I wasn't at the actual derby, since I was away at the ladies retreat, but my friend Bridget was and took these photos. Thanks, Bridget.
"I had a skeleton and fire on my car. The car was black and yellow. It raced good. My favorite part about the Pinewood Derby was racing the car."
I love that Bridget captured this photo of Tilly taking pictures. Before I left I put my kit lens on Tilly's photo (she usually shoots w/ a 50 mm) and told her "Just put it in auto and don't worry about it. The lighting is terrible at that's the best you're going to be able to do". To which she responded, "How do I put my camera in auto?". My heart swelled with pride. The girl didn't even know how to shoot photos in auto!
"Last year's car was better than this year. It won fifth place. But I got voted the favorite of Cub Scouts. I had fun racing."
"The sticker on my car was the same color as my car. The weight on top, on the red stripes made a lot more weight. Because it was longer than the ones inside the car. There was this pink one and it was racing awesome and a guy said it was the Pink Sled. I was almost all the way down but the sled caught up and then it got to the finish line right when mine did. Somebody had a Hershey Bar car but the person was in the Outlaw Race and the guy said 'Watch that Hershey Bar '."
