We lounged around
D helped C learn to ride her trike, but she still found it easier to push it than ride it for very long!Grilled hot dogs for supper on the little propane griddle.
J enjoyed catching up with his buddies who had saved him a camping spot by setting a gas can in the middle of it?! HA! He came and checked in on us frequently. After it cooled off a little, we enjoyed the great outdoors and the smell of burning rubber and grape smelling alcohol fuel. The guys each get 3-4 timed trials in the afternoon and then the actual race starts around 6 or 7 in the evening. J was pleased with how his car ran. He was even more excited to take 3rd place and bring home a check!! Though he was disappointed because his car actually broke right after that last race started, which he states, is why he lost! He has been working on that this afternoon and is finishing it up as we speak. Actually, the rear bumper broke loose, so he may be lucky that he didn't have a wipe out!
The resting pace was great. I found it refreshing to catch up on a magazine and enjoy the kids without being reminded of all the laundry that needs done, or things that need to be cleaned that I would have found to do at home. The only thing that I found that needed to be cleaned were these :-) and a wet wipe or 5 took care of that pretty easily!
