I would have said boys, but I bet my 7 yr old daughter was involved in the latest mayhem. Some one had the idea to place long pieces of lumber with one end between the bottom porch railing and floor and the other end cantilevered out into the yard. While they were jumping on them, they moved a post base close to 3 inches, far enough that the end was hanging off the porch floor. These are the 6 by 6 8+ft long posts that hold up the porch roof. Thank God for good friends with house jacks and enough experience to jack the post/porch roof back up, bolt the metal base back to the floor and drop the bottom of the post into it's base. And we wonder why my hair is turning gray. :P

I am always amazed at the craziness of their ideas. We have a little trampoline and they decided to pull all of the protective foam off it this week. No place for the baby to be safe now.
