Hines Happenings: Tornado Damage

We were very lucky to have no damage to our home or property when the tornadoes swept through North Carolina on April 16th. It was a very scary experience for us. We arrived home just as the tornado was making its way through our town about a mile down the road from our home. The winds were very strong and we rushed into the house with the baby and got in our closet with a mattress over us to ride out the storm and pray that the worst would be over soon and that God would protect our family. It was over pretty quickly and we were able to survey the damage. There were several homes in our neighborhood that lost trees and shingles. The power lines around the corner were knocked over so we were without power for almost 2 days. We are very thankful that we had friends that could put us up for 2 nights and could keep our supply of breast milk in their freezer (that wold have been such an awful thing to loose that liquid gold!) Here are some photos of the damage to our neighborhood and town.

Hines Happenings: Trip to Charlotte and Strawberry Picking

 While my darling husband visited Boston on business recently, the kiwi and I went to visit his Grandparents (my husband's folks) in Charlotte, NC. We had a really great time and it was nice to have the help taking care of the baby while Jess was away. I also don't like being home alone, especially at night (I'm a bit paranoid) so that was also good for my sanity. We miss Jess terribly when he is away from us but absence does make the heart grow fonder and I think it helps a marriage to miss your spouse a bit :) Here are some highlights from our trip:

We stopped to see Logan's Great Grandma sing in church on Easter Sunday
"Swimming" in the "pool" for the first time

Spending time with the Grandparents
Strawberry picking
 We had so much fun picking berries and it took so little time, even with the baby, that we decided to take daddy on mother's day weekend. Here are our beautiful berries from picking with daddy:

If you've never been picking it is a great way to support your local farmers and it took us less that 20 minutes to pick these berries, they were so plentiful. Here is more info on picking your own produce in North Carolina.
