Here's wishing you all have a safe and happy 4th of July. We are still weathering the aftermath of the Derecho of 2012 here in Central Virginia. If you are not sure what a Derecho is, don't feel alone. Most of us who just lived through it didn't have a clue until now, either. You can learn all about it here.
We are one of the lucky homes to have finally gotten our power restored. Tomorrow, we will be hosting a pool party and community cool down cookout for friends and family who are still going without. To spread the joy, here's a little video from the National Zoo's 4th of July Enrichment Extravaganza last year. The animals are having a grand old time. Hope you are able to do the same.
