So I had a new life experience last night. It was Jack's, and myself's, first pinewood derby. Now as most of you all know I do not have any brothers so all of this scouting stuff is so foreign to me. (what's with all the cheers?) Anyways- let me just break down the event for ya.
1. The 8 yr. old scout comes home with a block of wood.
2. The boy bugs the parents every night for a couple of months about working on his derby car. (this usually takes place at 9:00 at night when we are tucking him in bed.)
3. A week before event the dad begins to work on the car, which was very difficult for the man that does not own any tools. (not his thing!)
4. The dad gets the "derby bug" and comes home from work everyday with something new to make the car faster, stronger, better!!!
We were just a little over weight.
There was some sweating, running back to the house, drilling, weight removing, and I'm sure swearing in his head, involved.
Great job Regan, I mean Jack. I am so proud of you.

So I realize this really isn't something to laugh about. So why can't I stop?
We spent the night at my sister's house this weekend (ball tournament up in her neck of the woods), and our little cousin Cannon taught us this trick.
Please don't judge me.

Last week we were able to take our little family to California. This was a whole new Disneyland experience for us. No stroller, no diapers, and no naps. It was just go, go, go!!! We didn't even slow down to see the disney characters (or wait in line to get their autograph!)
It was alot of fun. Tyson was quite the trooper, trying every ride we put him on. I wouldn't say he enjoyed them, but he did go on them. I really think he just wanted to do everything his brother Jack was doing. (that whole "I can do whatever you can do" runs pretty strong in the Brooks' family.)
Thank You Disneyland and California for all the fun we had. See you again in a few years!!!
