Pinewood Derby

It is Pine Wood Derby time again.
Henry got creative with his shape and paint job. 

Henry always likes to pick a fun shape for his cars. He doesn't like to just make a car that looks like everyone else's. He did a shark last year and this year the watermellon was his choice. I admit I added some of the details in the painjob. I added the black seeds and the lighter green stripes on the rind but this car was his design.

 Like last year this wasn't the most airodynamic car.  The weight distribution wasn't the best for speed therefore his car didn't win any of the races it was in. I was happy he car passed the finish line each time it was sent down the track.

His wasn't the fastest but it wasn't the slowest either. He ended up somewhere in the middle of the pack.

He did have a good time building it and racing it.

He won the award for the "Most Delicious Car".

He was a little upset that his car had such a poor showing. He said next year he wants to build for speed and not have a silly car like he has had the two previous years.  We will have to see what he comes up with for his and our family's last Pinewood Derby next year.
