My feet hurt but my heart feels GREAT!

Wow Marty and Andy are slave drivers in disquise as kind, loving people who just want to help cook at a small Christian camp...Beware!! For the last two weeks, Carolyn and I helped out in the kitchen. During the teen camp this final week, we got the brillant idea to actually do a camp cake for the final dessert. Gee that was a lot more work than I thought but it turned out really cute and some of the girls came over and helped out too. It was nice that some had some pastry bag experience but others didn't and it was fun to show them how to do stuff and do a cake that they were all very proud of. One gal said this experience makes her want to be a cake decorator. Awww...how sweet. Well the cake turned out to be super moist and it looked fun with lots of edible items and the girls even wanted to do shark fins...those poor rabbits, teddy grahams and red hot lady bugs!! The cake took about three hours outside of baking so it wasn't too bad. Overall, I had a great time serving and feeling useful with Carolyn nearby but boy did my feet hurt this morning when I woke up. LOL.



Well here is Carolyn...helping...she just got to play with people and this last week Mr. Marty and her bonded)

I had such a great time when I was there. Marty and Andy really know how to show us how fun it can be serving others. And the camp is blessed to have them there. They couldn't find a better camp cook! Kudos to the Sparks.
