Pinewood Derby

Garrett got to participate in our ward's pinewood derby. This is something I was dreading and couldn't wait to get over with. Garrett and Blaine, on the other hand, were looking forward to it. This is Garrett's car that he and Blaine made. He was so proud and so excited to race it.

Remi and Jayson came to watch. The scout leaders set up the heats so everyone got to race everybody else. Lots of racing but it was fair that way. They kept track of who won the most races and those were the winners. Everyone got an award anyway. Garrett won "most realistic." The bottom of his car had weights on it that resembled the bottom of a real car.
Way to go Garrett! Glad you had so much fun. I'm glad its over!!!

Ooh down and derby!! I just don't get into the whole scout thing- but glad that someone enjoys it! I love the look on Jaysons' face!

Ya, both him and Remi never looked overly thrilled but I kept asking them if they were bored and they always told me no. :)
