Great success!!

Blue skies, sweet pies, lots of people, and much fun - Heartland's yard sale turned out to be a great success. Thanks to all the hard work of everybody involved and all the great stuff our wonderful friends and supporters donated, we will be able to replace our old, decrepit water bottles with brandnew ones for all the Heartland bunnies. Yeahy!

No sleep for Megan and Jeannie before the yard sale, but even in the oppressing heat they kept going and going... while Brad found a comfortable chair after hours of loading and unloading heavy tables, chairs, TVs, microwaves, and so much more.

We want to thank all of you who donated time, money, and stuff to sell for your kindness and support. Without you guys none of this would have been possible! Our very special thanks goes out to Jolene and her kind friends who donated the most wonderful pastries which delighted not only our customers (people came back for more and somebody asked which bakery we were using...) but also our volunteers (the blueberry pie was divine!!).

Another special thanks goes out to our little Miss Sarah who was raising money for the Heartland bunnies playing wonderful songs on the viola.

All in all, a great success!

(...and time for me to finish one of those heavenly pies...)

Wild Children

Jeannie and I were lucky enough to catch these little cottontails frolicking around the rescue the other night. When we first came outside, four of the cottontails came barreling around the corner, zig-zagging this way and that, playing follow the leader. We didn't have a chance to get our camera out in time to catch the game, but we did manage to capture a little glimpse of their antics. It was sunset, so the video is a little dark. We hope you enjoy watching them...we did!
