Cancun 2014

Here are a few pictures from the trip John and I took to Cancun in March thanks to Arnold and Denise's trip to Europe and Grandma.  It was a great 5 days even though we were there during spring break!  We enjoyed speaking Spanish and watching the reactions to John's Spanish ("you speak Spanish so well"). We had a few classic "Stovall" moments which made me realize that perhaps I am the cause of many of those moments.  That was a humbling revelation.  It was hard to leave the kids and maybe we will take them next time we go. I guess that shows that we enjoyed it since we are already talking about "next time".

Pinewood Derby Champ 2014

John has finally hit his groove in pinewood derby car making (special thanks to Dan and his book recommendation).  Ryan took home top honors this year following in Jacob's footsteps from last year.  Ryan named his car "Shadow".  Congrats Ryan!  John and Ryan decided that next year (our last in cub scouts) they will help someone else in the pack with their car.
