We've all seen the videos by now... millions of people dumping buckets of ice water on their heads, participating in the Ice Bucket Challenge. I'm sure that some of you have too. ALS is a nasty disease. If you've never been affected by it, consider yourself lucky. My friend Amy's Dad passed away from ALS and she challenged Chad and myself to help spread awareness about ALS. Without blinking, I accepted for both of us naturally, ha!
So, without further ado... this one's for you Larry!

Nope, I'll be there too.... bring on the fun!
Since I'll be with Chad this year, I've made us a Kentucky State Fair Opening Day Checklist... check it out!
