Radio Disney Rocks!

Brandon and his Cub Scout Den went on a field trip to the Radio Disney studio to pass off the communication portion of their Tiger badge. He had so much fun! They got to see how everything works, but the most exciting part was making their own little blurb that will play on the air.
Here's how it went:
Brandon: What's up Sacramento!!
Ricky: This is Cub Scout Pack 507 from Roseville
Jacob: On Radio Disney AM 1470 Sacramento.
Samson: The only radio station that plays your music, your way.
Den 9: Radio Disney Rocks!

Snow much FUN!

We had a GREAT time at Brandon's Cub Scout snow trip to Soda Springs today. It was actually snowing and we had to use chains on the way up. And Nate decided sometime last night to remove the boys' jackets from the ski bag so they had to borrow various extra items from his den leader who amazingly had a closet in the trunk of her car. Seriously, her son is 6 and she had a size 24 month jacket to fit Nate. None of the boys looked like they belonged skiing in these outfits, but at least they were warm. We went tubing for a couple hours in the morning and then after lunch Brandon and Zach headed over to practice their skiing in the magic carpet area. They both did so great that they decided to try snowboarding too...they did great with that too. (They seem to have great balance...wonder why they can't ride bikes without training wheels?) Brandon says he likes skiing best (that's my boy), but Zach said, "Dad, I don't want to ski anymore. I just want to snowboard. I'm a boarder now." We're in trouble now. It was a great day and we practically had the place to ourselves. Definitely worth playing hooky from school and work.
