Weekend Fun!

We'll do the drawing for Feminine Appeal later this afternoon, but for now I wanted to give you some info about fun stuff going on around town (or near our town) this weekend. Then we're heading to the hospital to meet our newest family member! Aunt Lynsey is having a baby girl today! Hooray! Happy Birthday Ruthie Claire! We love you already and can't wait to meet you!

Family Fun Day
May 23, 2009 -
Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater
Family fun day is an event the entire family can be a part of.
“We created Family Fun Day to provide a spirit filled environment for the whole family,” says Edward Graham, founder of Family Fun Day—Brazos Valley.

There is a myriad of events that take place throughout the day such as face painting, train rides, and other fun activities that will entertain the entire family. Various vendors from across the state of Texas will display and offer their products to an estimated crowd of more than 5,000 people.

In addition to the full day of activities, a wide variety of entertainers will grace the Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater from the Motown sounds of the 70s to today’s hottest artists. Zapp, The Dazz Band, and Lenny Williams will represent the old school portion of the show. While Mike Jones, Lil Will, Cupid and Montell Jordan will represent today’s hottest artists.

Family Fun Day will also feature one of the biggest names in Gospel music today, James Fortune and Fiya, who currently hold the number 1 song position on the Gospel charts for the last seventeen weeks, “I Trust You”.

A portion of the proceeds from Family Fun Day—Brazos Valley will be donated to The Girls Club of Brazos County, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization specifically created to help young girls in the Brazos Valley prepare themselves for the future while emphasizing the importance of life skills.
