Weekend Wrap-Up 6.29.09



We had another great weekend at Casa de Dysfunction!



Friday night, we went to the Free Friday Concert again. By we, I mean me, John, all four of our kids, my friend Heather, and her 2 kids. We threw down two blankets, snacked, had a blast, and listened to Black Violin. They are awesome! We bought their CD. They did a lot of Michael Jackson tributes, which we enjoyed. Tim got their autographs on his CD. Very nice guys! All of the kids really enjoyed themselves.

Saturday, we watched my friend Heather's daughter, Savanna, while she worked. We dropped off two of our foster kittens at Petsmart, and one of them, Smudge, got adopted! Yay! The kids played on the slip & slide, and we filled the little pool that we bought for the kids. That evening, we went to a bar-b-q sponsered by Mike Peterson of the Atlanta Falcons. He put on a Family Fun Day. He paid for everything including the food. There were bounce houses, bouncy swing things, face painting, you name it, they had it. He grew up in our town and it's one way that he gives back to his community. What a great guy! I forgot my brand new camera (go ahead and say it - DUH!!) but my friend took pics. I'll have to post them later. Mike posed for pictures with us and was very friendly. It was great!

Sunday, the kids mostly played in the pool all day. John and I tackled laundry & house cleaning. Later in the evening, my friend Heather came over again, and we had dinner together and the kids played in the pool some more. Then we watched movies.

Here are some pics from the Family Fun Day. Hope y'all have a great week!

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun! That's awesome that you get to have a weekend to make memories as a family.

I do want to ask, how do you become a foster parent for pets?

Heather said...

I hope you have a great week!

Little Grumpy Angel:
I'm so glad you asked!
What I did is found the rescue groups in my area by a google search. (ex. pet rescue groups Dallas TX) Then I emailed a few of them, asking if they needed fosters. Also, if you're interested in a specific breed, you could find them in a google search as well (ex. poodle rescue groups Dallas TX). Most likely, you will get a quick email response and they can fill you in on the details. Usually, the only thing you provide is a loving home. The group pays for food, meds, vetting, and all other needs.
If you have any other questions I'd be happy to answer them! :o)

Say, I've been out of touch a few days, but I'm almost ready to bring my blog back public after MAJOR tweaking, etc. I've even changed my name to ♥Boomer♥ -- though you can still call me bfs-MIMI or ... 'friend.'

Hope you're doing great!! Love this post!
