Yup, that's pretty much half a tree on our front porch. Good times. And this happened during the 1 hour of torrential downpour last Sunday night. But we handled it well. I threw some stuff into a bag and packed up LG. We went out in search of a hotel to camp at. In the mean time, PB turned off the power and the gas and gathered up some other stuff to get us through the night. Of course, I had forgotten my cell phone at work, so we had to rely on a network approach to regroup (thank you Uncle B, for being a relay station). And LG and I had to go to 3 different hotels before we found one with power and a vacancy (good times in the pouring rain and wind). But LG was a real trouper. The only time he cried was after hotel # 2, when the wind was really whipping around and pelting us with rain. And by the time we got to hotel #3 he was right as rain again.
LG is officially pulling himself up to a stand and walking himself around objects now. It's fun to watch (until you realize that he's only 7 months old, and way to early for this). His crawl is a light speed, so there's no where he can't go (for instance, through the cat door). Again, cute, but a handful.
