"Greetings Crede and Mike!
Just wanted to thank you both again for the fantastic time that my family
had at the "Friday on the Farm" (August 22) outing. Benjamin
still talks about the farm and often asks me "When can we go back
to the farm?" He also tells me how much he loves Indigo!! A great
time was had by all!! Thanks again for everything.
