|Foxy, the 4th of July |
Celebrating the 4th of July is a big deal for both Heather & Brett's families. The Garrett's tradition of participating in the Lake Watauga floatilla every year brings out our creative and competative side. We work for hours to put together our fantastic floating display of patriotism!
For the Flanigans, they celebrate the holiday at the family farm in Fox, Arkansas, where Phyllis was raised. Every three years the Kocher cousins hold a reunion and family from all over the country converge at Rural Special High School for the get together.
2011 marked a year for Kocher cousins family reunion, so we spent the July 4th holiday in Arkansas. Here's a fraction of the people we got to see...
