The Mommy Island Supporting a Good Cause!
On Saturday we launched our biggest fund raising event to date, and I want to say I was not the leader over this event so I don't want to take any credit away from the all the great people who thought this up and helped to make it a success. This was an all day event at our local fairgrounds in a huge outbuilding. We started the day with a yard sale/bake goods sale, then we hosted a vendor fair. This is where I had a lot of fun. I purchased booth space for my blog, and lots of people got to hear about this fabulous island! I passed out Boogie Wipes samples and coupons and I was able to share my opinions about some of the great products I've been honored to review. As you can see from the picture I was able to show off the Scuttlebug from Schylling Toys. I was happy to get the word out about my blog, but it was awesome knowing my money was going to great cause, so it was a win/win.
There was a dog agility fun show going on in a huge section of the building throughout the day, and I couldn't believe the talent of the dogs and the dedication of the trainers. If I get Luna to just sit when I ask her to I feel proud. These people and their animals were awesome and the Booper had fun watching all the dogs perform.
We closed the event with a concert, and rocked out to lots of great music played by a local band. It was a family friendly show, and all the kids had a blast dancing around and playing with glow stick necklaces.
Today, I'm exhausted from all the events of yesterday, but it was all worth it.
I crashed last night with a smile on my face. ~Becky
