Pinewood Derby - and the winners are.....!!!!!

Father - First Place (family)  
James 1st place Webelos and 2nd Place overall   
Alex (tiger cub)  1st place overall

I am so proud of my guys!   James came in first place in the Webelos division and came in second place overall.    Father came in first place in the Family and Friends division.  James received a trophy for Best Painted Car and he came in second by only a thousandth of a second.

Alex - 2.556 and James 2.557

The Competition

By the end of the races, all the Webelos were bouncing up and down in their chairs, cheering for James and chanting Mario, Mario, Mario.

But they were equally excited for tiger Cub Alex

Really!  I came in Second!!!

Best Painted - Mario and 2nd Place Trophy

I was equally proud of father who worked very hard on his car who came in first in the family and friends division

The trophy is very neat and he gets to keep it for one year.  He gets to add a tire with his name and date, then pass it on to the winner next year. 

So, what do the kids do to celebrate afterwards

Play Nintendo Ds together.  It has a neat feature that if you are within 65 feet of each other, you can play against each other.

Meanwhile, Proud mom gets to carry everything
