Root Beer Anyone?

A very important day to the Turks for two reasons....
First:  It is National Root Beer Float Day.. YUM!
Second:  It is Dean Turk's Birthday - President Turk's Father

Happiest Birthday Dean!

Please have a Root Beer Float on Us!

We really didn't know it was Root Beer float day until 
I was talking to Molly... 
and Molly was texting back and forth to Kat...
and Kat was the one that knew of this important day
and Molly told me.
Thanks Kat!
 Before we even knew that it was root beer day...
President Turk made some RB floats for 
Elder Richards and Elder Castillo
who were over at the mission home working on the big board.

It is hard to find root beer here in Peru
So when we see it, we buy it all up.
We have a great stash now.

I wish I was home to make this root beer float birthday cake for you Dean.
I think it looks perfectly delicious.

Somebody should certainly make this and tell me about it.
