Pinewood Derby....on ice!

 Tyler entered the world of scouts this year, which brings with it the adventures of the Pinewood Derby.  This is a day Nate has been waiting for.  He and his dad made some epic cars back in his day.  Unfortunately we didn't have hardly anytime to spend on it, but Tyler and Nate were still able to make a pretty nice car.  Nate also helped four other boys make their cars.  Our garage was hopping that day.    Tyler's is the aero-dynamic looking one.  He came up with the design and cut it by himself.
 After all of it, Nate decided he had enough extra supplies that he made a car of his own for fun.  His is the one that looks like a big toe.  Get it...  "Toe-truck" ?  I like the painted toenail.  It also has knuckle creases cut in.
Tyler and his friend Josh (one of the boys Nate helped) waiting at the finish line.  Some of them were a photo finish.

 Tyler's is the one just pulling ahead. 
 It was a fun evenng, although a lot of people's emotions were quite high.  Tyler ended up getting third place.  Most importantly he had a great time and had some bonding time with dad.
In April, we decided to drive to Denver and surprise the kids by going to Disney on Ice.  I think it was a success :)

 Lion King was a sight to behold!
 Headlock or hug??
 Jasmine and Aladdin on the flying carpet.

Cool action shot with Goofy and the fabulous original four
On the ride home. I can't remember the last time all four kids were sleeping at the same time in the car.  It was pretty awesome!
