Caribou Classic

On Friday & Saturday, I went to Soda Springs to help my parents with a food stand at the snow machine hill climbs. It was so much fun. We use to help with the hill climbs when I was in high school, so Tauna & I got to re-live some old memories. We made hamburger, hot dogs, walking tacos (a bag of Doritos, taco meat, shredded cheese, lettuce and salsa), hot chocolate, cinnamon rolls, chips, candy and soda pop. Friday was a nice day, it was a little over cast. Saturday, on the other hand, was cold and snowy. We sold over 300 burgers on Friday and didn't have any for Saturday so I volunteered to go to Poky and get some more. It was the worst winter driving ever. I started crying on the way there on the freeway and I was ready to pull over and not go any more. But I keep going and finally got to Poky. On the way back, the roads where just a little slushy and not bad at all. We sold lots and lots of food. When we finally left, the road were bare and dry. I would not believed it had snowed that morning if I had not been driving in it. We had a lot of fun. I'm sad that Brad wasn't able to come, he had to work. But I hope there will be more in the future....

Wow, I can't believe you sold 300 hamburgers in one day!! I would have been so scared to drive by myself on bad roads. Good job on being safe!
