Gone to the Race!


Taylor and I have been NASCAR fans ever since he was about 2 years old.
Someone gave him a model race car when his brothers were born
and we started watching the races on Sunday afternoons so he
could find that car going around the track.

Twenty one years later, we've not missed watching a race
and now that he doesn't live with me, we text each other
while we watch.  We've been to a few races, too, which is 
always fun!  Today will be extra fun because I'm going with
Lauren and Taylor.  So, there will be girl talk, too! 
That's like the cherry on top! ha.

  1. I've been to a couple of car races, and it was TOO NOISY to hear the person next to you!

    1. I'm sure we'll have fun! And I don't have to hold his hand to make sure he doesn't get lost in the crowd. Ha.

    1. I'm sure we will! But it's suppose to rain! That would seriously dampen our fun....pun intended! Ha.

  9. I used to try to teach Ben math facts by race car drivers and numbers. Worked great until they started switching numbers.
    Jimmy Johnson + Jimmy Johnson no longer equals Jeff Gordon.

    1. Two jeff Gordons do equal one Jimmie johnson, though. :)

    2. Ha! I guess they do. I can't remember anymore how all that went. All I remember now is that some of the numbers changed and left me confused. Apparently I'm still confused.
      :0)

    3. haha...well, you did give me a good chuckle on that one. Those two drivers have never changed numbers....probably the only ones that haven't!

    4. Doesn't that just figure? (My blond hair is showing again.) *blush*
      ANd they're the only two I remember... or actually don't. ha ha!

    5. That does make for a very funny blonde joke...but I was going to let you call it that!

      Actually, I admire you doing a math lesson during the race!

  11. Not far from my house is the famous Mallory Park racetrack. So famous in fact that no-one in America, or anywhere else it seems, knows about it. I used to go every Sunday with Steph when we were just good friends. Now I'm older I find the noise and the fumes a little nauseating. On Wednesdays, practice day, and Sunday Race Days the noise from there is still loud enough to spoil our quiet afternoons in the garden.

    You and Stephanie would get along well, it seems you are both racing car fanatics.
