With life predictably busy, preparations were not surprisingly left until the very last minute. Even the documentation, receipt book and signage arrived in the mail the day before her event! Talk about cutting it fine!
The following morning, the oven was put into gear - cranking out several trays of homemade treats, some which were iced and decorated. The younger two became involved (and were a huge help!) by churning out a few homemade signs to decorate the stand.
The weather had been rainy all week and we were not sure if it would hold out for her to raise a few dollars. We packed the car anyway and headed down to Oma's neck of the woods where a street fair was running over the weekend which was a perfect location for the stall..
Thankfully the rain did hold off..
..and we even managed to catch a glimpse of the street parade..
The youngest was hijacked by Oma and taken to the climbing wall where her wits and strength were put to the test...
while Oma prepared a delicious roast beef dinner. She's so good to us!
Then it was back to the scene of the fair to see the fireworks. A first for the youngest, her delight was infectious..
The eldest managed to reach her goal (which was to raise $100) for the foundation. The biscuit stall brought in close to $43, while donations and sponsorship were about $110.
