There's something about the 4th of July that gets me all excited. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE seeing all the red, white and blue!   So we may just see how many days we can go with wearing red/white/blue - ha! And don't for a second think it's all superficial either. I'm beyond grateful to all the men and women who sacrifice so much to ensure our freedom.
I escaped today at lunch to join Noonie and the littles so we could check out some stingrays!!
Noonie sent me these next two pics while they were waiting on me to get there...sooooo excited!!
I think this one is part RACOON!  hahahahaha
LOOK!  They're KISSING mama!!!!
{check out all the bling-bling she insisted on wearing "after all, we're going to visit the stingrays"...he he he}
The little pumpkin could not wait to touch them!!
They're kind of soft but a little bumpy in the middle...
Meanwhile, this was as close to the stingrays as Hudson was interested in getting...
But after much convincing, he FINALLY touched one!!  Yay!
These little stingrays got a lot of lovin' from the little pumpkin today! :)
That was FUN!
{big boy haircut alert! - thanks Mimi!}
Checking out the horseshoe crab with Noonie!
This was BY FAR the BEST lunch break I've had in a loooooooooooooong time!!
ThANk yOU to my friend DeAnn who made this possible!! :)
