Friday Fun

Friday Friday, gotta get down on Friday! And for this family, we get down by ordering take-out and going to the race track.

Since we got back from Newfoundland, Mike's been obsessed with the racetracks and racing. I mean, he LOVES cars (especially his car) and he reads about cars EVERYDAY! Cars and racing go hand in hand so obviously he's got to put his baby to good use and race. Anyways, there's this racetrack just 10 minutes from our house that holds drag races every friday for any car that is legal to drive. Tons of cars show up to race and there are a lot of people who show up to watch. The first time we went, I was surprised to see families with little kids there but happy at the same time that this was an event that everyone can attend and have it be safe.
Mike has been going every friday and gets about 2 or 3 races in. And when it's not too late and not too cold out, i'll take the kids and we'll stay and usually watch just one race (the line up is so long that it takes probably an hour or so till he gets to run his first race). Sadie gets so excited seeing all the fast cars, she loves it just as much as daddy does. She just isn't a huge fan of the loud noises that some of the cars make.

So this friday, we started out with ordering Vietnamese from a restaurant close to our house that we just found out about. I LOVE Vietnamese food! And what we ordered has been the best we've had yet! After that, off to the races. Sadie, of course, wanted to look at every car there and would get so excited everytime a car pulled up to race. She also loved all the space that was available to run and jump around in. As for Mckenzie, she is seriously the best baby! She slept thru most of it and when she was awake, did not make a peep and just sat in her car seat watching Sadie run around. She was full of smiles all day but then again, when is she not full of smiles. We got home pretty late, so I gave the girls a quick bath and off to bed they went.

Mike is still at the track racing. I can't wait to hear all about his races and see all the times he ran.............. haha

 Did I mention, Sadie is THE most pickiest eater ever. She doesn't like any food that has flavour. Here she has plain spaghetti noodles with cucumbers. She LOVES this stuff!
