Super Saturday! June 29, 2010

Filed under: Life's Musings — Angie S. @ 12:00 pm

Wow!  Saturday was a super busy day!  It started off at 9am in the morning when we had to be to Wal-Mart for a Boy Scout Brat Sale fundraiser that was supposed to run until 6pm.  It was kind of chaotic at first because our Scoutmaster who normally has all of our equipment, buys the supplies, and provides change, found out at 7pm the night before that he was to go to Boston for a convention the next morning.  So, it was up to me to get all the last minute stuff together.  One of the scout dads, Alvin, had purchased a popcorn machine a few months earlier so we sold popcorn as well as brats, hotdogs, and pop.


At 12:30pm Zach and I had to leave the brat sale and head to the graduation party of my great-niece Tarissa.  It was fun to see some of my in-laws I hadn’t seen since Christmas.


From the grad party we rushed over to Gracie’s birthday party at Kiwanis Park.  Can you believe she’s 3 already!  It’s been fun watching her grow from a 6 month old baby to a tall, smart little girl.


It was a hot day and Monica had bought her an ice cream cake so you can see the frosting starting to slide off the cake!

Then, it was back to the brat sale to close it up.  We didn’t raise as much as we had hoped, but every little bit adds up into the boys’ accounts for summer camp.  We were exhausted by the time we got home!  Aside from coming to Gracie’s birthday party, Tyler and his friend Josh spent the day at BIR watching the cars drift.  He came home so sunburned!

    I’m really a stranger to your blog and just stumbled here through a google search. I’m heading up my first brat sale fund raiser for a youth group and was looking for tips. Do you have any advice for a guy just starting out? Pretty much any information would be useful as this is my first attempt at a brat sale.
