Spencer's 1st Pinewood Derby!

*Saturday was a lot of fun as Spencer had his very 1st Pinewood Derby for Cub Scouts! The race was very organized with an awesome track complete with computer system, and big screen for us to watch results on. I loved this cute race car driver board someone painted for the boys to stick their heads in.  

*Tim & Spence came up with idea of making the car into a Humvee with Chewbaca sitting on top complete with gun. I helped Spence paint on the camouflage. I think it turned out pretty good considering this was our...I mean Spencer's;) 1st car.
Look closely and you can see Spencer's car winning 1st place in this race. Since the other races he got 2nd, 3rd & 4th place, this was his most exciting moment. I wish I could've got a picture of him right after this. He stood up, did a "double pump fist" with his arms saying "Yeah!"
After the races we had the award ceremony where he won "Most Unique Car." Then his 2nd favorite part of the day...Krispy Kreme doughnuts. (Just happened to be that we had also eat them for breakfast that morning at home & then he went to a party later that day with more Krispy Kremes..3 times in 1 day!)

Aw, this is adorable! ...er....I mean, this is rugged and manly! (Is he to that stage yet? :D)

I've always heard about the Pinewood Derby and such from tv shows and other people's kids. Jonny is 7 years older than me, so I have no personal experiences of this phenomenon. So it makes me really happy that you posted this! Thanks, dear!
