The Pinewood Derby 2012

There it is. #13 The War Tank. I was so proud of Tyson for building this car, mostly by himself and doing most of the paint job as well. He was bouncing off the walls all day waiting for the race to start. There were 40 cars that raced and they were all so unique and fun to look at. Not only did they have the race, but the scouts got to vote on the cars that were the most patriotic, most realistic, best paint job, fastest looking and most creative. If you look at car #15 it is the Nimbus 2000 off of Harry Potter. What a creative idea!

Tyson was sitting right in front to watch his car race.

It was quite a track and all computerized. They had a big screen up above where they showed the winners as they crossed the finish line. I was impressed at how high tech this thing was turning out to be. We didn't win the derby, but Tyson had a great time cheering on his car and the cars of his little buddies.

He was picked by his peers of having the Most Patriotic car in the race. He received this big metal and was all smiles. You would have thought he was the overall winner of the derby. And to me, that is all that mattered. He was so happy!

Taryn loves to be in pictures with her brother. So proud of you Tyson. Your first Pinewood Derby and you did awesome!!
