Last week Gramma had cousin S stay at her house all week! That was pretty exciting for A & I because we haven’t really seen cousin S all summer, and Gramma brought her over for a play day with Miss A! It was a great day. These girls are so damn cute together.
We went out to lunch, had a dance party, watched a princess movie, had sushi dinner, took a bath & got ready for bed together. When they left, my house looked like Hurricane A & Tornado S did massive damage! Way more damage than the earthquake did yesterday!
Before we see the photos of the fun from our play day, I’d like to talk about yesterdays’ quake. I know a lot of people are very shaken up, both literally & figuratively from it. I also know that it was very mild here at my house. For me…it was kind of fun & a little funny. I really thought I was going crazy! The floor wasn’t moving here, but the walls of the house were swaying back and forth. I thought I was dizzy…but then I checked out the lampshades that were swaying, the plants, the tv, etc. I went to call our friend E who lives around the corner to see if I was crazy, and the phone wasn’t really working. The first person I spoke to was AG in NC and SHE FELT IT TOO!
I know it was not as strong here as it was in other places closer to the VA epicenter, however, I’m grateful that no one was hurt. As we’ve seen out in Cali & down in Haiti & across the ocean in Japan. Earthquakes can be tragic. Here on the east coast of the US, we were all shaken…but not injured. As people experience the aftershocks, I am going to appreciate the power of Mother Nature & this earth…try to respect her more & prepare for the real life hurricane Irene about to hit. Here in Long Island we haven’t had a major hurricane since I was a little girl (same time we had the last little earthquake too), so I will pray that we don’t get hit with anything devastating or dangerous.
Now – check out OUR little natural disasters at work!
(Auntie S2, please note S’s obsession with A’s kitchen you got her…loved by all!)
What a great day! We can’t wait to play with Cousin S & Cousin A2 again this weekend!!!
