"Sorry,I'm going to be late for work....the road is flooded!"

On Monday, I had to work at 5:00. I usually leave the house a little after 4:00 to get the kids to the store. Well, a little before 4:00, the heavens rained...and rained...and rained. So I didn't get to leave right on time. I thought, it has to let up pretty soon, we might just run a little late. Well, it let up, got the kids in the car and we were off. I thought, 'Ok, we've still got plenty of time'. Until I turn onto Nichols Road and got closer to the golf course. There I saw all the water rushing around the greens, bridges and around the catfish ponds. This area is probably the lowest lying area here! Go figure. With all the ran in the past, I've never seen this road flood over. (There are signs warning drivers of being a flood area).

Where the people are standing is the roadway. Taken out by water!

Finally let up around 4:45 and cops started letting people drive thru it.

poor guy on the motorcycle:(

Our parking lot was filled as well. In an hour, we recieved 2-3 inches of rain.

Kids playing

All must come to an end right? Well, Monday arrived and Jenny left early that morning. I would be leaving with the kids after lunch. With all the kids out at the house, we wanted to go play outside. Of course, they all had tons of fun.

Jayden 'mowing' the lawn.

Gavin loves being pulled in his wagon!!!

So Jenny bought those styrofoam airplanes for the bigger kids right? Well, Mandy, Mom, and myself probably enjoyed them more than they did! No matter which way we seemed to throw it, the wind picked it up and landed it on the roof or in the tree! It was fun!! Good investment for us Jenny!!!!

Kim and Nate's Wedding Weekend (cont.)

More pictures....this was the decorations on the tables. Diamond shaped confetti, with bigger diamonds around them. It looked awesome and very bling bling!
