Roots & Shoots Watermelon Mountain Animal Refuge Trip
Yesterday was a nice day, but very busy. We woke up and got ourselves out the door by 9:15am to head way north to the Watermelon Mountain Ranch Animal Refuge. A wonderful no-kill shelter that houses many dogs, cats and even rabbits. They have a nice facility that is growing and serving the community. The kids each brought some stuff to donate from the refuge's wish list and the volunteers were kind enough to take the kids on a tour of the facility and share with them some of the important work that they do. It was great to see the kids get so excited to see the animals and especially some of the tiny guys who's faces lit up when they got to touch a cat or see a newborn puppy. It was a nice morning.
We then went to a friend's house to visit. They live way out there so it worked out really well to tie the two together. The kids had a blast and I got to hold a baby for most of the afternoon. :-)
Then off to Grandma's for dinner. It was a really full day, but a lot of fun!!!!
