When my older son was celebrating his third birthday, my Mom came running into the house covered in blood. The Wiggles music came to a screeching halt as all our party goers ran outside to check out the action. There at the end of the street was a daredevil skateboarder covered in blood whom my silly mom attempted to help bandage.
After the ambulance came and carted off the drugged up teen that decided to skateboard down a 90 degree hill with no helmet, the party lost all of its fun. Since that day, I refer these crazy guys as my "party crashers."
A pick-up truck frequently hauls this group of kids to the top of the street and they do crazy daredevil maneuvers down our steep hill - with yes - NO protective gear. The busy body neighbor on the street corner usually comes out front while calling the police, and its only a few minutes before they takeoff to avoid getting in trouble.
This afternoon my dad came by to show me his cool new friend - siri - and there they were again. "The party crashers." It's hard to interpret the speed on our video, but they have to be going at least 45mph.
Would you allow your children to do this?
