Blue and Gold

Last night was the Blue and Gold dinner for Cub Scouts.  Scouts has been around for 100 years, and so, the theme was HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Scouting.  It couldn't have been on a better day, it was also Nat's birthday as well.  As the usual tradition that our troop has, it was the anual Father and Son (moms are not allowed to help make/bake it) cake making contest.  So, as the procrastination set in, Nat and Charlie made this wonderful cake just 3 hours before the dinner.  I think they did a great job in just 3 hours (best part... I didn't have to make a cake for Nat's birthday).  The boys cake turned out really yummy, it was German Chocolate.  Charlie got the award, "Wilderness Survival and Readiness".  All the boys did a great job on all of their cakes.  I think there were 10 different cakes that we got to choose from for dessert.
It is a backpack with a sleeping bag... The C.S. stands for Cub Scouts... not Charlie Stamps :-)

Also, I (as the best mom ever), got pinned by Charlie last night.  He has finished all the requirements and earned his Weblo badge last night. 
Now all he has to do is concentrate for the next 2 months is earning his Arrow of Light.  Then, it is off the the 11 year old scouts.  Man, I can't believe that he will be 11 in just over 2 short months.
