not allowing brother to get all the attention
getting into trouble
stickerbook from Oma
We did manage to get out with our friends for a local drive-in cruise night where we ate burgers, had some good root beer and admired the cars.
Daddy did Hudson's hair for the occasion
The pink T-Bird was Annabelle's favorite
Of course the entire month we were counting down for our trip to see everyone back in Spokane.
One Day to Go!
(or so we thought)
We found out the morning of our flight was cancelled due to weather (Irene was due to arrive the next day); luckily we checked before waking the kids at 3:30 am. So instead of spending the day flying across the country, we finished preparing for Irene's arrival.
Annabelle and the "stinky cheese"
Sam made a great dinner to help my mood after the change in plans that morning.
We made it through Irene with no major damage. We had to clean-up quite a few branches in the yard, and live without power for a couple days.
Dinner by candlelight
The power returned just in time for us to do some laundry and cleanup before leaving four days later than planned.
