Ki-yip-pee-Yi

Hey, look, it's me and WD (clap, clap, clap, clap) deep in the heart of Texas. Well, maybe not (clap, clap, clap, clap) deep in the heart of Texas but certainly the outer layer of the pericardium of Texas. We traveled to Texas Motor Speedway this past weekend for the NASCAR race.

Before we left home, I made sure to clear some room on my camera and charge the batteries. While in the motel room I played around with the settings, getting it ready for fast action shots, and then...I forgot to take it to the track. (The above pic was taken by WD's dad.) I guess the good thing about that is that it was one less thing I had to keep up with.

We had a great time even though Elliott Sadler came in 35th. Jimmie Johnson leads the Chase with only 2 more races to go.

Carl Edwards gets the win, Juan Montoya gets the red lantern, and we're in Phoenix next Sunday.

  4. We were just down there as well. But hubby goes with his brother and our oldest son. They had a blast. I used to go, but now he gets a little guy time and I stay with my SIL and our 2 other kids. We did go to Talladega not long ago - the traffic was crazy and not a lot of wrecks - a little boring! We live in AR as well, to the Western side.

  15. It's like a break from work - a mini vacation - when the camera gets accidentally left home! Hate Nascar TV, but it's so much fun in person!
