Today I am thankful for Cub Scout Winter Camp.
The boys and I headed out to Camp Decorah on Friday night and had lots of fun with our fellow scouts and their parents & grandparents. We got home late last night and all three of us are pretty well exhausted today.
Thile I could go on and on about all the reasons I’m thankful for Winter Camp, I think the following pics tell a better story…
Gavin after making a fire using only a flint and steel.
The boys had to build a fire from scratch and then get the flames high enough to burn a string that was above the fire pit.
One of the projects was building a birdhouse as a team.
S’mores… How can you really be camping without them???
Gavin decided to set a record for the most hot chocolate drank by a Cub Scout… Not sure it counts if over half of it ended up on his face 🙂
Look closely and you’ll see a guilty pleasure that I have about once every 6 months or so… Shower beer. After spending time with all the kids running around outside, being around campfires, and not having showered for well over a day and a half I decided to partake. During the course of a 15 minute shower I relaxed to great music, got cleaned up, and enjoyed some suds while covered in suds. Don’t knock it until you try it!
It was a very successful event, we’re all tired and have a ton of great memories to hold on to. And now time for bed… Zzz…
