So this happened:

I mean, it didn't happen to us, but we saw it while we were driving and Paul insisted on pulling over. ("How many times in your life are you going to get to watch a van on fire?!")

And then after we pulled over we got to watch this:

We pulled in about the same time as the fire truck, and it must have been a pretty persistent fire, because it took them a good ten minutes spraying to get the fire completely out. 

In other news today was Ella's first swim meet. She swam backstroke, and she would have competed in freestyle, too, but the event was projected to go until 4pm and freestyle was the second to last event. So we stopped at backstroke. Next time maybe. 

We had two birthday parties today also, so it was a busy, but enjoyable day.
