hurricane isaac ended up being not much of a hurricane (for us), but we lived it up anyways!
we made sure our 72 hour kits and all of our h2o supplies were up to date on saturday. we also picked up a new game and some treats. in our family growing up, hurricanes were always the perfect excuse for treats.
my dad is out of town on a cross country motorcycle trip with his brother, so my mamma stayed the night with us and she and i had a grand time watching the hunger games after the others were in bed. what better way to kick off hurricane season than watching kids hunt kids?!
we didnt lose power and that made the kids sad. so we turned off the lights and played games by lamplight.
and snuggled in blankets
and between rain showers we caught tadpoles.
we are still waiting to see if the storm surge floods grandma and grandpa's house. they were ok today, but the worst of it will happen at tomorrow afternoons high tide, so we have our fingers crossed.
the kids sure enjoyed playing in their cul-de-sac this afternoon.
we are feeling grateful that this storms path didnt cross ours. let's hope thats the case through out the rest of the season this year.
