On Your Mark, Get Set, Go!

On saturday, the boys had their first pine wood derby
experience.  They were so excited and really had
no clue what it was all about.  Here is Larry Denzil helping
them paint their cars.  Larry Denzil cheated and bought
the already cut kits at AC Moore.  This is what happens
when you procrastinate to the night before and don't really 
know what to design with your block of wood.

Here is their painted cars.  Larry named his
camo truck and Xander was calling his
speedy wheels.
Here the boys are checking their cars in.
Xander was so thrilled that his was exactly 5 ounces.

All the derby cars from pack 57.  I think everyone
did an amazing job.
Xander got to race first.  He won for
the tiger cubs.  He was smiling from ear to ear.

That is Xander's car in the lead.

Larry getting ready for his race.
Larry too went undefeated for the wolf pack.
And the winner is......
Here are the 3rd, 1st and 2nd place winners
overall.  Not bad for their very first pine wood derby.
Xander was a little unhappy because
Larry's car beat his.  He told me that Larry made his
car heavier. Just so you know, Larry and
Xander's cars were neck and neck
in their race, but it is all who wins
I suppose.
That is brotherly love for you.

I have some video, but I won't bore you with that.
I hope everyone had a marvelous weekend.
