Pinewood Derby

Noah's car on the left and Jordan's on the right.

The boys got VERY into making their Pinewood Derby cars this year. At the Stake tournament, Jordan came in 2nd for the Webelos & Noah came in 1st for the Wolves. In the final race, where the 1st place finishers raced against each other, Noah came in 2nd behind the same kid that beat out Jordan in Webelos. Who invited that kid anyways?

Ben LOVED watching all the cars race. It was almost as good as Disneyland for him.

4th of July

4th of July fireworks were held at our home this year. It was nice having such a big backyard to light the fireworks off. Looking at the pictures, I pondered at how nuts it is to have kids running around with lighted sticks in their hands. It's a wonder no one got hurt.

Taylor and the bonfire of sparklers.

Ben wanted no part of fireworks. This is one of only a few moments that he let me take my hand from off of his ear. He was petrified.

Hailey has become such a poser these days. I can hardly get candid shots anymore. Once she sees a camera aimed at her, she automatically strikes a pose. Notice the absolutely forced smile. This look reminds me of the cheerleaders posing in high school.

Ben was fascinated the next day to inspect the damage. He was out there staring all afternoon.

Jordan & Noah

I'm trying a few different ways to do a slideshow on here, so bear with me. I thought I'd better put one on of Hailey before she starts crying for equal opportunity.
