Burb mom and Chevy take us to NASCAR!!!

Thank you!!! Thank you !! Thank you!!!
Chevy and Burb mom!!

On Sunday, Chevy and Burbmom took us to NASCAR!!
I can't tell you how excited my kids were.

*insert screaming*
*insert jumping up and down*

and the kids were very excited too!!
The people at Chevy could not have been nicer!!!
They were great with the boys.

They played a game where you put all these tetris blocks in the back of one of their midsize SUVS. I was shocked at the room it had in the back.
Chevy had their drivers come out and do a little spill before the race. They gave this big speech about how they were not going to sign autographs.

Landry's second favorite driver is Jimmy Johnson. Well, he came out and talked and Landry wiggled his way to the front and then this happened...

Yep, that's Landry getting an autograph.
Then, because no one under 18 is allowed in the pits the boys and I tool off to explore while my dad and hubby went to the pits
They were so EXCITED!
But nothing prepared them for the excitement of....

"Gentlemen Start your Engine's!!"
This is the look I saw when I looked over at Luke..

It seemed like a good idea at the time...

So a friend calls Wednesday morning and want to know our afternoon plans..
Not much really..
Well , There is anew "skate" park that just opened up and its outside, free and the boys can bring bikes, scooter, or skateboards.
Great!! This has 3 of my favorite things..

Outside.. New.. and FREE!!!!

We are soo in! I'll be at your house a little after 3:00

Great I will make a fresh batch of pumpkin cookies.
I will bring a cooler with drinks and my NEW fancy camera these will be great action shots!
So we are suburban moms in our suburban of toys with our 3 boys, one of which is in a private school uniform. Headed to the skate park!
So we get to the skate park and my friend and I look at each other. Wow! There are a lot of people here. Oh well, come on it will be ok..
So, We find our parking spot right by the front and start unloading..

3 bikes.. check
2 skateboards .. check
2 scooters.. check..
one cooler of drinks. .. check..
Cookies.. check
New Big fancy camera.. check
So we wag all our stuff into the park..
The boys head off to have a good time..

Then we look around.. (cue scary music)

We are the only ones there with kids..
Everyone is in their late teens or early 20's.
Why aren't these people in school??

Why aren't they at their job??

Oh well, It will be fine..
Ok So we are the ONLY females there.
Uhmmm ...
Then a guy falls in front of us and lets out a stream of curse words you wouldn't hear on HBO.
( well there's bound to be one)

Then I notice there's a group smoking..
Then Another guy and some not so nice words.
Then Landry comes over and says" hey, that guy over there introduced himself to me.."

Ok that's it we are outta here!!!

Looking back I bet we were very funny. Pulling up in our suburban with our kids .. and our little cooler and home made cookies and my cross t shirt and hat. Not exactly skate park material.
Oh well .. no permanent damage done

We actually used it as a teachable moment in that this is not what God wants for his children. Playing and having fun and being outside good..smoking .. cusing.. and being 20 and hanging out there ..not good..

We also went back thru the Don't talk to strangers, don't take anything from a stranger.. blah blah blah..
They did have fun for the 10 minutes we were there. Maybe a 8:30 in the morning would be a good time to go. It's a neat concept OR someone with some $$ needs to make a skate park for ages 14 and under..

Happy Boo Y'all!!!

So Halloween has come and gone..
Christmas is just around the corner.

But I have some Way Way catching up to do before that craziness begins.

Let's start with the pumpkin patch dilema..

Flower mound has a multitude of pumpkin patches. Which one you decide to goto depends on your financial state ie: you got $10 to blow to go into a pumpkin patch or you ability to handle crowds.
No in all seriousness. There are 3 major pumpkin patches and they all have something diff to offer.

We always choose the Original pumpkin patch. And every year we take this pic. I would compare it for you to last year but that is on my computer that is at the computer hospital.This would be the constipated pumpkin
Happy Halloween!!
