Caleb "Rode On Through The Night" At Cub Scout Lock In

(Place your curser over the pictures for a description)

Hi this is Caleb. I went to Cub Scout Lock In on Friday night. Lock In is a night where hundreds of Cub Scouts from the area come to the fairgrounds for fun activities and also to spend the night. I went with Dad and saw a lot of my friends there including Miles and Trevor. This year's theme was western. When we first got there we had to check in and then go put our overnight stuff in a box. Then we had to listen to some people talk about Lock In. They then opened up the curtains with the booths behind it. First I went to a bucket of water where I put on a scuba diving mask and put my face in the water to see what it was like to breathe underwater. Afterwards I went to a blown up event where I had to throw a baseball at a catching mitt as hard as I could. Some other events were BB guns (where I got a bull's eye), archery, painting, digging for fake gold, learning to use a lasso, bean bag toss, fishing, an egg race, and a lot of other fun activities. Then we blew up our air mattresses and laid out our sleeping bag. We got to watch movies all night long on 3 big screens. I tried to stay up as late as I could but I fell asleep at 2:00 in the morning. We had to wake up at 6:00 and had a doughnut and fruit for breakfast but I gave my fruit to Dad. We came home and I went back to bed and slept until 11:00. I had a lot of fun!

Scott is already trying to make a deal with me for next year where I stay the first half for the activites and then he will stay the night with Caleb. I think it is a great father/son activity. Lindsay and I had a fun girls night shopping while they were gone. I think we should keep it that way!!

Looks like there was a lot of planning that went into this and that Caleb had a really fun time. You wouldn't see this done to that extent here in Ohio. Not enough kids I guess. I agree with you that it should be a father/son activity...or does Scott want to go shopping with Lindsay???
ps. I am having a hard time reading through the red background on your site....I must be getting old !L ove ya, Mom

Did Scott also take the sleeping bag? How did Caleb do with the fishing pole?
