Pinewood Derby

Dallin participated in his first pinewood derby this year.  He has been in scouts for almost two years, but for some reason they didn’t do it last year.  He went online and looked at lots of different car designs and picked it out.  Then Nathan drew it on the block of wood and helped him cut it out.


Dallin did all of the painting himself.  He wanted a powder blue car.


And then the night came for the race!  First the weigh in:


He and Hayden are the only bears, so they raced each other. I think Dallin was a little nervous.


Dallin’s car won!  Then they raced again in different lanes.  See that big smile on Haden’s face.


It never left him, even though his car came in second.  Instead of being sad that he lost, he became Dallin’s biggest fan!  It was so cute and so sweet.  That is a young man who truly knows how to be a good friend and a good sport.  We told Dallin afterward that he should try to be just like Hayden!

Then the winners of the different age groups raced.  It is hard to see, but Dallin won by a centimeter or so.


This is Layton saying how “AWESOME” Dallin’s car is.


And this is what Mandy did the whole time:


She was really in to the Pinewood Derby, can’t you tell?

Dallin was very proud of his winning car. It was a very fun night!
