Rockin' & Rollin'

Man, now I have to deal with tornado's AND earthquakes?! Cole and I arrived just in time to experience the 5.4 shaker on Tuesday afternoon. We were sitting at the kitchen table eating some lunch when the house started to move. It lasted for a really long time. Cole was sitting in his highchair and I don't really think he noticed it, but I sure did!! This was the largest earthquake since 1994, I was 12 years old and it was pretty scary. Maybe it was mother nature's way of saying Happy Early Birthday, Cole! We were waiting for you!! Hopefully the earth will stay still until we go back to Texas, but I will take an earthquake over a tornado any day...

Omg..tomorrow is Cole's Birthday!! I can't wait!!

Scary!! I don't know - I guess I'm just used to tornados! An earthquake seems scarier to me! Happy almost birthday Cole!!

Lucky for us, we live in a place where both are very rare..more likely for tornados but those are rare...I'm glad everyone is okay. I was looking at some of the older pics of Cole. He's changed so much!! It's hard to believe this cute little baby is turning into an even cutier, or should I say HANDSOME, toddler :) I hope the big day goes well. Can't wait to see pics and hope you have a safe rest of your trip and flight home!
