After a little while some neighbor kids showed up to swim which was awesome for me (allowed me to continue working on some outside chores). Zoe had a ball playing with the girls, especially her friend Kaidyn.

One of her favorites - jumping in the pool!
Janelle's big jump!
After about 2 hours of swimming a storm starting brewing. Everyone got out of the pool & in the house just in the nick of time. We experienced a severe thunderstorm like no other. In fact, an area of our little town ended up with quite a bit of damage. The weather folks are saying it was either straight line winds or a small tornado. Luckily, we had no damage other than some limbs down & one of our patio tables got knocked over & the glass shattered. However, we were without power for approximately 8 hours. (So there went my cleaning & completing my chores!)
A girl can't cook without power so we ended up going to a town nearby for pizza. My cousin EJ & his girlfriend Mallory came over for the evening so they went with us. When we got back from eating, Zoe, Mallory, & EJ decided to swim. Casey, a neighbor boy, stopped by so he & I sat by the pool in candle light & watched them swim.
Not sure why the goofy look on his face!

Poor Mallory -Zoe was like attached at the hip!
Casey after he put his finger in hot wax!
It's supposed to rain off & on all day so hopefully I will get some more cleaning done inside. Have a long list to accomplish before we leave Saturday for vacation - Gulf Shores, Alabama, here we come!
