The difference between girls and boys

So yesterday we got together with some other members of our family for a good old fashion BBQ and fireworks. There is a big parking lot across the street from my in-laws house that is perfect for fireworks. One of our favorite things to do is "tank wars." You know the firework tanks you can buy that roll forward and then shoot in front of them. Here is how you have a tank war. You each get a tank and line them up facing each other, then on the count of three you both light your tank and then sit back and watch. A lot of the time one will catch on fire and then that one obviously loses. Well this year I challenged my brother-in-law to a tank war and when he set his little tank down on the ground I surprised him with a BIG tank that my husband and I had bought just for this occasion. Long after his tanks were out mine kept whistling and turning and shooting fire out. The kids thought it was so much fun and laughed and played the whole time. They were fascinated with the tanks and three of the boys took all of them (about 7) that were left out of the packages and lined them up in a row. All of a sudden the one little granddaughter in the bunch comes up to them with one of the BIG tanks in hand and says, "Hello boys mommy is here" and she proceeds to put the BIG tank up with the little ones.
