This evening Riley asked me, “Mommy, why did you tell me there was going to be an earthquake?” I guess he thought I had gotten prior notice that there was going to be an earthquake and was mad I didn’t tell him about it. I explained that I didn’t know there was going to be an earthquake either and that know one knows when earthquakes are going to happen. He didn’t seem too satisfied by my answer and was a bit skeptical that I wasn’t aware there was going to be an earthquake in advance.
We had our annual Tye-Dye Day today. We had been busy tye-dyeing for a while and Falyn was inside having lunch when an earthquake hit! It was a big enough jolt that I ran in the house and grabbed Falyn and ran back out. It was still shaking when I got back outside with her. The kids were all shaken up and I made them all stay outside tilll we were sure it was a pre-shock for an even bigger quake. I had some stuff fall over in the garage, but it doesn’t appear we have any damages. The earthquake was a 5.4 located in Chino Hills.
Other than the earthquake the tye-dye day was a big success! Here’s some of the pictures of the fun.
