if you like to go to Demo Derbies.
or "the kids love it so i have to take them"
but the truth is...i love the demo derby.
it's very redneck...
lots of cowboy hats, tatoos and 'git-r-done' kind of talk.
it's small town fun at it's best.
about 6 cars come into the arena at a time
and smash each other up till only 2 left running.
then the winning 2 from each group go another round for the big winner.
$600 first place...not too shabby.
she won her group...girl power!
then the poor thing got out of her car to celebrate
and her whole behind was hanging out the back of her pants.
i guess she couldn't feel it from the adrenaline rush from her big win.
talby saw the tractors coming and with big eyes asked
"are they going to fight now?"
oh and it's LOUD.
i am surprised that i enjoy this.
but it's just fun to watch cars smash together.
and get stuck and figure out how to get un-stuck.
the mud flying at you is fun too.
and then there are yummy treats too.
i really wanted a funnel cake but i resisted.
sean got to use the porta-potties...that's always fun.
at least i get to go for a few more years and use the kids as an excuse.
i said on the way home "maybe i'll drive in it next year"
the kids were mortified.
it would be pretty embarrassing because as soon as a car would come near me
i'd duck my head and scream!
not really the mentality needed for a demo derby driver.
but just think of the sparkly pink car i could drive!
i bet if i'd have given you 100 guesses
you wouldn't have guessed i'd post about that!
hope you had a wonderful holiday.
trying to tell my kid about Memorial Day i got all teary eyed.
we are so blessed.
