Car Races

Last Saturday we took the kids up to the Miller Motor Sports Park to watch this race that was 7 hours long. We had a lot of fun watching the cars. They have a shuttle that takes you to different grandstands along the race track so you can see from all different view points. We got to see the cars stopping at the pit for maintenance and to switch drivers. It's so cool how they can switch out the tires, fix the car, switch drivers, and be ready to go again in about a minute. Unbelievable!

Unfortunately we weren't able to get pictures of any of the real action because either the camera was inaccesible in the backpack, or the battery was near dead at the end of the day. We wanted to get some pictures of the kids by the race cars.

We saw a lot of spin-outs and a couple of wrecks.

The most exciting thing happend in the afternoon. The kids were getting tired of watching the races, so we said, OK - the race is long - let's just go. There was only 1 1/2 hours left to go, but everyone was getting ornery. We walked to the parking lot and got the kids in the car when they started acting disappointed that we were leaving. I talked to them and gave them a choice, stay and finish the race or go home. All 3 kids said "STAY!!". So we loaded back out of the car, walked back into the park, and went to the shuttle stop that would take us back to the grandstands.

While we were standing there waiting, I glanced up and saw huge flames over the wall right next to us! It was a race car on fire and the driver was still driving it! The black smoke was full of pieces of rubber and was very toxic. The kids and I ran into the building because we couldn't breathe. It passed us and the wind carried the smoke the other direction the other way just enough that we were able to come out and take a good look at the workers getting the driver out and putting out the flames. That was our excitement. :) We didn't know we would get THAT close to the action.

I'm glad we went and were able to bring the kids. They all had a good time and still talk about it.

Where We Will Be

We are going to the Riviera Maya. :)

Here is our beach.

Our room should be similar to this one. Hopefully we don't show up and find out we were wrong and are in some little shack with cockroaches. EEPS!

Jeremy's New Do - Woo Woo!!

Jeremy got a new hairdo today that he is so proud of. :) He wanted to look great for when we go to Mexico, so he went down to the beauty school that just came to Payson and had his locks weaved with COLOR! I had to get some great close-up photos for all to enjoy.

At first he didn't want me to take pictures, but he soon came around.

Way too much TIME!!!

OK, I've spent waaay too much time on this thing today. I didn't have any current pictures on the computer, so I had to dig out the camera cables from the pantry, download pictures, change the batteries, download more pictures, and now edit them. It will be well worth it I HOPE! Oh, I also made a more interesting header. :) OK, I'll put some cute kid pictures here now . . .
The first picture is all the kids at Lynda's house when Alexandra was about a week old.

Then we have Nathan being himself - a little clown. He sure does like to get his picture taken. :) He strikes a pose!!

The kids won moustaches in the library reading program. The theme this year was detectives. This is about as long as they stayed on - to take this picture.

This is Alexandra today, September 11, 2007. She is a very happy little baby girl and I don't have any complaints about her. She is just smiley and cute.

State Fair

I finally broke down and did it! This is my new blog . . . newly created today.

Last night we went to the Utah State Fair. The kids had a blast and I had fun killing my back carrying the baby around. It was still fun, though.

Nathan didn't like the cows. It's odd because when you walk through the cow barn, all you see are the enormous bums. They are all tied up so you can't see their faces. Jeremy put the stroller close to a cow (bum) so Nate could get closer. Nathan started freaking out. I wouldn't want my face in there either!

We also watched some turkey races. That was hilarious. :) The people put turkey feed in the back of a remote-controlled truck and the turkeys chased it all around trying to get the food.

We never did stop to feed the baby, so after it was time to go she was screaming. We finally had to pull off the freeway on the way home, sit in an Arby's parking lot, and I fed her for 20 minutes.

Yay.I just wanted to try this out, so this is it for today!
