In recent years my son has taken up a new sport - Triathlon.
I remember the day he told me he had entered into the Salmon Arm "Beat the Train Triathlon"....
I looked up at him (waaayyy up), frowned and said,
"You can run?"
Well, apparently he can. And very well, might I add.
The long story short is that thanks to winning 1st place in his age group at the Alberta Provincials this past July, he has been invited to represent Canada at the World Triathlon Race in New Zealand in October 2012.
So proud, but now we have to get him there....
his sister, who has dreams of her own that involve cookies and a bakery, decided to make cookies for my Sale and donate the proceeds to getting him there....
and did she bake!
36 dozen cookies, and may I say, the most beautifully packaged cookies ever!
(no one could say enough about how fabulous they looked, until they got to taste them that is... buttery, deliciousness in every bite...)
and these chocolate-covered orange-flavoured pretzels were a huge hit
with a ten pound bag of flour, a dozen pounds of butter and mountains of chocolate, nuts and cranberries, she raised over $300.00 toward his trip!
And me? Well, aren't I just the proudest MamaBear ever?
