Happy 4th of July!

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday with friends and family! Have a safe and happy 4th!

First a little story about "flocking" for those who are unfamiliar with the fundraiser. Some friends of ours put together a fundraiser to help us off set the loss of Ben's income and soon the loss of mine as well in which late at night flamingos are placed on lawns throughout the community. You can flock someone by purchasing a fleet of 10, 20, 30 or 50 and sending them to anyone you wish. In the morning the flocked person will wake up to a yard full of flamingos and in turn they can send them on to someone else the next night if they wish. There is flocking insurance you can purchase if you do not want to have them placed on your yard! This is a very time consuming project that has raised over $3000 to date. We want to thank everyone who has given their time to this project, those who have flocked someone, and especially to Sam and Tabby...the "mother-flockers" who came up with the fundraiser and organize this on a daily basis.

So, of course at the local parade we needed a flamingo float too! Here are some pictures from parade...
