Pinewood Derby

Last night was Graeme's first ever Pinewood Derby.  He and Brian worked very hard on his car and I think the final product was pretty darn impressive.  Behold, the Triceracar!

I'm not sure what was most impressive, the frill and horns or the fact that it weighed exactly 5 ounces.

Graeme was certainly pleased with the final product.

Unfortunately, the Triceracar had more style than speed.  I thought Graeme would be really upset when his car didn't win, but I think he just really enjoyed watching it go.  He was very cute when they started giving out the awards; as they called names he became sadder and sadder because he thought he wasn't going to get any award.  When they finally called his name his whole face lit up!  He got a certificate for the "Best Use of Imagination" which he wants to frame and hang on his wall :)

After the Scouts had all raced, they let anybody else who had a car jump in and race.  Chloe made a car last year that she brought.  It's very pink.

Her car was very fast and she ended up beating everyone else!

The kids all had a great time, but we felt bad afterwards that Kai didn't have a car to race.  Oh well, he'll be a Cub Scout too, one day!
