I am behind on visiting your blogs and posting to my own-sorry.  Twice a week I sleep at my mother's house so two nights a week I don't sleep.  Most of the time I'm operating in a foggy state.  So I'll just show you what we've been up to in pictures.
Tiger Scout visit to my sister's bakery as part of their healthy eating unit.  She makes all organic products and everything comes in gluten-free as well.  She shares the business with a woman who owns a health food store.

Pinewood Derby race for Cub Scouts

Aidan was excited, but his car came in last in each heat.  My husband said a lighter car is a faster car.  He used to drive stock cars, so he does know something about it, but stock cars have one thing pinewood derby cars don't have-an engine :-)

Visit to Chutter's store in Littleton.  They have the longest continuous candy counter in the world and are in the Guiness Book of World Records.  Pretty Baby used to go there every couple of months with her best friend in high school.  Aidan loves to pick up tourist brochures and when he got one of theirs and asked if he could go there, I called Pretty Baby and we made a trip today.

Pictures are good - we love them! And yeah - pinewood derby - heavier the better - right up to the weight limit and over the back wheels. And think aerodynamic - and even consider drilling a couple big holes from centerline front to the side right behind the front wheels - it will hold the ligheter front end down and decreasing resistance in any fashion builds a winner!

Thanks, Aus!
Those are some great tips and I'm going to share them with my husband for next year. He won't forget them.
