Today we took the boys to their first Nascar race. The Nationwide series was in town and we bought some cheap seats and decided to give it a go. It's the first time in a looooong time we've been able to go places without packing the kitchen sink and so we're getting a little more adventurous. We knew we weren't going to stay for the race (it was at 6:30 p.m.) so we thought we'd take the boys to watch qualifying and see how they did. It was great! I grew up going to races so I really love the sound of a loud engine and the smell of burning rubber. Strange I know, but I still do. The boys were a little startled by the loudness at first, but then settled in and decided they kinda liked it. It was so fun--hysterical to watch their reactions to things (and to watch them "people watch")! And there's always good people watching at a Nascar race. They kept talking about Lightning McQueen--they were really hoping he was going to be in the race--so cute!!
I used to be Richard Petty's biggest fan--can you tell?
CD was not so sure about the noise.
CJ was a fan!
So classic, I finally get a picture with my boys and someone is picking a nose, HA!!
