Wordless Wednesday: Happy Groundhog Day!

Happy Groundhog Day! To commemorate the day, following are snapshots from my Beanie Baby Groundhog’s adventure to Cocoa Beach, Fla., over the weekend. Why did I take a toy groundhog to Cocoa Beach? Because VISIT FLORIDA, the official marketing corporation for the state, launched a PR campaign last week stating Groundhog Phil couldn’t take the snow and wait ’til Feb. 2 to see his shadow and had to escape to the Sunshine State for some warmth.
