I didn't include a long shot of the track, but it went quite a ways down and here was the starting point and you can see Josiah's car second in from the front. His car was not the fastest, but it was not the slowest either. Some cars didn't even cross the finish line! They had awards for best design and also for the fastest and sadly, Josiah's car didn't win either of those type of awards.

We had a lot of time to kill before the races as we came early to weigh the car and make sure it was up to par and so Daddy had fun playing with the kiddos beforehand. They were running over to him in the chair giving him "running fives" and sitting in his lap often and lots of hugs and kisses were given.

Miss Naomi would not be outdone with Daddy fun either and claimed her spot on Daddy's lap many a time also!

Caleb is our cuddlebug and of course he didn't like to relinquish his spot with Daddy either, but would get up occasionally to dance or give "running fives" to Daddy.

Josiah was busy trying to avoid getting his picture taken, but he was foiled again by Mommy! Mommy is a sneaky stealth photographer and will get him everytime!

As per usual, a picture with all four kiddos isn't easy to get, but this is a close as it comes folks!

Josiah was very disappointed that he didn't get a trophy and all the way home he cried and was feeling sorry for himself. I felt like a horrible mother for not going all "overachiever" on this like I wanted to originally, but David informed me that it was a good lesson for him and that it would be fine. Josiah dubbed the day though his "worst day ever" and so that was hard. We are hoping that Grandpa Carpenter can help him with next year's car design as we found out that Josiah's cousin, Anna Grace took first at her Awana Grand Prix. As predicted though, as the days passed, Josiah forgot about his defeat and all was right with the world again.
