Pinewood Derby!



Dust has been flying around the house for a few days...we LOVE what Dad helps us create!


My kitchen has been overtaken with brushes, paints, sandpaper, the Dremel...


The boys have worked HARD! Sawyer had a lot of dots to make with the end of his paintbrush for this awesome Gila Monster!



Miller painted, asked for help, painted, asked for help, painted...


And his persistent efforts paid off with a very cute "King" from Cars. 


Cooper made Ramone from Cars 


Sawyer was up first...


The Bear Den is LARGE (20), and then there's the Tigers, and the Wolves, and the Webelos, so the boys had to wait...


And wait...


And wait...


 And wait!


And new this year was the Den Leader race...the Pink Panther was debuted!


Finally! The open division!


Go Cooper!


Open division is kind of tough...single elimination.
They wait for a LONG time and their turn is over after one race!


 But they still had smiles!


 The Princess claimed the Pink Panther (kitty) as royal property...


Thus, not allowed to race.
Princesses only cheer.


Congratulations to Sawyer...Best Use of Paint, and 2nd Place, Bears!

Waiting, waiting, waiting, and then 20 seconds it's over. Reminds me of the long wait lines at the amusement park and then the ride is over before you know it. Bottom line: it is totally worth it! Congrat's Sawyer, that is one super awesome dotty Gila monster! Love those eyes on #43 & Ramone. Cute pink panther car, too, Mom/Breyer!
