Last month the Elder's Quorum in our ward held a Pinewood Derby. They invited the kids to build their own cars as well. Needless to say, it was a big hit! The kids had so much fun putting together their cars! Christian and JR ended up racing for the Championship! It was a very close race. So close that they had to race twice! We even had video footage! (I will try to add that later, my computer is being retarded.) Sammy's car did pretty well, too! She took 5th place. After a few minutes, the judges decided that JR's car took 1st Place and Christian's 2nd. Mommy was pretty happy with that because she helped build JR's car! (Who ever said that women can't build cars?! Ha Ha!)
Here is a shot of the top 3 contenders. Way to go boys!
We live in a small town in Eastern Utah. Christopher owns and manages 3 Fedex Ground Routes in the area. Christy is a stay-at-home Mom and also helps run the financial part of the FedEx Business. Christian is 11. He loves anything to do with science, math, and reading. And he'll talk your ear off if you let him! JR is 9. He is such a little goofball! He is always cracking a joke or making a silly face! Sammy is 6 and full of life! She has the sweetest smile ever! Her favorite thing to do is tease her brothers relentlessly! Brendan is now 3! He is definitely not a baby anymore! His vocabulary is increasing daily and he is very outgoing! He is also learning from his big sis on how to torment his siblings. He definitely keeps us on our toes!
We enjoy spending time as a family, traveling, playing games, being outdoors, kayaking, and we LOVE swimming!
