Well, yesterday started out sunny and beautiful with perfect weather for soccer.
My girls played their last game of the season and ended with a record of 7 and 1. Not too shabby! We will have our end of the season party at a local frozen yogurt joint. I may have had something to do with the planning of that. Hehe. Love my fro yo!
Jonny’s mom is out of town, so we went out to dinner with Jonny’s dad, Jack. He picked us up and we were on our way to the restaurant when we heard the loudest CRACK! We thought he blew a tire; Jack was about to get out of the car to check when all of a sudden tons of hail started falling. It was pelting the car so loudly, we could not even hear each other. By the time Jack raced through the neighborhood and made it to the restaurant, the hail had passed. We talked to someone sitting next to us and they said they passed a car whose rear window had been shattered. The hail was no joke!
That is a picture from one of my friends. Literally softball size hail! My brother sent this next picture of his backyard.
We were nervous to go back home and see the potential damage. So instead we enjoyed a glass of red during dinner and tried not to think about it. My lobster bisque and lobster cobb salad did a nice job of keeping me occupied. Jack and I took a nice picture while Jonny was not feeling quite as photogenic.
Alas, we needed to head home. We were faced with some gutter damage.
Luckily, that’s all it was. It could have been a lot worse and for some people it was. This was one of the times that I thank my lucky stars (and my angels above) that we (and our friends and family) were safe and sound. Material things can always be fixed.
Side note: Today mark’s the end of Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp.
I enjoyed the bootcamp as it was a motivating way to set goals, actually keep them, and try some new workouts. Plus the fact that prizes were involved was an extra motivational factor! I haven’t gotten a chance to try all of Tina’s workouts, but now that I have them I definitely will. This past week was awesome regarding my goals. I did get 3 days of strength training and 5 (actually 6!) days of activity and 3 different types of cardio. Planning my workouts played a major role in this success. A big thank you goes to Tina for putting this bootcamp together; be on a lookout for another one!
Have you ever been caught in a hail storm?
