Saturday afternoon we went to our nephew's pool with the whole crew..The two "bathing beauties" are our 2 daughters..
Sunday AM, the six couples left for their night in Chicago, and I let Taylor take over the children and their activities..
What we have here is a serious game of Shaving Cream Wars...Give each kid a can of shave cream and get ready for organized chaos...and...good CLEAN fun!!!
That was our weekend of another crazy Cave-A-Palooza. We were missing Tim Heiser, since he had to "protect and serve" all weekend...Love ya, Sergeant Heiser!
This last weekend we had a really great 4th of July parade just down the street from our house...It was a fun time and most of the Cave family watched the parade...Bear with me while I post a few parade photos...Oh, Heck...I'll save ya the grief and just make a collage!
I have NO idea where our granddaughter gets her "hambone" from...wink wink...
Before I close this wackamo blog, I do have something very serious to present to all of you...We have a good friend who is a former Marine, and was a Sandwich Police Officer here in the 90's. He began having Epileptic seizures, so had to end his career as a police officer. He then became depressed from his Epilepsy meds and was near to suicide ..That was a number of years ago..His name is Toby Flaget, and he now lives in Washington State. We keep in touchm, and he has taken on a courages journey..Toby is currently walking across the USA, 3100 miles, to raise money and bring attention to suicide prevention..
"22 Veterans a day kill themselves, world wide there is a suicide every 40 seconds! It's kills more people than cancer or any other disease. So now that we agree it's a problem let's not fix the blame but work on solutions to this problem." ~Toby Flaget
I got a shirt to support the cause...
Toby's walk began June 1st and so far he has walked 830 miles and just crossed into Wyoming.. and his route will be bringing him right through Sandwich, IL this September..I urge all of you to go to this link Toby's Walk for Awareness. This is not only to help servicemen, but all families who have been somehow touched by suicide...We are so very proud of this guy and what he is doing...Here is a link to his personal Facebook page, you can see his route..and maybe friend him!! Toby Flaget
I leave you with a joke..Toby would appreciate this, being a cop.
