Thunderstruck! ST 6.16

These are some of my favorite pictures of Reese!  I couldn't wait to get them scrapped and tell the story behind them.  In the South, we are known to have some pretty severe thunderstorms pop up in the afternoons.  Well, this one decided to hit about halfway through naptime and it was pretty nasty.  Normally I wouldn't think much about it, but the lightning was horrible and it had started to hail.  So I woke everybody up from nap and we evacuated to the bathroom to wait out the storm.  The girls were none to happy about it, but Reese seemed to think it was a fun adventure.  He was being so silly and playing with his little pop up toy, but everytime he heard thunder, he would look up with a serious face and say "Uh Oh" or "Oh No" very dramatically!  I am so glad I got the photos that captured the two different emotions!
