Happy Thursday, and Memorial Day Weekend! I hope you all have some good family fun planned for your days off.  Here is what’s going on over at SantaRosaMom.com this week:

A recent meal of pulled pork sandwiches I made with my slow-cooker

Crockpot Recipes
Sure, the weather is warming up. So stews and soups aren’t really popular dinner choices. But what about chili or pulled pork sandwiches? Despite the lazy days of summer, dinnertime will get here before you know it. Here are a few fix-it and forget-it recipes for your slow cooker.

Facebook deletes dying baby’s photos, bans mom
A family preparing for their baby’s inevitable death soon after his birth had photos professionally taken. But when they shared them on Facebook, the FB gods smited them faster than you can say “heartless much”. Did they go too far? Or was it warranted?

Teen models and bands wanted
The Sonoma-Marin Fair’s Teen Edge is looking for your talented teen for two Kids Day events. Check out the details at SantaRosaMom.com.

Come walk with us!
We’re bringing back Friday walks around Spring Lake, beginning June 8th, and would love to have you join us! Meet other moms and start out your day with some light exercise.
