We are all fine from Ike, thanks for all of you who sent messages of concern. The wind was ferocious resulting in many limbs down in the Park and in our little town and a power outage until mid-afternoon. We spent most of the morning helping our neighbors with limbs, so we did not miss the electricity too much. When the power came back on, the Buckaroos were a bit disappointed, they thought it was fun!
On Saturday afternoon, the day the hurricane weather was arriving (it did not get bad until during the night) our Park had an event celebrating state park's anniversary. So, we dressed up and went to the old courthouse for the event. Big Buckaroo did a great job on his speech and introducing the head of state parks. I was so proud to be there, as the Park Wife (naturally to support my hubby and the Park staff) and as a recipient of the incredible work that state parks does for our state. We have an extraordinary state park system with many beautiful parks. I urge you to visit the parks in your area and create memories that will last a lifetime, I am going to!
We concluded the celebration at the park restaurant where there was cake and ice cream, and well, cupcakes for the kids. Now, I do try to serve our family the healthiest food possible~ we have a garden, raise pastured poultry (meat chickens) and layers for fresh eggs, pigs (no I am not talking about Tonto) and there was even the goat meat episode (that will never happen again!). But, just to show you I am a cool mom, look at how much Littlest Buckaroo enjoyed his cupcake.
I am one rockin' mom!
