NASCAR!


Today was beautiful and THRILLING! The bright colors were amazing! It was so loud! You could see it, hear it and felt it all! 200,000 people! We spent the day over at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. We saw all the favorites...Jeff Gordon, Jimmy Johnson, Kyle Busch...and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr was the first car out today. Even if he isn't your racer you gotta love him. Tony Stewart was there....he is the only racer I don't like.





Look at these young guys walking to the race.














There is Madi...look where our seats were...turn 3...they were great seats. On the 3rd lap there was a crash and the car was on fire right there...we felt it hit the wall twice. WILD!




Ben, Steve and Madi watching the action.












It was a long but fun 341 laps...we were there 6 hours. Did you watch the race on tv? Some serious crashes on the last 5 laps. As long as the drivers are okay those are sure a crowd pleaser if they don't include your racer. Today, car #2 Kurt Busch won. That is who Madi picked before the race started. It was an amazing and fun fun fun experience!!!

Jeni, that looks so fun! That is amazing that all the drivers were okay despite all the accidents they had, too. I was getting caught up on your blog and saw that you all are going to Disney World! I want to let you know that if you liked what you saw at the NASCAR races, you should check out "Lights, Motors, Action" at Hollywood Studios, it was great! Loud and crazy, but fun to watch all the stunts! :)

Also, about light green fake apples...I was at Pier 1 last week, and saw perfect ones and they were $3 a piece. The look so real! The ones in my colander right now are real, but I am going to get the fake ones next time I am shopping! And if you have a Marshalls nearby, they have colanders in different sizes and colors (at great prices, too!). Just thought I'd pass this all on! :)

Have a beautiful day!

Ha! Fun pictures. Tony went to the Daytona 500 a couple weeks ago and had a fun time, but I think he enjoyed the "people watching" as much as the car watching.

I ordered a set of those cute halloween stamps like yours this past week! So excited...

Looks like a fun time! It's been years since I've been to a car race...pre kiddo days!
I bet B & M were at the edge of their seats for most of those 6 hours, too!
Jason is a Dale Jr fan (b/c he was a Sr fan), Bryce is a Jimmy Johnson fan and my Dad is a Gordon fan. You should hear the phone calls going on in our house on race day when we're home to watch! ;)
