Scouting base camp and PINEWOOD!

Scouting, scouting, and scouting! Isn't it wonderful?? This last Sat. we had the opportunity to go to a scouting base camp. They had a rock climbing wall, a zip line/ropes course, booths, and had a ... starting out garage band playing. It was fun! Tiring, but fun. We had three of the boy scouts with us. We were put in charge ... okay, we choose to be in charge of the zip line/ropes course. Our jobs were to help the people sign permission forms, help the people put on a harness and hook them to the course, help them get around a corner, and off the course. We were getting a good system down when our shift was over. Here are some pictures from the event.

One of our scouts helping at the beginning

Sorry, kind of bright. This is to give you an idea of the course

Bright once again... sorry. Another view of the course

Another scout waiting to help someone around the corner.

I have to admit. The course looked like a lot of fun, but I think I'd be scared the whole time, if I did it.

Another exciting event was our pinewood derby!! So one more confession... I'm glad it's over. Takes a lot of prep! Reminded me a lot of throwing a blue and gold banquet. Anyway~ it was a success! The boys had a blast... despite the problems we had with the track.

At the start up line

There they go!!

More watching the cars

This is my fav.! Look how enthralled the boys look

Those are our latest adventures. Stay tuned as we have a fun-filled weekend ahead of us too! No, not scout oriented. It's Payne family oriented! OH! And... also check back to see how our pictures turned out from our photo shoot from the contest.
