Operation Bug Out

I am SOOOOOOO incredibly tired today. I can barely keep my poor eyes open.

We had a unit fundraiser today and there wasn't much help. We sold BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, chips, and homemade cookies. The sandwich stuff and chips were bought at Sam's Club. Guess who got to make the cookies??

Yes, I spent 10 hours in the kitchen yesterday, making over 300 cookies (Yes I said 300). I don't care to ever see a cookie again. Well, maybe I won't go that far, but it will be a while before I get a cookie craving :)

The fundraiser was in conjunction with "Operation Bug Out", a deployment event for kids where they got to go from station to station, learning about Army life. They got to try out MREs, go through medical stations just like soldiers deploying do, etc.

The best part of course was that Nick got to get up close and personal with a helicopter. He was pretty excited.
