We woke up to quite the surprise out back on Saturday...
The storm was a doozey and it broke off a large branch from our tree!

You can see in this picture below the only thing it really hit on the way down was our picnic table. It only barely cracked the right bench, it will still work just fine. Shawn had moved all the patio furniture out of the way a couple days earlier so the kids could ride the power wheels all around. SO LUCKY!

My hot husband cleaned it all up by himself. He is such a stud! We are just so glad it didn't hit the house. It seriously hit right in the middle of the patio, we didn't even hear it crack or fall- If Krista and the kids hadn't come over to play, who knows how long it would have taken us to notice (probably just later that day, but you get the point!)
