weekend recap.

Wow, what a weekend. I am completely beat. We had so much fun, maybe too much fun, where to even begin...

Saturday we went to the Chandler Classic Car Show. I was pretty impressed by the number of cars that were there. They had food and vendors and all kinds of good stuff. There were a ton of dogs walking around too. Sometimes I wish Piston was better behaved so he could come to things like that. I guess that will come with age.

After the Car Show we took a little drive and food the local Margaretville. I wouldn't consider myself a full Parrot Head, but I do really enjoy Jimmy Buffett. It's a really fun place. Aurora was good the entire time we were there! She was totally distracted by all the stuff on the walls and ceilings. It's rare for her to sit still through an entire meal, so that was pretty awesome.

Yesterday the three of us loaded up in the car and headed to the Phoenix International Speedway for the NASCAR race. Yes, NASCAR. If you would have told me 5 years ago that I would be attending a race I would have slapped you. My husband loves racing, and after watching it for the past several years ever Sunday from February till about November I think, you get sucked in. It's a really difficult sport. It takes a lot of people for those cars to make really fast left turned for 3 or 4 hours. Aurora likes going to the race, not because she likes to watch the cars. The "wace" is very "woud" she says. She likes to watch the people, walk around, and eat the food.

It was a beautiful day for a race. They called for rain, but it never hit us.

Our tail gate par-tay!

The mother of all funnel cakes, and a very bad idea.

This time we went a little overboard on the food. Aurora got really sick on the way home. I felt so bad. The funnel cake really did her in. We only ate a quarter of it but I think it was too much for her little stomach to handle. She got sick again in the middle of the night we were up watching Blue's Clues at 2:00am. I feel so terrible.

It's been a pretty long, but fun, weekend. I didn't get my homework finished last night and I really should be working on that. Plotting graphs for my math class just doesn't seem as fun as writing a blog post though!

Happy Monday... or something...

  1. Tail gating looks like fun, I have never even watched a nascar race. I am not really into any type of sporting event though. But I think if I were into something I would be more inclined to like races. That is no fun that Aurora got sick, poor little thing. Those old cars look sweet though, I love going to car shows.
