Our kids chowed down like never before eating pulled pork, Kahlua chicken, rice and tempura shrimp...which will just make our Baka laugh because its like her favorite thing from Costco...the kids ate about 12 giant shrimps altogether...for our picky eaters it was quite a feat.
And then it was time for Alex to receive his Bear badge...as you can tell its a solemn occasion where the parent stands behind their scout for the big honor...it was super fun this year because his whole Den worked on completing the Bear achievements in time for the Blue and Gold Dinner...they decided to do so in September and they certainly met their goal.
Before we knew it, it was annual cake raffle time...well, this year...we decided to participate individually (last year the Den chipped in for one cake)...our entry was the volcano cake...you can see it in all its splendor below...
From R to L starting at top row - Volcano Cake, Spongebob Cake, Aquarium, Scuba Diver and our fun and fantastic table setting.
Before we knew it, it was our cake's turn...and wouldn't you know it, we had the second highest bid...$35, baby...beat out by the $40 Spongebob cake!!!! Woo-hoo!!!! And hey, get a load of our huge, superfantastic table decoration...courtesy of our friends...we had a giant inflatable palm tree...while everyone else had little paper creations or painted pineapples...that's Den 6 in a nutshell...a little kooky but fun.
And, well, the night ended as we walked out...to...six inches of bloody snow...SIX...thank goodness for 4-wheel drive...we made it home safe and sound...with images of volcanoes, luau food and giant inflatable palm trees still imprinted in our head...
Wishing you some tropical imagery in your wintery days...mahalo everyone!
