More McKinney Falls and an Accidental Rain

The rains came and they just kept coming. It was still raining Saturday, but we decided to meet our friends, Byron and Linda, for a movie and dinner.  We went to see This Means War, we all liked it, even the guys.  Afterwards, the guys went in one car to dinner and Linda and I went in hers.  We were on our way to the restaurant visiting when, I'm not sure exactly how it happened, but while making a turn the car veered over too far on the other side jumping the curb and then seemed like it flew to the other side of the road jumping that curb and heading towards a telephone pole.  I was bracing for the crash waiting for the air bag to go off.  We stopped and I realized I was still o.k. and we hadn't hit the pole.  I asked Linda if she was o.k., she was.  We were both kind of sitting there in shock.  I tried to call Jim, but he didn't answer his phone.  Then, Linda tried to call her husband.  I got out to see where exactly the car was, the front bumper was wrapped around a small post. At the time, we didn't realize there was a yield sign bent under the car.  While, Linda was trying to call her husband, I noticed two fire trucks with their sirens on, but didn't realize they were coming to us until they arrived along with two police cars.  Of course, they asked if we were o.k. and then helped to back the car out.  Our husbands then arrived, the tow truck came, and we decided to go ahead with our dinner plans, We were just so grateful that we were o.k. We knew God had taken care of us!

Sunday morning, it was still raining, but about 10:00, the skies started clearing and the sun came out!!!

The plan today was to pick up all three granddaughters and bring them back to the "camping house" for a sleepover.

When we got back, we hiked to McKinney Falls.  It was really flowing after the rain.

The girls posed by the falls.

We came back and it was time for s'mores and roasted marshmallows!

What a wonderful end to a wonderful day!
