Springtime hike at Governor's Bridge

Emma and I found a new set of hiking trails near the house this weekend, which was great because Mom and Dad really needed to get some energy out.

In the summer this path is gonna be full of leaves, but it was pretty neat to walk through and see all the trees just getting ready for the spring. The root steps were pretty steep, but I ran up them quick anyways.  

Emma couldn't decide if the lake and woods were more fascinating than her jacket. It was a toss up, really. 

We're definitely coming back here in the summer.

Strike a pose

First, start off with a leg lift. 

 Then carefully spin towards the audience.

Stretch out your arm, then...

Tiger claw. It brings the whole dance routine together.

Pinewood derby race!

We had our first Cub Scout pinewood derby on Saturday! The track was about 40 feet long and the cars were timed down to the thousandth of a second. Yeah, it was a pretty serious event. 

Emma and I had front row seats for the races, which were awesome. I only got to send my car down four times but it was totally worth it to see all the action. Here's a sample:

In the end, I got a few third-place finishes and a second-place run. And the pack gave me the "best paint job" medal for the awesome flames Dad and I put on the car, which was pretty neat. Next year I'm going for the "Supersonic speed" medal instead.

Pinewood derby prep

Everybody knows the key to a fast pinewood derby car is the color. It makes the air go around the car much faster. 

Here's what Dad and I came up with for this year. The flames are important, because they intimidate the other cars. They're made of wood, after all.

Geometry lessons

All I'm saying is that if you have to ask me whether or not this is a cube, maybe you're the one who needs to be studying more.

Aunt Beth braids

Dad does an OK job most mornings with my hair, but he can't make me look like Elsa the way Aunt Beth can.
