Pinewood Derby 2016

Pinewood Derby was this weekend!  The boys had a great time!  Both Andrew and Daniel raced this year.  Their designs were very similar, and they both used metallic paint.  Andrew's car did so well that he placed 2nd overall.  Daniel came in 5th, and he won quite a few heats.  There were 16 boys in the race altogether.  Andrew's trophy is really cool--it's made with a real piston from a race car. 

Here is Mom putting graphite in the wheels before the race

Great job, boys!  They were great sports and cheered for each other.  We all had a wonderful time!

Here's Daniel, just being Daniel

Michael was featured in Phoenix Business Journal.  You have to subscribe to read the article, but I thought I'd at least post the picture.

Andrew wanted this Knex Roller Coaster for Christmas.  He immediately started putting it together, and he did the whole thing by himself.  Thanks for the gift, Papa and Nana!
