Wanna take a field trip: Happy Birthday Boy Scouts

Took a little ride to the city the evening...
what a wonderful evening for a stroll.

2010 is the 100 year anniversary of the Boy Scout Organzation.
We know a couple things about scouting in Andersonville.

Mr. Fun is a Eagle Scout.
Mr. Fun's dad is an Eagle Scout.
Mr. Fun's grandfather is an Eagle Scout.
The Boy is on his way to being an Eagle Scout.

In honor of the 100 year anniversary,
Norman Rockwell paintings are taking a field trip
to 12 cities across the country. 
Kansas City is was one of them.

I had to go.

I have this freaky thing about seeing paintings up close.
See the brush strokes.  It is like I am talking to the artist directly.
Friends, meet Norman.  Norman, meet us...

It was held at the Liberty Memorial World War I Museum.

After days of cleared up just for us.

A great quality of the Scouting program....
rolling up their sleeves and going to work.
Notice how the Le Fleur looks like angel wings.
