Aric & his grandpa (that would be the Mickey) have been busy the last several weeks getting Aric's pinewood derby car ready for the big race.
A close-up of the finished car.
6:30 Friday night was the big race!! The first thing they had to do, when getting to the church, was register and weigh-in their car.
The races are underway as Aric, with his dad, Marc, behind him watching them go.
Of course there were hot-dogs, chips, soda's and freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and various games after the race.
At 9 they had lock-in for the night. Marc went home at this point but Aric & Grandpa did the sleep-in. Mickey had taken a double air mattress that blew-up for the two of them to sleep on. Aric with his bedroll and Grandpa with his comforter. Just one problem.....the air mattress did not stay blown up!!!! Oh well, such are the joys of being a grandpa and a Royal Ranger leader.
The next morning the very tired grandson and grandpa came and got grandma and the three of us went to Aric's favorite spot in Coweta. The Sticky Bun's doughnut shop!! Grandma likes it, too :o)
