The First of Many

Monday, May 26, 2008


Hubby and the boys went on their first camping trip together this weekend.

It was a Friday-Sunday trip (they were originally staying until Monday, but CW fell in the lake so many times that he ran out of clean/dry clothes).

I wish I could have gone with them, but had to work this weekend (both at work and at church), so I couldn't get away. I will say that had I been there - more bathing would have gone on. CW and B10 walked in the house on Sunday with three days of filth and grime as they had not only forsaken showering, but also handwashing and brushing of teeth.

Gah. It was disgusting. I bathed them myself. Poor pitiful CW sat in the tub as I scrubbed the food off his face and told me he had asked to take a shower, but wasn't allowed.

I'm not sure it's not why he kept jumping in the lake. He likes being clean before bed.

Anywho - the Cub Scout pack seemed to have a great time. I've only seen pictures from one website so far (I'm hoping for more bloggy goodness). In all the joy and excitement that was shared with me, Hubby never let on that he got to play with Liquid Nitrogen (children - do not try this at home).

He assisted a magic wizard with the ice cream making. It's a pretty nifty activity, but one that requires an ADULT. The scouts stood around and watched, before partaking of the cool treat.

It was a full weekend, after they came home, and I shall endevor to write more (and post pictures) tonight. For a photo of the Brave Knights and Fair Ladies, visit the Cub Scout website.

Matt, it looks like I'm going to have to send you what we call "550 cord." With it, you can construct (among many things,) a make-shift close line with which to hang up said wet clothing so that it will dry (mostly) during the night. It sounds like you gents had a great time and I wish I could have been there. --Uncle Marine
