For most folks, the 4th of July holiday is maybe a day to go watch a parade or attend a picnic, perhaps catch some fireworks when the sun finally sets. For the Garrett family, the 4th of July is the perfect day to dress up in your fanciest patriotic attire, grab a cowbell and crank up a bubble machine!
We've been participating the Lake Watauga flotilla for a while now, and every year it gets better and better! Of course, this year was no exception. It all starts with a Rubbermaid tote full of awesome:
Which eventually gets turned into this:
Competition is tough. Every year we're up against some 'Merica lovin' folks.
The key to having an awesome flotilla boat is festive attire...
...a loud noise making object (the cowbell, not Dana)
...small, funny children
...and good headgear.
You can't forget the important details, like making sure you have patriotic nails to wave to your fans with.
Because, you never know...they just might be Granny & Aunt Belva waving back!
Happy 4th of July y'all!
