If a tree falls. . .

. . . in my Momma's front yard while we are all at Cracker Barrel, and no one is here to hear it, does it make a sound??"
So we went to Cracker Barrel (we have gone there a lot lately. . .) for supper. Nikki loves Cracker Barrel, and they do not have them in Hawaii. Of course, the kids love it, too :>). Mimi and Poppy came to Momma's, and we all went together. We had a lovely supper. We shopped. We headed home close to 2 hours later. We found this:

What?!? Mom knew that the tree was dead, but she had not had a chance to do anything about it. We were SO lucky. If it had fallen a little to the left, it would have crashed into the living room!

The kids were thrilled. I guess they love when Mother Nature places an outdoor play area in their laps.
Jessa loved to balance on it.

Spencer loved to let his newly purchased at Cracker Barrel panda bear balance on it.
Such fun!

I e-mailed a picture of the carnage to Daddy, Lucas, and David. Within minutes, Daddy called. Then Lucas. AND sweet Lucas was planning to come and see Nikki before she leaves this weekend anyway, so he offered to cut it up for us! Yay! Momma is tickled. He admitted that it had more to do with a good excuse to use a chain saw!!

oh I love pandas!
Here I bought a cuddly panda bag (L) that I can hardly put it down!
I believe it is a GREAT find for every panda fanatic!
