Needless to say that we spent most of the time in the nice house with everyone else until the crazy rental lady came and told us we were not allowed to have dogs!? What? you might have mentioned that 2 days ago when we got here. So we had to keep all the dogs in the cabin with no air. We had 5 fans going to keep them cool....so STUPID! Then we were told since it's a private beach that there are no dogs allowed. I wanted to scream at all these stupid rules!
At this point things are not going well. I was still looking forward to the big cook out that we were going to have to celebrate 5 people's birthday but then the craziest storm hit. In the span of 5 mins. We were pulling in the jet ski's out of the wather and this monsoon struck. Jared saw a man trying to deflate these giant water blow up toys and he got tossed in the air like he was weightless. The aftermath was pretty scary. Trees everywhere...houses destroyed. Luckily we were safe. A giant branch fell right outside my window. Missing me and the dogs by like 10 feet. The storm took out the power so we couldnt make any of the sidedishes for the cookout. After all that we decided to eat and go home early. There was no way we could stay in the cabin with no fans since the eletric was out. Here are a few pictures of the storm aftermath!

|Here is my sister holding the hail that had already melted for 5 mins...so big!|

I think I may have to try an plan a weekend getaway for me and the hubby. We thought this would be a nice relaxing vacation for us and that didn't happen. Anyone know of a cheap vacation spot or rental? We are in Ohio. Open to thoughts!
