It is that time of year again...Derby Day! We have been sanding, painting, tinkering with our cars for the last two months and today we were able to finally race them. I have decided that our family is not about speed, aerodynamics, or sleekness...we are all about the interesting, funny, weird, how slow can we go kinda derby car. And a couple of us came in dead last all day....it was awesome!
Here are some of our fabulous designs...
|Francesco Brnoulli !|
|Her car is a replication of one of her sand art bottles |
she made at a fair in Lundington, MI!
|She did an airport complete with a flying plane!|
|My car was The Little Engine That Could....I think I can, I think I can!|
We enjoyed watching all the races!
Here is the mom vs. my oldest daughter race..I won ( I won't tell you my train was a little on the heavy side...so I did have an unfair advantage)
Here is our annual "Family RACE" and the actually race car won!
My daughter came in 2nd for speed.
|Getting her trophy from our childrens pastor, Pastor Kelly!|
I came in 3rd for speed...did I tell you there was only three in our division!!!! hahahahahahaha
What a great family time and I got this super duper cute picture of shorty! Love it and love racing our crazy fun cars!
