Thursday - Cub Scout Day Camp - Safari

Thursday morning we got to camp. We checked in and went to put our lunches in the cooler. This is what we found. Some animal such as a racoon probably ate THROUGH a coleman type cooler. A squirrel couldn't possibly do that....I am pretty sure.

Our pack had morning/afternoon flag. We are waiting to get started.

Morning flag.

Cub Scout salute please.

Please join me in saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

Our first station was Gorp. The boys liked the idea of making trail mix. The class itself was over in about 10 minutes. The boys were happy with the thought of lots of free time to play. They went over their skit a few times and then they were off doing whatever boys like to do to play.

Putting their gorp bags together.

All done!

Our next station was making masks.
This was Michael's creation. Each boy has a picture with his mask. I just don't post every boy here on my blog.
Lunchtime! Nothing like eating something yummy after walking around outdoors all morning.
We had bb guns right after lunch but no pictures are posted because bb guns is bb guns. The pictures won't change much. They did all pass with flying colors though!
Next we made really super cool segment snakes. The boys painted them really cool colors and some even named their snakes.
Michael with his blue snake. Again - each boy will have a picture of the snake he made.

A little squirrel. One of many around camp.

Our last station was down at the beach. It was a beautiful blue sky. However it was super super super super windy. The boys did not like that at all. It made for beautiful waves though!

Michael and Donovan. Donovan was our station leader.

Ocean scenery. This is looking south towards Pacific City.
The station was crab races. They did more than just crab racing.

Donovan had them doing red light/green light and a few other things.

Looking north towards Cape Lookout.

More racing.

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
