Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet

Tonight was Blue and Gold. We celebrated the scouts receiving their achievement badges. Paul earned his Wolf badge and our pirate ship made for a good photo op. Some of the older boys graduated tonight from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts and had a special crossover ceremony. It was awesome to watch.

There was also a special thank you presentation from some National Guard troops to whom we had sent care packages while in Iraq this year and last year. They were very appreciative of all the goodies they received and showed us some video and photos they had taken there.

We also had a cake contest and auction. Paul and Troy made a derby car cake. One of the rules of the cake contest is that No Females Can Help. That's a tough rule but allows the boys and men some quality time in the kitchen. Another rule is that everything on the cake has to edible. Paul and Troy won an award for most creative.
