In like a lion...

The Troop had quite the whirlwind weekend by holding the May campout, walking in the Helotes Cornyval Parade and taking part in the Helotes Market Days.  We already planned to march in the parade when we were invited to participate in Market Days also.  Since we were going to be in the area all weekend we turned it into a campout downtown.  The boys enjoyed the mile stroll along Bandera Road while carrying the KJ97 banner and waving to the crowds.  We feasted on taquitos while a couple of troop families manned a food booth on our behalf.  We also setup a Gaga Pit in front of the band stand and invited all kids, young and young at heart, to play with us.

We finished the weekend by completing a merit badge, playing word games, and making s'mores.  Some families came to join us throughout the weekend to partake in the festivities and visit with the troop.  What a wonderful weekend this was.  We were truly blessed with fantastic weather, friendship and family all weekend.
