Adventurous Crepes

We have the best BS (Bible Study) ever. Here we all are:

Tonight was a BS night. We had fun times with pizza, conversation, hockey... and another unexpected adventure.

As the hosetess, I ducked away to the kitchen (when the pizza was gone) to whip up some crepes for dessert. APPARENTLY we have super sensitive fire detectors as our fire alarm kept going off (and the crepes weren't even burning). To help clear the air, we opened the door to the hallway. This turned out to be a big mistake as the overwhelmingly loud fire alarm for the entire building started screaming. I thought "oh crap"...but that wasn't the worst of it. Apparently.

Literally, less than a minute later, we heard sirens...lots of them. We looked outside, and 2 giant fire trucks were parked outside, and big, fully-equipped firemen began pouring into the building.

Either this was a freakish coincidence, or this was my fault.

Then there were more sirens, and another firetruck and an ambulance came to join the party.

And neighbourhood folks began to gather to see what was going on.


The adrenaline was running high in our suite. Ashley swiftly took over crepe-making while I paced back and forth in disbelief (while taking pictures of course).

Lowell and Dan went downstairs to talk to the firemen and explain the situation. They had a good sense of humour about it, and even asked if we had any extra dessert.

The crepes were well worth the adventure! MMMmmmm yummmmm...

I have a bit of a tumultuous relationship with fire alarms. Have I told you about the fire I started at work within my first month? No? Well, that's a story for another day. Coconut really is quite flammable...especially when left with the broiler on high...

I can't believe you didn't offer the firemen any crepes...remember when Mum offered the police officer who pulled her over some cookies? We are our mother's daughters...

Remind me to be prepared for adventure if you ever make me crepes!

Lowell & Julie said...

Hey Shar,
Funny you said that b/c I said the same thing to Lowell & Dan. "Well, did you invite them up for crepes?" Apparently they had just eaten. Dang.

And Kylie...maybe we can have crepes in 13 SLEEPS. I'll do what I can to not burn Shar's place down though :)

I love crepes Julie! Will you make some for me and UPS them? (I am just kidding!) and I dont care if you burn them Julie :)

If its okay with you and Lowell and with your permission, can I have your email address? I get really neat Christian emails and I would like to forward them to you if thats okay with you both.

Also, there is a park here in Bakersfield, CA that I passed by today and you will not guess what the name of that park is ... LOWELL PARK!!! I thought about Lowell when I saw that and thought I have to tell Lowell this :)

God Bless!
