Photo Glimpses – Pinewood Derby

(remember, each week I give a quick glimpse into the non-crafty side of life…)
This past weekend was the Pinewood Derby – not too many pictures because I only stayed for the first heat and Trevor was involved in helping with the event.  There were lots of fun cars:

 My son’s was the silver one with green vinyl (this is when crafting tools like the Cameo turn cool in a 9 yr old’s eyes – I cut out zig zags, a number, and his name pinstripe on the side)

 The kids watching in the crowd – do you like how my daughter has to have her camera everywhere? – wonder where she got that from….

So, enough suspense yet?  Wondering the results??  Remember the Tips for a Fast Pinewood Derby Car?

Well, they worked!  He came in first place overall in the whole pack and is super excited – now he gets to participate in Districts!

 Oh, and I busted out the vinyl on the trophies this year (the edge you can’t see says “2012”) – we went again with a matchbox car painted, stuck to a wood base – they’re a hit!!

    I was a Cub Scout and Webelos den leader and the Pinewood Derby was always a hoot! Now I’m an Asst. Scoutmaster (how did I get talked into THAT?) and we help run them for the Cubbies. Glad to see your son and family are involved in scouting!
