So we got home from a movie one night and our smoke detectors started to chirp. I thought no big deal, we'll just change the battery out.  In this little hallway behind Ryan and Molly there are 3 detectors with in a 2 foot radius, and one above Ryan's head so we had to figure out which one it was.  We found out it was the room on the left, the salon, and switched the battery out.  THEN after that they all started to chirp.  ALL OF THEM!!!!  Ryan got so annoyed he put his shooting ear muffs on to drown out the sound.  After switching out batteries on 4 of them, pressing the test button a few times they still CHIRPED!!
*he's so cute with her!
By this time it was around 1 am, they had been going off for a solid hour.  I was getting ready to call the fire department thinking they were the only ones that would know how to fix it.  The batteries we put in were out of the package so we thought they were new.  Ryan thought of cutting the wire and taking them completely out but we got nervous it would set our house alarm off, so that idea got thrown out. 
Annoyed they were still going off we headed off to get some new batteries.  Thank goodness Wal-Mart is still open at that late hour!!! 
*Don't you love Ryan's assistant.  She looks annoyed to!  Don't worry we took her to Wal-Mart with us so she wouldn't have to listen to the noise while we were gone.
It was 2:30am by this time!!!
They haven't chirped since.


  1. Holy freak .....if you would have called the fire department....I would have laughed my butt off....haha.....love it!

  2. That happened to us last week, at 2am. Luckily we had enough batteries. Sure was annoying!

  3. Oh my .... crap! that sounds so so soooo ANNOYING! Hats off to you guys for being patient! Derek probably would have ripped them off the ceiling after 45 min to and hour at least. Miss you!

  4. Haha! That makes me think of that episode of Friends where Phoebe's alarm keeps going off. Haha! Glad you guys got it fixed:)

  5. When one goes off, they all go off..... so annoying! But you handled the situation with great ease! Even at 2:30 in the morning! Gotta love that Wal-Mart!
