What a beautiful morning we woke up to this morning! We headed out bright and early to the farmer’s market to pick up our weekly fruits and veggies we would need. Then we thought at last minute we would head to the lake again and have a nice cook-out.
We couldn’t have gotten any better spot for the cookout. Great big shade trees all around and a perfect spot for the girls to play in the water. The charcoal goes in the grill and then we put the turkey burgers on. While, taking in the nice summer smell of the charcoal grill and the beautiful nature surroundings, I say “This is the perfect day for a cookout with the right temperatures and the big shade trees.”
About that time… I begin to feel sprinkles. Ok… let’s not worry about it. We are under this big shade tree… it will be fine! Then BAM!!! Big loud of thunder and a huge lightning bolt, then comes the torrential down pours.
We all jump up. Begin throwing food in bags, packing up chairs, trying to load our arms with the coolers and begin running for our lives. It took about 4 trips to get everything in the van and by this point we were all beyond soaked. All families around us yelling and running. Cars and trucks trying to get out at one time. Girls screaming because they were scared and the poor turkey burgers wasted. What a day it was… but we all get in the van and Thank God everyone is safe and sound… THEN we let out the biggest laugh and could NOT stop laughing.
Just all in the day of our life 🙂

Oh, well how fun anyway! Sometimes those moments are the BEST!!
LOL – I can just see it. We’ve had a lot of severe weather the past couple of days with no signs of it letting up. Glad you were all okay and could laugh about it.

Glad I missed that cookout! It thundered a little down here, and sprinkled just a bit, but nothing like what you got. I am burnt up!!! That sun was harsh Saturday.
Oh, how unadventurous it would have been to have a wonderful cookout by the lake on a spectacular sunny day… when you could have thunder and lightning and chaos and lots more LAUGHS at Mother Nature and how changeable she is!
You made me feel like I was there! What memories you’ll have!
