Last Blue & Gold Banquet

In February we celebrated our last Blue & Gold Banquet with Jarin making Webelos Rank.  He will cross over into Boy Scouts in December (or sooner).
The Great Cake Bake contest was in full effect this year and the theme was Mardi Gras.  I put a lot of effort into this cake, knowing it would be our last year to enter the contest.  Unfortunately, I didn't win, but the prizes were not too good this year anyway, so I wasn't disappointed.  This was the cake I came up with...
 Our Webelos Scout.  He wasn't too happy about the face paint as he said it got in his eyes.
 After the ceremony, they did a parade around the gym with the Webelos riding their scooters.  I found the wig at the costume shop.  It had lights that flashed in it.
 The cake that beat mine out.  This lady is a professional fondant maker and has won 3 years in a row.  Kinda makes it hard to win with this kind of competition!
 Our meal of cuban roasted pork was cooking below the coils (whole pig).
 Justin got in on the fun too.  This is him with the Cubmaster.  Justin is the Den Chief for his den, so helps out with their activities as well.

 The kids played games and they hired a juggler for entertainment.  
He's pretending not to drop them on the Cubmaster!
 A fun evening!
