Not quite such an early morning today. Kids arrived for breakfast about 8:15 and then Jim, Todd and Michaela headed out for Phoenix International Raceway over in Avondale.
I stayed home with the girls and enjoyed some peace and quiet. Put a roast into the crockpot for dinner and watched the race on TV.
This was the first time Michaela had been to a race and she was really excited. Todd had gone to a race in Las Vegas with us previously but it’s been many years.
Even though it was really hot there was enough of a breeze they weren’t too miserable. Everyone had a really great time even if Dale Jr. was out of the race early because of a blown tire and he hit the wall.
Everybody was starved and glad for air conditioning by the time they got home.
I so wanted to go to the race...I am hoping maybe in November?!?!ReplyDelete
I'm glad that they had fun!ReplyDelete
I'm sure Jim enjoyed watching the kids reaction to it.ReplyDelete
Looks like everyone is having a ball! By the way, fantastic pictures of the zoo, plus the butterflies. So colorful!ReplyDelete
What a great day!ReplyDelete
We used to go to the race at Richmond every year we lived here. Would go up with the RV on Thursday and be there the whole weekend. Good times.ReplyDelete
Those kids have been having the time of their life. You two have been a very good host and hostess.ReplyDelete
That's fun for them! Great memories.ReplyDelete
What a way to make some great memories and wear you out too, but everyone is having a great time thats all that counts.ReplyDelete
I'm betting those kids will be looking forward to their next visit with you. You've sure showed them a grand time.ReplyDelete
You are showing those kids a great time!ReplyDelete
Those temps would have me heading toward Montana.ReplyDelete
