Pinewood Derby

Last night was Andrew's first Pinewood Derby. He and Nathan had gone out to Grandpa Smith's home last Wednesday night to cut out the most aerodynamic car possible. Next, they went to Hobby Lobby and found the perfect "skin" to finish the look he was going for. (Nathan says it is the best $7.49 he's ever spent.) The "skin" adhesives to the wood with just a bit of water. They next painted the "driver" , added a tail fin and it was complete!


Ready, Set, Go!

Awaiting his car at the finish line.

Andrew's car raced 5 or 6 times and averaged around 202 MPH. (Yes, the track is SO high tech now that it can measure how fast the cars go.) WOW!! He had a pretty fast car! Everyone raced - Everyone was a winner - Everyone got a patch for their accomplishment! What a night!

Nathan did a great job announcing for the evening! Do you see where our cute kids get their cuteness?

Nathan did a great job and Tyler had a blast! That is good to know that you can get a skin for the car. I will definitely keep that in mind for next year!
