Technically, I’m still on my mini vacation right now, but we don’t have much planned today so you get to hear from me. I’m going to catch you up on what we’ve been up to on these next few posts.
I was in charge of an event at the Farmer’s Market a few weeks ago. It kind of took over my life for a little while. It was an ALS Awareness Freedom Celebration. ALS/Lou Gehrig’s Disease is what my father in law passed away from in 2008. There are a lot more people effected by this disease than many people are aware of. It is actually a much more common disease than most people think. We gave out Lou Gehrig baseball cards with ALS information on them, sold raffle tickets, and partied it up with Charlie the Idaho Falls Chukar!
We were able to make about $100 for the ALS Association, and spread a lot of awareness. It was such a neat experience. Dave even made a Chukar balloon for Charlie.
On the 4th, we decided to try and turn ourselves into a little business. Dave made 100 bags of cotton candy and we purchased several cases of soda and water on a really good sale and we walked the parade selling cotton candy and they got a free drink with their purchase. We were a little worried about not being able to sell all of the bags. We were planning on walking the entire parade and walking back. We figured we should be able to get rid of all of it then, and if not, we would head down to the river where they had more festivities. We actually sold out only about 3/4 of the way down the parade! We didn’t even have to walk the whole thing and back. It was really fun and kind of a funny way to watch the parade.
My sweet brother Payton was hired to help us out. He’s such a good sport. He was a little squished in the car!
Oh, and want to see how our bedroom furniture started moving downstairs?
We were laying in our bed at about 11 pm and were sweating! We couldn’t fall asleep at all. We looked at each other and said, “Want to move our mattress downstairs?”. So we did it! We only slept like this for about 2 nights though. The rest of our bed is down there now! The bedroom makeover is coming along!
