This summer we had a pretty mild storm actually that resulted in lightning striking two of our trees right by our house. Thankfully neither of them fell down (at least from the storm) and we didn't even lose power! That is an amazing feat for us, because we lose power all the time!
So of course this was a great opportunity for Phil and his dad to cut down some more trees (although they are the ones he really wanted to cut down, that is still up for debate, but they'll do). So one Saturday this summer after the storm, our friend Randy & his brother came over and the four boys cut down two trees in our front yard. Natalie, Tula and I cheered them on and brought them Gatorade. :)
