A Note From Kelly


I hope you all had a happy and very safe 4th of July! We spent the weekend in Iowa at my parent's place near Okoboji. Dillon got to drive the boat around and found his affinity for the throttle. We were able to watch the fireworks from the lake and spend time with family and friends. It was perfect weather and a perfect night!   


For all of you who were able to be on the lake, did it seem like EVERY boat had one of those water pads rolled up or tied to the back? Okoboji was littered with them!!  They certainly are fun for the kids and the adults. I'm always amazed at how a simple idea such as floating foam pads can spur a brand new business worth, I'm sure, millions now. 


Regardless, I can't think of a better way to celebrate our nation's freedom than on such a peaceful night on the lake (especially when weeks later those same lakes were stricken with tornadoes!). I hope you all had a great time with your friends and family. 


Enjoy the rest of your July!
