Madi: Friends, fun, puppies and festivals

Well Mom is pretty excited she had great Saturday (not at home with me) but out
meeting new people and seeing new things. I know all of you know Riley and Star the famous dancing Maltese pups...well let me introduce you to their human brother Jason and his wife Haruka Oatis below with my mom right there in the middle. Jason and Haruka have an organice farm, Edible Earthscape in Pittsboro, NC. On Saturday mornings they come to Raleigh to sale their

lovely produce at the North Hills Farermer's Market. Mom went over today to meet them. She told me they were a very nice and hospitable young couple. She enjoyed talking to Haruka about her edible flowers...which sound very delicious.

The weather was gorgeous today so the market was busy. Below is a view of their produce stand. Mom had to snap this picture in between customers.

There was live music playing on the green...some of the uninhibited children were jamming

Another view of the produce stands


Who knew puppies liked coffee...evidently they do


or that puppies shop for produce

Mom said she really wanted to get in the moon walk below @ Logan's Trading Company but the door was to short.
Duh Mom it was for kids not Moms


While out and about she saw this beautiful pink and white balloon arch

which marked the start of a 3 mile run/walk for the CURE for Breast Cancer

Mom said she stopped at this intersection as the Race for the CURE participants crossed the finish line. NOTICE the beautiful Golden Retriever walking for the CURE too.
Mom estimated she waited at this light for nearly 10 minutes as folks just kept coming by...she only saw one puppy


So that is how Mom spent her Saturday away from home...I'm not really mad because I took a very long nap. Madi

  1. Hi,
    We noticed your post on the Kitty Crew's bloggie, and liked your comment about how we cats know how to relax. Our mom thinks so too, and even made up a plaque about it:

    (No, that's not a sales pitch--she just thought you'd like to see that you are not alone in your sentiments.)

    We iss now following your bloggie--you have a nice kitty--she is very pretty.

    Buh-bye for now...

  5. Jack thinks that ALL flowers are edible - or at least put-in-your-mouth-able! I hope you got lots of good things to eat at the farmer's market so you can have some this winter when it (hopefully) turns colder!

    Great pictures!!

  14. Hi there Mom and Madi!
    * wavin paws *
    Now that was a festival! We have farmers markets here (which Momma loves to go to) but they are only vegetable stands held in tin buildings in a furry old part of town. But Momma loves the produce, so she and Dad go at least once a month. I think she would like going to the one your Mom went to.
