4th of July

Guess how our 4th of July went.......

This was the storm that uprooted huge trees, tore down gazebos, flodded the house and shed out back, caused hail damage and killed 5 people! It didn't last long but then again, neither did the power! Brandon being the great neighbor he is, went out and put his bike on the neighbors gazebo so it wouldn't blow away any more then it had. He also saved the kids' pool from flying over the fence. You should have heard them cry when he fell on his butt! I was laughing too hard to calm them down or take a picture.
Other then the storm we didn't do much. Couldn't light off fireworks, too muddy for company to make it to the house, and no power so we played settlers of catan by candle light. I soooo kicked brandon's butt at that too! What fun block leave has been so far....
More to come


  1. I have been wanting to get that game. Is it any good?

  2. OMG that game is soooo much fun! I'll borrow it from the neighbor when you are here and we'll play. Can only play 4 people though since it's not the expansion pack.
