The Big Boom

We were playing in the pool when all the sudden we look over and see a man in an Army suit drop something into a bin and that's when everything started. We saw stuff start foaming up and bubbling. Everything started bouncing around making sounds that sounded like guns and fireworks.

The guy was jumping around, trying to get around a big cylinder trying to get out of the room. When he got out he told everyone that some gases had been released from the chemicals and that we all had to get out of the pool.

We weer playing with our friends in the big pool trying to figure out what was making all of the noise. Then Sara jumped out of the pool. She told us, "it's a chemical reaction...get out of the pool!" We saw everyone running away from the baby pool. We wondered what was so bad about a chemical reaction. A bunch of little kids were crying because they didn't know what was going on.

Tons of emergency vehicles started coming and we had to evacuate the pool. We saw three firetrucks, six ambulances and then a ton of police cars.

Wow, that's not exactly how I remember it . . . ;) It looks like your kids may have careers in {tabloid} journalism ahead of them.
