After we were done at Hobby Lobby (3 hours later), we headed to Alderwood Mall. We had lunch at my favorite lunch place, Panera. The gentleman there told us there is one coming to Bellingham!!!! YEAH!!
We headed home about 4:45 because I had a meeting at 7. We were sailing along and as the traffic started to slow down by the Everett Mall, all of a sudden we noticed smoke billowing out of the car!! We were in the car pool lane and so I quickly moved to the left hand side. I called our friend Dan because he works in Mt. Vernon so I figured he was closest. He graciously headed south to us with parts (I had told him it looked like a radiator hose issue). I won't go into all the details (like sitting in the car and an officer coming and knocking on the window and scaring us to death as we were playing games on our ipods :).......here are some pics from the adventure.

|See how mechanical I am??|
|Dan and Scott getting to it..............|
|See the big split on the top right? OOPS!!|
We arrived home safe and sound (and still cold). So thankful for friends, for God's protection (my how a car moves when other cars whiz past it), for a friend to giggle with through the whole thing, and for a nice warm bed at home!!
