Default primary flowed out of airlock?

this is my first brew with a 6 gal carboy and airlock, I came home from work and found a mess in my garage. I cleaned it up on the outside, then filled a pitcher with star-san. i then sanitized a section of tubing and a new stopper and replaced the airlock with the hose to the pitcher of sanitizer water. did I do this right of did I perhaps contaminate the brew??
Oh I am making a german raspberry wheat, and used wyeast smackpack.

Sounds like a blowout. Since the flow is out, the beer is fine. You did exactly the right thing. Clean up the bubbler and replace it once the outflow is over.

And thanks for shutting off the caps, they are tough to read.
