More storm stuff...

Camryn here:
While our Chris was out in the storm helping rescue trapped peoples like Firefighters do, he gave no thought to himself.  He did think of Mom and called in between calls to make sure she was OK.  So, anyhow, two days after the storm he's talking to Mom on the phone while he's got Emily out in the yard.  Suddenly he says in the phone "OH S***"  Seems this happened in the storm...
This is a picture of what was the pavillion and man bridge behind Chris house!!!  Hims insurance will of course take care of this damage.  BUT, in two weeks the baby shower was to be held there!!!  Can it be fixed in two weeks?  We don't know, searching for a plan B place now.  The invites are all sented out and everything though.  Plus all plans revolved being on Chris property where the guys could target shoot while the girls had Sam's baby shower, then a cookout, bonfire, camping and other stuff.  They can't do that at another venue!  The gazebo and barn be fine, so maybe the girls can do their thing in one of those?
Mom n Dad boughted a lovely oak rocking chair.  Samantha doesn't know yet, they're gonna use it at the shower as Sam's unwrap baby gifts thrown, Sam will also get to wear a crown as she's "The Queen" for the day.  Then of course the rocker will be hers to rock little Grandfoal to sleep in when he comes :)  They also gotted a HUGE wood cow with udders n everything for them to use as the target!!!  Mom'll try to remember to get a pic of the cow.  It's really funny!
Oh, Mom's gotted all the spoiled hay outta the barn, Dad's gotta move it back into the woods to open and spread about.  The neighbor lost lots more hay than us did.  We was lucky cause Mom's been buying only small loads till we gets moved.  Next load she'll take to the new place where it's dry, she'll keep a few bales here for immediate use and of course for Margeaux n Maizee to sleep on.
Later

    1. Yes, your right. We have several elderly coming though. Main reason the pavilion would be so great.

  2. I think the peoples will enjoy the "interesting" venue. It will certainly be remembered for years to come. As long as it's safe I doubt anyone will really care.
    They don't do baby showers in the UK. So please get your humans to take lots of photos.

    1. No baby showers!!! Well, according to Mom your not missing much! Most just silly games played, opening of gifts, tiny sandwiches, cake and that's it. Ours should be more interesting, specially with the guys coming too!
