Pinewood Derby 2009

Seth and I (with a little help from Nate--thanks!) made the MOST awesome car for the Pinewood Derby. Seth LOVES the older style Camero's, so that is what we made! Nate cut it out and helped with some of the axel work, then Seth and I sanded, painted, taped, painted some more, and polished! We thought it looked pretty cool, and he won the award for "Most Realistic-looking Car."

We did a few little "extra" things and ended up with a pretty fast little car! We were just hoping for better than last year. (Unfortunately last years car looked really cool, but was super slow!) We weren't disappointed, he ended up in second place. He was pretty nervous to race...

But he won the first one! His car is #4.

He was pretty excited and ran down to get his car (sorry about the demon eyes!).But due to a "technical difficulty", they reran this race (one of the cars lost a wheel on the way) and the next race he barely lost. We still have next year to make our "perfect" car! And it was fun to see all of the cool cars!
