Pinewood Derby!

Here's a pretty bad video of one the Pinewood Derby races featuring Jack's Penny Mobile!  His car is the brown one and he finishes a strong second in the race...even though it is kind of blocked.

Here's a picture of the car.  It is inspired by some of the cars Dad and I built back in the day but a little uglier.  The main deal with these cars is getting them as close to the 5 ounce weight limit as possible with more of the weight in the back.

We used old "wheat pennies" as our weights and drilled out an inch in the back to load with pennies.  We had a bronzed '64 Kennedy half dollar on the front but realized we'd glued too many pennies in the back which sent us over the weight limit.  So we quickly swapped out the 50 cent piece for a penny making the car that much uglier.   But she was pretty fast though.

Jack 'The Shooter"

Jack was called out for the speed of his "shooting" ability in wrestling which was really neat given it was only his 5th practice.

The Awkward Sibling Hug

Jack and Elle learned about the awkward sibling show from the Gravity Falls show and could immediately relate.   They did it for Steph and I before we knew what it was and we cracked up.

Elle and Daddy's Song

Hush little baby don't say a word.
Daddy's going to buy you a mockingbird.

And if that mockingbird won't fly
Daddy's going to give you a piece of pie.

And if that piece of pie's too sour.
Daddy's going to play with you for an hour.

And if that hour goes to fast.
Daddy's going to give you a hug that lasts.
