ABA fundraising BBQ

Whew! What a busy day we have had cooking sausages (well, Chris has had actually!) Today was our first ever ABA fundraising BBQ at Bunnings Fountain Gate so we headed over with the kids to do our bit this afternoon. Chris manned the BBQ with Donna and Kate and Anna were there to do the other stuff :) I ended up taking Jacob and Esme to the playground and then the shops because Jacob wasn't too happy about standing round there (surprisingly enough!!) while Chris did all the hard work cooking! It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day (a bit too warm actually - we had all come in jumpers expecting it to be cool) and it was really busy. I couldn't believe the amount of people who bought sausages!!! We ended up raising about $1800 - wow! That goes towards sending some of us trainee counsellors and counsellors to conference next year!
It was well worth crying over all the onions we had to chop this morning after all ;)
