So last week was Dallas' Pinewood Derby. Travis helped Dallas design, shape and build his car, and then Mom took over with the decorating. The boys decided to go with a space rocket theme and this is what we came up with. What do you think?
Exciting, right? Just look at my boy's face, if that doesn't show excitement then I don't know what does.
Actually that was more of a "Mom get out of my face with the camera" look. Oh well. Here's a few more cars that I really liked. My favorites (besides ours of course) were the Hershey Car and the Dinosaur Car. Very impressive.
Unfortunately for Dallas his car had a lot more style than speed, and seeing how the Pinewood Derby isn't exactly a beauty contest we didn't exactly win. That's okay, there's always next year! The boys still had a ton of fun though, and we had a good time watching.
Even though Dallas didn't place in the top 3 he still took home the award for "Most out of this world car." The boys all got an award with a medal made out of licorice rope and a York Peppermint Paddy. Clever, cute and culinarily pleasing.
Now there's the happy face.
