This past Saturday evening was fantastic. I hope I never forget it.
Daniel had his Eagle Scout Court of Honor.
We had it in a friend's backyard. His best friend, Jacob Forbush. They have mis-spent many hours blowing things up and causing general havoc there.
We had about 50 friends and family come for the event, it was so great to see how many people wanted to share this momentous occasion with him.
The ceremony was short and sweet because lets be honest, as with any gathering of people, it is all about the food. Daniel chose his favorite snacks, little smokies in b-b-q sauce, hummus and pita chips, pico de gallo, and chili cheese dip. Of course we had a costco cake as well. In hind sight I should have ordered two of those, it went quickly and Carlos was quick to point out he did not get any. Duh!! It was a gathering of Boy Scouts, that grab and growl rules.
The father's pin will be epoxied to Dan's headstone this weekend. Once and Eagle dad, always an Eagle dad.
