The Big Race

This weekend Rex had his big Pinwood Derby with his cubscout Pack.  He and Justin had been working hard on his car.  They researched the design online and Rex did all of the sanding.  He picked the color and decals and helped with every portion he could. We thought it was best not to turn him loose on the powertools quite yet but he did get to use the drill. 

  Justin and I are very proud of Rex and the work he put in to make the Zoom Car.

We were ready for the big race!

Good luck kisses for Big Rex

Cars take your mark

Picture the checkered flag or the sound of the gun -  we are off to the races!

The first Heat was the best of the night for the Zoom Car

Things slowed down a bit after the first heat.  Rex had a great night cheering for his buddy Mason that ended up first in the Tigers and 3rd over all in the Pack.

4th Place in the Tigers

Rex was a bit bummed he didn't win a medal but he was a very good sport and cheered on his buddies.  The plans for Pinewood Derby 2011 are already in the works. 


  1. Next year they had better watch out for us, Rex! Very proud of all the hardwork he put into his car.

  2. Your boys are so cute. I love the kisses, that's how Lucas gives them too. It looks like Rex had a great time!

    Looking forward to reading more!
