We celebrated America’s 238th Birthday yesterday at the annual Santa Barbara Rescue Mission BBQ & Carnival. The residents of the recovery program, staff and volunteers hosted a parking lot full of homeless guests who enjoyed a delicious bbq (I especially loved the pasta salad!), some fun ol’ fashioned carnival games and a bountiful raffle of helpful items. Rudy had run of the place in his walker and joyfully greeted the guests. Luckily our friend Dale captured a bit of the fun…
We hope you had a happy day too! Happy July everyone!

Love those photos! So glad I could be there for a little bit to see how blessed the homeless were by the event. The women from BH has a blast!
Oh my goodness! Those pictures are the best!! The first one is too cute! Love that boyyyy!!!
Great pictures of you blessed day.
What’s is up with all the clothes – it’s July for crying out loud! Rudy’s shiner makes him look so tough. No wonder he won arm-wrestling. Psyched em out.
PRICELESS PICTURES! How neat that you can see the fireworks from home!!! Rudy brings joy wherever he goes….
