Pinewood Derby

This year we had TWO pinewood derby cars to work on.  Will's first and Nate's last.  One day in school Will's teacher asked to share what was on their minds.  Will raised his hand and said "vampire bunnies".  The whole class laughed.  So that was the theme for his pinewood derby car.  Nate went for a sleek design in hopes of winning first place.  Everyone had a good time racing.

It's Great to be Eight!!

All Will wanted to do for his birthday was go to the park with the digging toys and subway for dinner. So we did. Two days after his birthday was his first pack meeting for cub scouts. It was the blue and gold banquet. He was very excited about it if you couldn't tell already.
Then of course the BIG DAY...his baptism and confirmation. We are so proud of you Will!

Cabazon Dinosarus

We went to Palm Springs for Nate to compete in the Odyssey of the Mind competition. That was fun but the highlight was probably visiting the Cabazon dinosaurs well known for their appearance in Pee Wee's Big Adventure. They now have a whole dinosaur exhibit walk through on the way to get into the big dinosaurs. The kids had a blast.


 Will had a little too much fun posing for the camera.
