So....what do you do on hot July night with the power out.....well, you just move the crew to the front porch! Notice the newest swing Shannon built....he wanted a new and bigger swing than the one before....he said this one will fit the whole family :) After 3 hours of swinging, painting toenails, singing, and so on....we called it a night around 10pm ...after all, we did have church the next morning. As soon as we put the angels down for bed the lights came back on....what a blessing......we were rescued from a hot sleep! I have to say we had several offers from friends to come and stay the night.....but we truly enjoyed the experience. We all need to be reminded of the things we take for granted sometimes.....and Maddy got a fresh set of pink toes for church :)
This all reminded me of the Andy Griffith Show and the song "I Miss Mayberry"......simple times!
