Cardboard Box Derby Winners!

For the last 10 days Joe and the kids have worked on creating a cardboard box racer to enter in the annual Cardboard Box Derby. This is the first year was have taken part in it.
We decided to go with a Star Wars theme. Joe worked so hard on it this week adding the finishing touches.

We all had a fun day at the ski mountain and the kids loved spending time with some of their friends who were also competing.
The race slope was really steep and I was nervous for the kids when I saw it, but they said it wasn't too scary. There were three categories to compete in. One was for speed, one was for durability and the last was for style.

We won 1st place for Style! Woo hoo!

Here are some pictures of the event and our Cardboard Box Y-Wing Fighter. (notice R2D2 in the back.)
