Wordful Wednesday - Birthday Party and Drag Racing

Saturday, we spent the day at the drag strip in Eddyville, Iowa to test and tune cars.  It was a long drive there and back but it was nice spending quality time with family and friends.
My oldest daughter, Shelby, took her Firebird and raced it down the strip.

We brought my nephew, Alec, along.  It was his first time at the drag strip.  He got to sit in the seat of a friend's Pro Racer car and even got to go down the drag strip as a passenger in my husband's car. 

Adam loves hanging out at the drag strip.  He was a passenger a few times as well.

Jason's car isn't fancy or souped up but we all have fun watching him race.  Cars and racing runs through his veins.

Sunday was my nephew's 25th birthday party and we celebrated at his home.  Everyone pitched in and gave him money to take a trip to Ohio later in the year to visit where A Christmas Story was filmed.  Justin has a slight obsession with the movie.

How was your weekend?

Oh man, I would have LOVED to come with to the drag strip with you guys-I bet my boyfriend would have gone NUTS if he could race his Abigail (his 99 Mercury Tracer).

I'll have to remember that so maybe I can surprise him with a trip down there :)

That is probably the greatest cake ever!! Hehe ^.^
