My Dad was chosen to receive the Silver Beaver Award for his excellent contributions to the Boy Scouting Program on April 21, 2012. So even though Ty had to work, Josie and I drove to Shelley Friday night. My whole family was there, which was cool! It was a really neat ceremony! I had no idea how many people got the award. It's the highest achievement you can get in the scouting program. My great-grandma's late husband had received it over 30 years ago, so I knew about it, but it was really cool to watch my own Dad get it. I'm really proud of him and his love for the BSA.
Saturday morning before the program, we decided to go to the Tautphaus Park Zoo in IF. Josie had sooo much fun! She had never been to a zoo before, since we don't have one close to us. She loved it!!
