About 7 weeks old
So the funny story kind of goes like this:
We had seven of the Frogley's staying with us, a full house. I woke up at about 5 am to fed Emmett....and then all of a sudden, the fan stops, the clock goes dark and all the power is out!
I figure, no big deal, it will be back on in an hour or two. Good thing my phone is charged and we have an alarm to wake up on time. SO we get up about 7-7:30, still no power. Nathan calls in, and I guess is the first one to report it. So they say it is expected to be back on in a couple hours. Glad I got ready last night!
We go to church, and another building near by was flooded, so all the wards were coming to our building. So we only had sacrament that day. Worked out fine for us, because we were leaving anyway.
The blessing went wonderfully and Nathan did a great job, and Emmet was a happy boy! So we snap a picture and head home.
We get home, our side fence is torn down.......and in the backyard we find this:
Some guys from the power company just digging a 6 foot hole in the middle of our backyard..........right where we were planning to have lunch!
No problem, the kids enjoyed watching it.....
It added to the ambiance of the afternoon:)
It was now cooler outside in the shade than inside with no air conditioning....
We had great company to chat with:
We simply just walked around them and their huge hole.....
And by the end of our event.....about 2 or 3, the power was back on, the hole was filled in, and we had enough food left over to give some to the men digging up our back yard:)
Thanks goodness all the food in the fridge stayed cold, it was 9 am church and wasn't another 102*f day, and all around...... it turned out great!
