Weekend Shots

I carted the camera to my mom's house and only got it out once. Ooops. I took a couple pix of Doug working on the deck on the first day, but I really should of taken one before we left so we could have a record of the progress they made.

Doug spent the weekend cutting the support risers for the staircase and began the assembly.

I tried to get a nice photo of the kids with Nana so she could have a current photo for Facebook. That was fun!

And Aidan took one of the three ladies.

We had to hide out in the basement Sunday afternoon when the area went under a tornado warning. We had to keep reassuring Aidan, he was pretty freaked out about it. We reminded him that Nana and Papa's house is made of bricks and who's house was the strongest in The Three Little Pigs? Luckily, the storm went by quickly, though we did have to drive home in rain the whole way. We saw lots of lightening and flooded fields, but kept the kids distracted by rocking out to XM Radio HairNation and First Wave as well as listening to me read aloud from the Captain Underpants book I bought for Aidan.

Ahhh, back to the grind! I ended up buying enough summer clothing to merit a full load of laundry. Hopefully it all fits and lasts till school starts in the fall.

It looks like a great weekend, except that tornado thing. I'm glad it wasn't an issue.

Glad you had a nice weekend. Tornado warnings are scary; I hate when we have them. I never remember to take pics when we travel. It's always so much harder when you have your kids at someone else's house.
