On a whole other subject....a few weeks ago, the wknd of the 4th, we had a huge storm and had NO power. We spent one night at the house but by the next day we decided to make lemonade out of the lemons we'd been given.
Jared decided we would go stay at a hotel. I LOVE this man. We went to a nice hotel with a pool and had room service and actually relaxed some. Truth be told, it was more relaxing than our vacation up north AND way cheaper. :)
Our neighbors tree came down in the storm and managed to fall in between their cars that were parked in the driveway and it missed their house. This made us feel less guilty when we drug a lawn chair to the front yard so that the boys could watch the city workers cut the tree and put it through the chipper. They were quite happy.
