Busy Weekend Recap

Whew, we had a busy weekend. Thursday night Brendan has his Cub Scout den meeting, then Friday night was the Blue and Gold Banquet for scouts. Saturday I worked for a couple hours and then we headed to Brendan's basketball game, followed by a surprise party for my grandma's 80th birthday! It was at my aunt's house, and was a nice get-together. We had dinner, drinks, played cards, and we did a little activity where each person had a slip of paper to read that was "When grandma was my age, the year was (insert year)" and then we read a few things that were going on in the world that year and what grandma was doing that year, and each ended with the cost of a gallon of gas for that year. It was neat.

Sunday I worked a few hours again, and then we had yet another Cub Scout activity. This time the boys made dinner for the parents, using the kitchen at a local church (which fulfilled some achievement requirements). Unfortunately, Adam had a little attitude that got him in trouble, followed by a major meltdown and we had to take him home for part of the time the boys were fixing the meal. But after calming Adam down and making him help Joe with the firewood, we brought him back and enjoyed the meal.

(they decorated the tables real cute with Valentine's stuff)
