On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country;
To obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
There have been 16 Jamborees. The first one was in 1935 to celebrate 25 years of scouting but it had to be postponed til 1937 due to a polio outbreak. At the jambo in 1937 the opening campfire was started with flint and steel. Scouts from all 48 states brought wood for the fire. There were 27,232 scouts at that Jamboree camping on the mall in Washington, DC.
Carl went to the National Jamboree in 1969 in Idaho. He saw Neil Armstrong land on the moon from a big screen TV while there. Andrew went to the Jamboree in 1997 at Fort AP Hill where it has been held since 1981. John was able to attend in 2005 where he had his Eagle Board of Review.
I am proud of all the scouts in our family!

The whole group standing
I think this was meant to be John and Marisa but someone else got in the picture
Marisa and Robert
I have no idea and I don't think I want to know either
ah, much better
This was about the last 'good' one I got and then...
Again, I have no idea
I think this is the response when I said that this was the last picture I was going to take.Cara moved today to CO to start a new job. She will be missed, she is already missed.

Here is a calm moment in the pool.
Saturday, July 10, 2010
You know you are on the Redneck Riviera when the condo you are staying in provides a shopping cart for you to use to bring up all your stuff. We stayed at Windrift and the one we had was really nice. Aunt Marian and Uncle Sherrell had a different experience. They ended up in a six bedroom/six bathroom 3 level house that was nice.
This was the scene at Aunt Marian's pool.
Grandmother took us all to Books a Million and bought us all some books. Here are John's and Robert's
Here are Carl's, Kaitlin's, Marisa's and mine. I can't locate the picture of Andrew and Taylor's but will post as soon as I do. I have everybody's pictures to look through and that is over 1000.
This is outside our condo. The workers began around 6 with the cleanup. The sand is stained. We saw about 60 folks on the beach with maybe 25 in the water the whole time we were there. It was sad and broke my heart. I wanted to sit out on a beach chair under an umbrella and go into the water whenever I wanted, I wanted to see my children in the water, I wanted to see Robert in the water- he hasn't see the beach since he was 4 but that didn't happen.
This picture was taken by our server at The Blind Mule in Mobile. We found it on the list of 100 places to eat in Alabama. As we were driving to it, I was not sure I was going to get out of the car. The speciality was shrimp and grits. They were outstanding- not creamy and with a cajun flavor. I would recommend this restaurant in the day time. It was packed when we got there and the only seats left were in the bar and you know us!
Lots of Red, White and Blue on the Fourth. Tanner took this picture of Kaitlin and Marisa on Uncle Alec's boat dock.
Meredith took some pictures of us. Our first thought was on the beach but then we decided on the boat dock. The colors below will be the colors in the wedding.
Here is the reason for the family reunion. Grandmother and five of her six children were together. There were 24 of us together. We did miss the beach but the Funroes can have fun anywhere. More pictures tomorrow

playing in Uncle Alec and Aunt Sonia's pool. I loved the view except when the guy came by in the American Flag throng and mooned us all.
Tessa loved the blueberry ice cream.
Grandmother and her baby!more pictures and stories to follow...I am still recovering. It was a great vacation.
