This post will be semi short (in terms of words), because we are still without power and internet. So in the meantime, here are some photos from our weekend, oneish-sentence-per-photo style.
We went out to breakfast for B’s birthday on Friday! The restaurant sang him happy birthday and he got to blow out a candle on a muffin 🙂
We had a date night and tried duck tongue for an appetizer.
Friday night we had a SERIOUS storm hit our neighborhood. Our neighbor’s tree limbs fell on our power and cable lines.
While we did have some car issues with the storm, thank goodness this was not my car (but it was on my street. There was a line of cars hit by a line of trees that all went down.
You can’t tell from the photo, but my driveway is between that down tree and the down power line in the distance. We were stuck in our driveway for a bit on Saturday.
That didn’t stop us from having fun at our block party! LM enjoyed some watermelon.
And FW and B did an egg toss (and lost).
Sunday morning included a 5k – we ran with the kids in stroller.
And the rest of the weekend included buying ice (for our coolers, since we have no working electricity/fridges), cleaning up our yards and dealing with the electric company. Here’s to hoping we get power back soon!
Some questions for you:
- What’s the longest you’ve been without power?
- Does your neighborhood have block parties?
