Stormy Weekend

We had an enjoyable, somewhat laid back weekend. Went biking/running with the kids in the morning. Zan ran while I biked and trailed the kids. Ella and I ran a couple errands after lunch while Sam napped and Zan worked on the playhouse.

Here's the playhouse in progress:

(If you look really close it looks like Zan is wearing a white t-shirt, but it's really just a bad farmer tan on a really pale boy.) :)

Around dinner time on Saturday some bad storms started rolling in. There was the neatest looking wall/shelf cloud that was just north of us. The picture doesn't do it justice. I've never seen anything quite like it.

This cloud produced at least one tornado and some huge hail. I'm very thankful that it missed us. I haven't heard that the tornado caused much damage. I think the hail was the worst of it. The sirens sounded for a bit and Zan brought the kids downstairs until they stopped and we were sure the storm wasn't going to be coming towards us.

We got some rain later in the evening which I was hoping for. The grass and garden both needed some rain.

The sunset was gorgeous...

Sunday was much calmer and we just got things done around the house.

I have a new project in the works for my Etsy shop. I'll post pictures up here when I've got them ready. Probably by the end of the week. I'm sure you'll be on pins and needles waiting! :)

Sounds like you guys have had a fun and busy last couple of weeks. Love how the playhouse is coming along looks great and a sandbox is a neat idea. The jam sounds great and entering it in fair sounds like a lot of fun. The swimming group and kayaking also sounds like a unique couples workout thing.
