Sexy pinewood derby car and the zoo.

I work in a car shop and for one of our team meetings we are having a pinewood derby race. I figure I have little chance of winning against mechanics, so I decided to make it fun.


Behold, my idea of a pinewood derby car:



I would never even wear that shoe in real life, but it's kinda sexy-cute, don't ya think?

This weekend we went to the zoo. Good times.

Blaine looks so funny, I would never be caught doing that.


Ten minutes later he persuaded me.


This is my best attempt to be a sexy spider. I think my pasty white legs steal the show.


Mama chick and her egglings.


White alligator. I guess there are only about 10 left in the world and they are sure to go extinct.




Ben had to stop every 15 mins to consultant with the zoo map, it was really cute.

Flashback to Disneyland May 2007, Ben consulting the Disney map:

I guess he's big into planning. I can't wait until he's old enough to plan our household, Roxy can cook and Blaine and I can just sit back.

That is a HOT pinewood derby car! Maybe the other cars will be ogling it so much that you will win.

Fun times at the zoo. My littlest asked just a couple of days ago if we could go to the zoo.

hello, my name is amber marie. said...

taylor also loves to get maps everywhere we go! fun pictures of the zoo! your kids are adorable!

hands down hottest pinewood derby car + sexiest spider! we didn't see that spider net, turtle shell, OR cracked egg when we went! sad.

Christa said...

I love the car. I wouldn't ever be able to wear the real version either. It's a balance issue. Our Scout Master made some really great ones for our Pinewood Derby this year. One looked like a Twinkie. His 2 year old daughter kept trying to eat it.

I have the same problem with the pasty, white legs. Pale people just can't hold a tan.

my favorite part of this blog was your bangs. I love them. I am magic. do you still like your hair?

Me said...

I absolutely adore your derby car! I think you should win for no other reason that your car looks Fabulous!

Kristina P. said...

TJ, when did you sneak into my bedroom to steal my shoes! I love it!

I really need to go to the zoo, for other reasons than to stuff my face with free food.

Rychelle said...

i don't see how that shoe/car could loose!

and i love the shoes you wore to the zoo.

Christine Peterson said...

that's funny we went to the zoo this weekend too. I so hope you make a derby car like that! That is sweet! Cute pics, you and Blaine are a hoot!

TJ said...

Christine, THAT IS the one I made.
With some help from Blaine.

The Morty's said...

I love the car, but I have told you that many times today LOL But I do, I love it!

Holdinator said...

I'm kind of glad I wasn't a part of that team meeting. I have exactly zero wood working skills and probably wouldn't have been able to get the wheels on a plain block of wood (even if the wheels come attached already).

Michelle said...

thanks for stopping by my blog! i definitely don't mind ... so stop by again soon! i love blog friends!!! :) your daughter has beautiful eyes, i must say!! what a fun day ... i love the zoo.

hello, my name is amber marie. said...

you got bangs too!? we're TWINS!

hello, my name is amber marie. said...

HI MICHELLE!

Lauri said...

I love the car! Is it sparkly? How did you get it sparkly? Fun zoo pics. I love the one of both the kids reading the map. Very cute!

Lisa said...

Sexy car! You made it?!?!? Again, you always amaze me.

Love the turtle pictures lol. laughed out loud on those.

Miss your kids! let's get together sometime soon!

Bonnie the Boss said...

Such a cute shoe! I immediatly called my SIL to tell her to rip off the idea! You Rock!

TJ said...

Amber Marie, I wish we were twins - you're hot!

Michelle, I love having blog freinds, I'm we to know you now.

Lauri, spray glue for the glitter.

Bonnie, tell everyone, anyone can rip it off, because seriously it is an awesome pinewood derby car.

Erin The Great said...

Who would have thought that a pinewood derby car would inspire such a cute shoe idea....

RBS said...

I am totally in love with your pinewood derby car. I enjoyed helping my boys with theirs way back in the dark ages but they never would have gone for something like that. It is just smokin.

I believe everything published made a bunch of sense. However,
think on this, suppose you were to write a killer title?
I ain't suggesting your information isn't solid, but what if you
added something that makes people want more? I mean "Sexy pinewood derby car and the zoo." is kinda plain.
You could glance at Yahoo's home page and see how they write article titles to grab people interested. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab people interested about what you've got to say.
In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
