Last Thursday was the perfect day for flying a kite. The wind was mild and the temperatures were just right for Sophia San Miguel to hit the City Park with her dad, Friona Police Department Sgt. Jesus San Miguel. Sophia, who is a Pre-Kindergartner, was having a good time spending time with her dad. Hidden behind Sophia’s kite is FPD Officer Andrew Aguirre. The officers were in the park to help with summer school activities and spend time with their children.

Mrs. Cash said they plant flowers that are trumpet like. She added that hummingbirds also like the big Mexican orange sunflowers. Doc gets some amazing shots every time he points his camera at anything. Keep up the good work Doc! (more...)
