This weekend I helped take Pack 187 Cub Scouts to the
Edgerton Explorit Center.  It is a hands on science explore center in
Aurora Nebraska, the home town of scientist Harold Edgerton the
inventor of flash photography.  We got to take part in 3 experiments
and of course what boy does not like to see things explode?

Sparks Flew-when the boys got to meet the Van de Graff generator.
This demonstraion got a little "shocking" and "hair raising" when
we learn about electricity.  The boys thought the best part was when
the leaders had to go up and get a little shock!

We also got to have an "Arctic Blast" with some super cold
chemistry.  Learning about dry ice & liquid nitrogen's incredible freezing
power.  And of course we will not forget the hydrogen balloon "explosion".

The green screen video game!

This was an amazing trip for the boys-something I am sure they
will always remember, who knew science could be so much fun!!

On Sunday we had our annual Pack 187 Pinewood Derby Race.
It is always fun to see the great designs and creative things the Cub
Scouts make with a small block of wood!

My little Tiger Den-they all did a Wonderful job for their first
Pinewood Derby.  The Overall winner of the night was even
a first year Tiger Scout!   

This year Riley made a Wii Remote he won Most Creative Design
and got third place in the Webelo Den.
Chandler made a Half Pipe with Skate Board, he won Best in Show.
We are so proud of them for their hard work but most of
 all their good sportsmanship. 

So if you are not tired of me going on and on and are still reading you
don't want to miss this part.  If I have not told you lately-I am so in love
with my crockpot.  With being gone during the day all weekend I got
great use of the crockpot.  Sunday I made a new recipe that was so easy.
Loaded Bake Potato Soup
3 cans of chicken broth
1 can of cream of chicken soup
5-6 med. potatos diced
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
-put in crock pot on low for 6-8 hours
one hour before you are ready to eat add 8 oz cream cheese
serve with chopped bacon and shredded cheddar cheese.
