What a weekend...and two fuzzy cuties!

Our first year at Rock the Block in downtown Winston Salem was long (16 hours!) but FUN! We met SO many people - it was great! We were a bit unprepared, though...we ran out of business cards before dark!

The morning started out breezy, well take that back, gusty! Everything was blowing over, balloons were popping and I couldn't set out anything on easels! Finally, the wind died down around noon and I was able to set up all of our goodies. We had no clue what to expect, but we were SHOCKED when people started coming in. And coming in. And coming in. I was thinking maybe a couple thousand people would show up, but even after dark, the streets were literally packed shoulder-to-shoulder. It was so tight, like a sold-out concert! Crazy! When I picked up the Sunday paper, the story was on the front cover and they said by 4pm on Saturday, they had already exceeded last year's attendance of 40,000 people! They haven't released final attendance numbers yet, but I can't wait to see what they were!

On Sunday, we got up and packed up for an early morning pet session at Old Salem. The dogs were SO funny - "Stewie" got off of his leash and started to run, so my husband ran after him, not knowing that he LOVED to be chased, LOL. Stewie would run a couple feet, then stop and look back to see if my husband was still chasing him. I laughed the WHOLE way home about that. I love working with animals, just like people, they each have their own personality and things that they enjoy doing. For Stewie, it was being chased :-)

Here are a few sneak peeks from Stewie and Putter's session...
