Monday was Independence Day in Guatemala and many other Central American countries. Guatemala obtained indepedence from Spain in 1821. We celebrated Sunday night with a small Guatemalan feast of Chapin style chicken and rice and Guatemala corn cake. Yummy!
While we were celebrating inside, the winds were wreaking havoc outside. We had wind gusts of 60mph. Unfortunately, one of our trees just could not withstand the winds. This is right behind our house. This tree branch fell right on top of our fence in, what I call, the "poop pit." This is Porter's designated, fenced-in area and no one goes in there except Porter and Jason. :) Even though we will have to replace part of our fence, I am so relieved the tree did not fall the other way onto our deck, garage, and house.

Of course, I have to include a Little Pea shot. He is ready for the cold weather!
