Weathering the storm
June 11, 2008 § Leave a comment
So after 4 days of seriously oppressive heat here, we finally broke the heat wave. Around 8 last night, the skies darkened and the winds began. The winds were strong enough to nearly blow away our gazebo, knock off branches and make our power go out for a few minutes. The kids didn’t seem to mind the crazy thunder and lightning so we are pretty happy about that. The yard is a bit messy and we have to put the canopy back on the gazebo, but we are safe.
Yesterday, Melissa also took her first dip in our neighbors’ pool. She kicked her feet and sat on Aunt Cindy’s lap who was floating in an inflatable seat. She was wearing her tankini…camouflage, of course…. she really seemed to enjoy it (even though she wouldn’t smile for mommy).
