Derby car

The club that my son goes to at church participates in a derby car race and he has been waiting for the past few weeks to race. Last night he finally got the chance and it was really cool to see all of those boys so excited about what they had made. Here is a picture of his before we changed the wheels(they are nice and smooth now)!!My husband was going to race some other dads but decided to give his wooden block to my nephew who isn't in this group and has never done a derby race before. He was very excited to use the power tools and craft the car the way he wanted it. I didn't get a finished picture of his though :(
Evan is holding my nephews car here because he had to leave early. Here are a few more pictures from last night and Trevor with his trophy for the car that closest resembles a derby car and cool car design. He was thrilled!

Feeding the swans!

Here are a few pictures of the kids feeding the huge swans that live near our house. My little guy had NO fear of them and couldn't figure out why they kept running from him when he got too close!
Here he is throwing rocks into the bayAnd Trevor searching for "fossils"!
