August 5th, 2010 - Day 13

Our last day started off early at the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Washington D.C. where the boys were treated to a breakfast buffet at the Embassy of Rock. However the real treat for most of the scouts was the gift shop, as most spent their last few dollars buying up as many souvenirs as they could with the money they had left.

After breakfast we noticed we were running a little bit ahead of schedule so the adult leaders got together to discuss a possible plan to make good use of our time. Thinking that Fort McHenry would be our best bet we departed to the famous fort near our airport in Baltimore. Opting for the free self-guided tour the boys were set free to roam the grounds were the famous song The Star-Spangled Banner was written by Francis Scott Key.

With our last stop being the airport, we were almost home and back to normal lives. As we sat and waited to board our plane back to Kansas City, we couldn’t help but notice the amount of our contingent that had more than one person from a single family on our trip. Making for one last photo opportunity we gathered all those families that had multiple members in our contingent for a group photo before we made our way onto the plane. For only a couple of hours later we were back home and safely in the arms of our loving family members that were anxiously awaiting our return.
