This weekend was our first Pinewood Derby. The boys had a great time making their cars (and we made one for Bitty too).
Bearhug's car won an award for the "Sportiest car" and Cuddlebug's car won "Coolest sponsored car" (his was the only one patterned after a real NASCAR car).
I am so proud of them for all the hard work, and also for showing good sportsmanship. They were a little disappointed at not winning overall but they did not get upset, and they took the time to congratulate their peers who won. Way to go boys!
Unfortunately, Little Bitty didn't do quite so well, dh had to take him out to the car because he became obsessed with wanting to touch the race track, push the buttoms, etc. which would have disrupted the race. I'm thankful to dh for doing that so I could stay and take pictures :).
After the race, we took them out to lunch and then home for an afternoon playing in the sprinklers, because it was a gorgeous day outside (over 80 degrees!).
Pictures to come as soon as get them uploaded :).
