Prepare for a super long post!

Hurricane Irene. What a crazy experience! Being from the west coast we are not accustomed to hurricanes! We had no idea what to expect but we definitely did not expect the craziness that happened!

Check out this flooding!

I have never in my life seen flooding in person! I did take comfort in the fact that God will not destroy the earth with a flood again!
Kenley insisted on wearing her swimsuit!
At one point we packed up backpacks and took all of their special pictures and things and put them in the attic as we prepared to leave to find higher ground. It seems so surreal now looking back on it! Thankfully we did not have to leave because the flood water started to recede.
What do you do when you are trapped in the Goodfellow's house without power? Singing and praising the LORD!

Brian and Gary were pretty tuckered out by mid day!
Here is a good picture of what the water level was at in the garage.
Once the flood waters receded it was pretty crazy to see all of the destruction that Hurricane Irene left behind.

This picture of Claire absolutely cracks me up!

The girls North Carolina Nana arrived just in time to love on the girls (and feed Kenley ice cream) before we left!

Gary is a goober! :)
Looking at these pictures makes me miss the Goodfellows SO MUCH!
