The lovely Mr John Zink and his family's love of nature and conservation, and the Scouts, our boys got to go camping for a weekend without any other cubs. It was just us - on our own for entertainment and activities. And we survived!
This is Son#2 - the Webelo I, faking a passout. It was really warm this past weekend, and the boys were playing hard! The structure behind him is called The Landship, its a large, 3-story, structure that resembles a boat, it has a "steering" wheel and a flag mast - neither of which worked, mind you. The boys played Jack Sparrow for hours!
Later in the day we played water tag, this gave the boys a good chance to cool of and just play. Son #2, currently a Scout Buddy, can't wait to finish kindergarten to sign up as a Tiger.
There is a burn ban on in Oklahoma, so all food was cold prep only. Each family provided enough food for their family w/ the idea of sharing. We took for lunch turkey and cheese sandwiches, and for dinner we had taco salad. Breakfast was pop-tarts. Snacks were fresh fruit and granola bars.
While the boys did table activites (tying knots, drawing maps), I did this
My first tow-up sock from Wendy
and now I look like this:
I don't think this photo shows how red or swollen I really am. Trust me when I say, "Buy new sunscreen EVERY YEAR!" The one I was using was 30, and just purchased in August, but I think it didn't work!
