I hope that everyone had a safe and wonderful July 4th. My youngest son has been counting down the days until “Gary jumps out of the plane”. My son starts looking for Gary’s plane as soon as he wakes up July 4th. We live a few blocks over from where Gary lands. Gary Schmitz does his fly bys and then he parachutes out of the plane. Thank you to Gary Schmitz for making my kiddo’s day!!
