Spring Break

Daniel and I were invited to join Pack 619 from Phoenix on their Webelos California trip over spring break. Their den leader/cubmaster has become a good friend and she has even agreed to be my asst. den leader next year when I head up the Tiger Den for Nicholas.

We traveled to a campground on Tuesday. I had been at the dentist the day before to deal with my toothache and the dentist gave me a prescription for Vicodin. I took one with lunch since I wasn't driving, believing this would be the best way to gauge how I reacted without putting anyone in danger. We learned very quickly that Vicodin makes me puke.

For dinner Tuesday night we went to Medieval Times. This is a dinner and a show place where you get served dinner with no utensils and watch the six knights of the various kingdoms engage in a tournament. Our group was cheering on the Red Knight - who incidentally ended up being the tournament champion.

Wednesday we spent at Disneyland. We had 6 adults, 4 older teen boys, and 11 scouts. We did a lot of walking and waiting, but the boys had a blast and Daniel made some new friends. Thursday we went to La Brea Tar Pits where we watched a short movie, wandered through the museum, spent money in the gift shop, and visited an excavation pit site. We went back to the camp site, ate dinner, and had a campfire show put on mostly be the older boys. Friday we came home and unpacked.

It was a great opportunity for Daniel and I to get some bonding time and I am grateful for the invitation and my loving husband who willingly took over the household in my absence.
