Oh Say Can You See.....

...All of the billowing flags around?
It's that time of year - the time of year we love! There is nothing more inspiring than seeing our nation's flag bestowed on everyone's porches. Don't you just love driving down the street and seeing rows and rows of homes with their flag out!

Well, our favorite sisters Kari & Kijsa are at it again - yep.....making us run here and there to be apart of their blog (don't let us kid ya - we love it!!) This time they want to see our flags flying high - so......here we go!


We are so very fortunate to have one of the prettiest Presidential homes - Spiegel Grove, home to President Rutherford B. Hayes right in our "back yard"...so, we visited the center today to find out "What does a President do for the Fourth of July???"


Well, he gets ready by putting his bunting out - all around the porch



Then he makes sure that there is a nice, shady spot for the Toledo Symphony to play, for the special concert he will put on for all his visitors.






















Although, we don't live in presidential homes, we eagerly put out our red, white and blue.....here are lots of snapshots of our flags.....
























Hope you've enjoyed our "Tour of Flags"!
Have a safe and Happy 4th everyone!!
