Things change so quickly...

How can things change so quickly from the beautiful night we had last night on the water...
to the wicked storm we had this morning (me, max, and my dad sat and watched it blow around us). When the wind finally died down and we got brave enough to venture outside, here is what we found:
Max's poor crab sandbox smashed by trees:(
There were 4 trees down in our driveway (we were stuck):(

With the help of some amazing family members and wonderful friends, we had things realitively picked up by late afternoon. Max worked hard helping me pick up sticks (the yard was covered) - the manly men had chain saws cutting the huge trees into pieces so we could all move them, and I don't think I've ever sweat so much in my life! Not a pretty sight! I'm just so thankful that our home is still intacted and everyone is safe - God is so good!!!!!!!!!!!

That's funny that you said Max was missing my boys. Landon talks about Max all the time. Ryan asked him the other day if he missed him and he got this sad look on his face and said yeah. He must be in a little denial that max is gone for the summer because last week he told me Max was there!! hahaha...I know you hate to see your summer vacation end but Landon will be so happy to see Max back!!!

I bet Max was crushed (not literally like the crab sandbox ;)). But so thankful for family and friends that helped you out. That's why God put them in our lives :)
