Pinewood Derby Sunday!

Yesterday was Connor's first Pinewood Derby. He and Eddie put in a lot of time making his car and they finally got to see what it was made of. Now, if you have a cub scout you know the rules say your car cannot be over 5.0 ounces. Well lookie here! 5.0 exactly! And yes, the driver is a lego. It seems like yesterday that we were here for Zachary's first Derby and Connor was a three year old toddler who I had to chase after. Fast forward four years. Here he is lining up his car for his first race. He didn't win, but he sure had a lot of fun trying. The best part, everyone got a participation trophy. He was ecstatic...it was his first trophy ever!
Right after the races we headed out to see the Cleveland Cavaliers play their last home game before the playoffs begin. We all had a great time and the Cavs even won! Sorry, I can't remember the score. We have Indians tickets for Tuesday and Wednesday night too. Can we fit anymore games in this week?

This is a layout I did for Nicole Harpers challenge on the Studio Calico blog. It was to use numbers. It is quite simple but I love how it turned out. Plus, it got me to write down some feelings about my oldest turning 10. His mama was having a hard time with this one. But it's all good now.
Don't forget to check out Karla Dudley's layouts using the April All Moments Remembered kit.
She made the coolest mini!

Love the LO you did for Nik's challenge. I tried to do one, but my weekend didn't work out that way.

I've never heard of such a thing ie the derby, but how fun. That car is way too cute and he used a lego man. Ha. Lovely layout too.

Your layout is awesome...very cool picture!

Great car with its cute little lego man driver! I'm sure he had a fun time. My husband still has his cars from when he was in boy scouts, too!
