It's a Family Thing

My husband drag races every spring-fall and it is such a fun time for our whole family. This year we're getting a later start to it because we swapped our motor for a beefier, faster one and it's taking some time getting it ready and modifying the car for it. It's mainly him and his dad that work on the car, I help when I can but I've also got to watch the kids. While he's out there racing I'm usually recording it so we can watch for errors or photographing him with Buck strapped to my back and Lyla next to me! If they're not with me they're with my mother in law back at the trailer. 

On bigger racing weekends when he'll be racing the whole weekend we usually take the motorhome out there Friday afternoon and camp there until Sunday evening. It's such a fun time! The atmosphere and the people out there are just awesome. They're always there to lend a hand with your car with an extra beer for you.

Last year was Lyla and Philip's first time camping out there, well camping in the motorhome at all, and they had a blast! I really can't wait to do it again! And I hope more of our family and friends can make it out to watch this year.

 The sound of the cars puts him to sleep. And that's my dad photobombing.

Just happiness.
