Pinewood Derby

Tonight was the long awaited Pinewood Derby.  Ever since I mentioned going to the kids they have been over the moon excited to go.  Asking if today was the day and today I got to say, yes!

I was asked to help out with refreshments and the kids room during the Pinewood Derby tonight.  We had popcorn, pretzels, M&Ms, grapes, and apples.  It was a hit and ended up making a big mess.  Haha!  At least everyone had fun.  :o)

Payton and Lincoln were so excited to see the track in person.  I told them it was like a super huge version of Austin's little ramp race track that was as long as the gym.

Since we were there early the kids got to run a test car down the practice track.  That may have been the highlight of the evening.

Checking out the official track with daddy.

Waiting for the derby to start.

It has begun!  Lincoln watched the whole thing until the finals and then disappeared into the kids room to watch the movie.  But he did tell Dave that he wanted to make his own derby car for next time so he could run it down the practice track.  Good times!
