Zoom! Zoom!


It's Pinewood Derby time!!!! This was Riley's first go at building a "cub car", as my dear Canadian spouse calls it, and he did a fantastic job. They did a Swiss tournament -- don't ask, I don't know, but it's supposed to be supremely fair. He made it to the semi-finals where he lost to the car that eventually won the whole shebang. Afterward, in free-racing, he beat the other kid who lost in the semi-finals so he's the "Unofficial Third Place Champion". Whatever. I think in free racing he also beat the Second place kid, but who's counting. The winner, a nine year old autistic boy, was the clear winner. No one ever beat that car all night. I'd like to draw your attention to the certificate in the top picture. Riley won a special prize for "Most Artistic Car". Yep. That's my boy. Boo Yah!!

  1. I'm reading, just haven't commented in awhile. Love the new pic up top. OK, that parkour thing looks insane! Obviously invented by teenage boys... or "grown-up" teenage boys. And the bra comment totally cracked me up. Classic!!
