A really great, really hot day

We woke up at the crack of dawn (haha, if you’ve read this blog for awhile, you know that means about 7:30 in salsaland), grabbed our lawn chairs and raced to a nearby street corner to watch the speedsters roar by. You can see that we didn’t bother with niceties like showering, brushing hair, or even changing the girls out of the Wela Wear dresses that they wore all day yesterday and then slept in. Meh. No one cared, and every driver waved to the little girls as they sped by, even the big burly guys:DSC_6035LRDSC_6063LR DSC_6132LR

My bro and dad were especially happy to see our little audience of four, and the girls nearly popped with excitement when #44 drove by:DSC_6103LR2

After a brief break for eating, playing on the play structure, swimming, resting, and eating some more (it wasn’t really brief, I guess, since the speedster run lasted about 8 hours), we sauntered down to the finish line and hooted and clapped and cheered on the returning drivers. That lineup of cars was pretty dang cool.DSC_6177LR

And the girls got to hang out in their fave speedster:DSC_6197LRDSC_6200LRDSC_6209LR3

They look pretty comfy in there, don’t they?

They got even comfier when BobBob took them for a little spin or two or three around the block (it always starts out as one ride, and then they con him into more):DSC_6223LR2DSC_6230LR


Then we grabbed some Chinese food and took our tired-but-happy little girls home and slid them into bed. After spending the whole day in what felt like hundred-degree heat, they are just cooked. (Hm, so am I.) Bet they sleep in tomorrow!

Congratulations to all the speedster drivers! What a great event.

  7. I'm sorry... I'm still stuck on the crack of dawn comment. I would pay BIG MONEY for the Tongginator to sleep in until 7:30. Heh.

    Loved seeing your day though. Glad you woke up at "the crack of dawn" to do it.
