Tonight was the big race! We LOVE the pinewood Derby! This years car we made in honor of the winter Olympics and designed a bobsled of sorts. The only problem was we couldn't find any helmet head dudes so we bought the cheap .97 corps army dudes and popped their little heads right off and stuck them in. For weights we glues in buckshot behind the guys. The words on the sides were done with making memories rub ons...so cute! I don't have an accurate number on how many boys raced because there were more cars than what the picture shows...Somewhere between 24 and 30 I think. Who knows? Cole's car was pretty darn fast and came in 4th place over all. I think that's great for how many boys competing. The boys all had a great time and I got lots of pictures. I'm feeling kind of sad about things since Cole is my baby and he only has one more year in cub scouts. I'm really going to miss the pinewood derby after all these years helping all my boys with their cars.
