D is for Derby

Pinewood derby, that is!

I have been doing my abc posts about our favorite games, but I am going to do something else this week. I think it's fitting for this letter, and it's kind of a game, I guess. It's a contest to see who wins, so it fits. This was Aric's first pinewood derby, and Aaron's 3rd (also his last year), so it was kind of fun to see them race together. They both did really well in the races this year.

Aric won 6 out of 6 races. His car did amazing the whole time, and didn't really have any problems.

Aaron won 5 out of 6 races. He knew he wasn't going to probably do as well as last year (he won 1st place), but he was being a good sport.

 Luckily one of those 6 races they got to race each other. That was lucky because every boy didn't race every boy. They each went only 6 times, and this is the one race that Aaron lost.

 Well, imagine their surprise when Aric was announced 2nd place!

And, Aaron was announced 1st place!

They were both confused, as were we, but they walked up and collected their prizes and posed for pictures. Aaron's face when they announced him 1st place was awesome because he totally wasn't expecting it. I wish we had got it on camera.

Well, it turns out they got the brothers and their cars mixed up. So, really it should have been the other way around. I think Aric was a little disappointed because he knew he had won every race, but hey at least they have a fun story to always remember the year of pinewood derby mix up.

  1. Congrats on your boys doing so well with their Pinewood Derby cars. I remember those days fondly. My only boy is 16 now and earned his Eagle Scout almost 3 years ago.

  2. Strangely sometimes the best/fastest car designs for the derby are the really simple ones. My son came in first when he was a tiger cub and he was so very happy!

  3. We had the boys in Royal Rangers for a few years and participated in two pinewood derbies. Our younger middle won a nice little trophy (first for his class or something), but I really like your trophies for displaying their winning cars. Great D word.
