Summer Storm and Summer Ball update

Saturday night Mark and I were sitting at home and a huge windstorm and rain started falling.  It lasted a whole 10 minutes....we honestly didn't think anything about it.  We were just happy to have rain!!!!  A friend of mine started posting on Facebook about the damage to her house so I decided to go check our yard.  So glad I did!!!  Our gate in the backyard was broken and down!!!!  If I had not gone to check the boys could have just ran out of the yard!!  

Here are some pictures to what we woke up to::

Tree limb that fell from the large tree in the neighbors yard.

The Tree now has a huge spot missing....

Had to move the Kia in front of the gate to prop it up...

Gate propped up in the back yard

Tree limb that came down in the backyard

Gibbs puppy pool that was blown across the lawn,.

Gibbs has a treasure.  Paper towel rolls and toilet paper rolls are treasures in our house.  Gibbs got this one but 5 minutes later, Brigen ran outside and took it from him so he could eat it...

Here is my progress on Summer Ball.   I am 1/3 finished with page three!!! I am just really loving this design.

Summer Ball looks wonderful! It must be fun to stitch the clothes on all the different people.

It's funny when our pets choose other things to play with instead of the store-bought toys! My cats prefer straws, Q-tips, and rubber bands over any kitty toys!

Glad that it didn't do more damage than it did.
I love your Summer Ball wip and have had my eye on this for awhile. I may have to break down this.

Love the stitching.It is really a pretty piece.
Gibbs looks happy with his treasure. Shame on Brigen for eating it.
Glad you didn't have to much damage.
