Derby & Birthdays

Not roller derby. We’re talking the Pinewood Derby! The highlight of the year for all cub scouts, or so I’m told.

This year we had two boys participating… Ian & Cooper. Luckily their dad volunteered the undertaking of building the car with the boys, and I must say that they turned out pretty cool. Did they take home any trophies? Nope. But they both came in about the middle of the pack, and I’m more than happy with this level of mediocrity :).

Like last year, I realized that maybe the most unorganized humans on earth were running the show, but the boys had fun, and that’s really all that mattered.

Nice job Cooper & Ian!

Yesterday we had Ian’s family b-day party. We decided to just keep it low-key and do presents and eat cake & ice cream. The thing I love about family get togethers is no matter what we’re doing, everyone has fun! Of course there was wrestling with Grandpa Jimbo and also cousins playing the way they do.

Ian was excited by all of the fun and thoughtful gifts. He woke up this morning with a smile thinking about the cool loot. What lucky kids we have! Thanks to our families and all they do for our family :).
