Potato Derby

Saturday our ward took advantage of the sunshine and had a ward activity at the park. We had a Potato Derby! I have to admit that Pinewood Derby's always looked fun to me, and growing up I was always a little jealous of the scouts. So I was excited for this activity. We each got a potato to carve and then put wheels on it, gave it a name and raced it down the track. I named mine "T-Racer". I know. Clever right? It didn't do too well, mostly because I raced first and the track was kind of messed up in the beginning. That's okay though. It was still fun. Below there is a picture of the top 3 winners of the Derby. They got little medals. For refreshments, what else would we have except a Potato Bar. Yummy food + Fun Activity + Sunshine = Good Saturday!

Cute idea.... even cuter pictures. I'll have to suggest this idea to our ward.

I'm surprised that you didn't go for "Racy Tracy."

I've totally done a potato derby before, for one of my old wards. It was SO fun! I didn't win either, but me and my friends dressed up like we were in the pit crew and had grease on our faces. It was awesome. :)
