Austin Dog Rescue - K9 Karnival

Hard to say who had more fun at Austin Dog Rescue's K9 Karnival - the people or the doggies! Jakey sure had a wonderful time making balloons for both!

"Austin Dog Rescue is a foster home based organization that saves dogs from high-kill shelters. The dogs we save were picked up as strays or abandoned by their family and were left with no hope of a better life. We believe that life is precious and the dogs we save deserve no less than a second chance at finding a loving, caring home. We are the catalyst behind giving them that chance."

There was an Obstacle Course and a Scavenger Hunt! One of the items on the Scavenger Hunt was a hat. So I ended up making a few balloon "hats" for the doggies!

Melissa from Austin Dog Rescue liked her purple balloon doggie! She did a great job organizing the K9 Karnival and also makes a yummy berry sorbet!! :-)

Old Pecan St. Spring Festival 2011

Did I say "spring"? I should have said summer!
Mother's Day hit 98 scorching degrees in downtown Austin.
Thank goodness for sunscreen and Gatorade...

The other clown at Pecan St. just looked at these 2 goofy guys weird when they asked him to make them "embarrassing" hats.
Doesn't stop Jakey!
A pink octopus & a neon flower hat ought to do the trick! LOL

Mom took the picture - sure wish she had gotten the bat that was perched on top of this kid's hat! Really made for a complete ensemble!! :-)

Okay. I admit Jakey wasn't the only colorful character at Pecan St.!!

These 3 siblings loved their hats!
I was given all of the flowers from the booth that is pictured behind them! The very talented vendor makes unique vases! Should have gotten one of them - all the flowers would only fit in this pitcher when I got them home!

A beautiful reminder of a very fun Old Pecan St. Festival!!
