Usually these days I have volleyball practice on Wednesday evenings.
This last Wednesday however we did not.
You see once a month there is a pack meeting on Wednessday. This time it was a BBQ, so we ended up saying goodbye to two of our Weblos, I mean Karl’s weblos, as they got their arrow of light.
Here is Karl with Ian Wood, his co-Webelo leader. Yeah, he is really tall.
Here is our neighbor Jared with his Arrow of Light.
As soon as the ceremony was finished, we drove over to the BYU bell tower. The tower is celebrating 40 year anniversary. It was actually erected in 1975 to celebrate BYU’s 100th anniversary. The celebration was a concert of dance and song.
Adam was a part of a group that was playing along with the tower. He played as a part of a Gamelan.
According to Wikipedia:
Gamelan is the traditional ensemble music of Java and Bali in Indonesia, made up predominantly of percussive instruments. The most common instruments used are metallophones played by mallets and a set of hand-played drums called kendhang which register the beat.
We arrived just as they stared.
Watch this short video to get a feel of the sound.
Lucas somehow slept through the whole thing.
Adam after the show.
Well, we had been in such a hurry to get to Adam’s performance that we didn’t eat at the BBQ. So we were right there, so we went to El Azteca. Which it turned out was their last night open. 🙁
We bought the HUGE bag of cinnamon sugar chips.
All the guac we could eat.
I finally got the qesaritto. A Quesadilla burrito. SOOO GOOD, and never again. 🙁
Then home for bed time with these two.
A full and weird night. A good night.
