Pinewood Derby

This past Thursday was the Pinewood Derby for Diego. He was very excited. We were ready for an exciting night. Here is Diego with his car. He went for the simple sleek look.
The track. Nothing fancy. I had to laugh that is was held up with hymn books and put together with pvc pipe. Not what I was expecting but it did the job. It was a very much laid back race than I was picturing, no weigh in or anything. This is the heat that Diego placed 1st. He was happy! I was nervous how he'd react if he didn't get a good finish but he did well even when he came in 3rd on one heat. He was so good!
Overall, he tied for 3rd place. Not bad for our first time.
His car won "Judge's Favorite"
So today the boys were out playing with our neighbor and they decided to have their own Derby race with our cars. It was a good laugh!
Christian...the old man driver.
Anthony vs. Christian
Anthony had me and my neighbor cracking up as he drove his car. It was Anthony meets the Flinstones. His little feet were trying to go so fast!

Blue & Gold Banquet

Last Thursday Diego had his Blue and Gold Banquet for Cub Scouts. Each scout had to bring a cake and Diego chose to make a Yoshi cake. He did this all on his own. He did really well and really enjoyed making it. It was a proud moment!!
He got the award for "Most Artistic" for his cake.

On our last snow storm the boys went to the hill at my parents house and had some good runs down the hill. Christian is wiped out!
