This is Zach's car. He painted it black and put cool fire stickers on it.
Riley painted his car blue (shocking, I know...) and found this cool dinosaur skeleton sticker. Zach let him use one of his flame stickers too.
Lily's car was a little more unconventional. ;0)
You don't see too many pink cars at the scout pinewood derby, especially one with rainbows and fairies! (Although there was one other pink car made by another scout's sister.)
Here are most of the scout's cars:
Here are some of the outlaw cars:
Zach and Riley were among 22 scouts competing. Lily had 6 other cars racing with hers. They were all excited to get racing!
Zach was the first of our kids to race.
He won his first heat!!
Riley was after Zach:
He won his first heat too!
Lily finally got a chance to race. She was too short to put her car up there. :0)
She waited very patiently for the cars to come down:
She won her first heat too! I just don't think she realized it until someone said good job to her.
After that Zach lost his second heat. He wasn't completely out, but he would be if he lost the next one. Riley won his next one, but then he lost too. Lily lost her next 2 races and was out, but she didn't really care. She was just having fun! =)
Zach was very nervous when he was up for the race that would let him move forward or knock him out. This was him when he realized he was still in it:
After that Riley won his race too to stay in. Then both boys were up against each other. Whoever lost would get fourth place.
Riley lost, but he was such a good sport about it. He was happy his brother got to move forward. Such a nice brother!
Zach went on to the next race and lost, but that's OK, because he came in 3rd place overall! Not too bad for only his third year doing it.
