    North Battleford

    June 27, 2014
    I was just reminded that I have not blogged anything on our stay in North Battleford.  Sometimes the facebook posts get mixed up in my head with the blogs so forgive me if I miss things.  While in North Battleford we stayed for free at the Super 8 Hotel so thanks to them for donating the room.  We also had a chance to have a great dinner with the Stadnyk's.  Jodi Hoover and her son Brett were there as well. The Stadnyk's are Brett's grandparents.  If I was to think about what a grandmother from Saskatchewan would serve for dinner I think it would be exactly what we had that night.  Thanks to Rosemarie and Maurice for hosting us and for sending us with lunch the next day.  The highlight of the night was when Maurice and Brett played some Mandolin for us, and Brett showed us his dance routine that he performed for his class for an art project.  Very impressive.  Brett has PKU and it was great to meet a teenager with PKU.  Rosemarie was telling us that she has become quite the chef for PKU recipes, making Brett all kinds of things, of which I think perogies are a favourite.  I know that this is something my wife Sarah will be trying to master as she loves to cook and is going to be interested in learning some new PKU favourites for Avery for when she Visits.  Rosemarie, perhaps she can call you for some tips?  Our time in North Battleford was great.  Its been great meeting families who are affected by PKU and see them supporting one another etc.  The generosity of those we are meeting is absolutely unbelievable.  The success of the ride really depends on people's willingness to help with a place to stay or a meal and we really appreciate the support.
