrell said...

sounds like good times!!!

Doing well, things are slow right now, but God gives bread everyday. Getting ready to head to a few churches next week in the KY area.

Sorry I don't comment as often as I should, I'm reading just invisible :)

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

This is why boys need lots of time with their Daddies. ;-)

Tom said...

oh the conversations we used to have at the kitchen table with the kids...can't tell you how many times I choked on my food to keep from spitting it out!

Susan B. at warmchocmilk said...

Nancy said...

LOL! Little backseat drivers.

Megan said...

:)

I used to tell my cousin, "Go zooming!" and she always did. Fun times.

Valerie said...

Stinky stunk... cool! Not that I want to go back to the beginning, but I sure wish my Dad had allowed me to be more adventurous! Loved this post, Brian. Needed the giggle, so thanks!

Lorraine said...

LOL I love this and to celebrate the stink, have ice cream, I say you're a genius !

Debbie said...

Being in a car with kids is always an adventure, isn't it?

The Good Cook said...

There is something about a little person with a BIG ice cream cone that just warms the heart.

How lucky you are. How lucky your children!

The Retired One said...

Love being the fly on the wall of your boys night out.
Kids are absolutely AWESOME.
I love hearing my grandson explain something that excited him at school.
All innocence, wide eyes, breathless explanation....oh to be young again!
