A Day at the Races

Last weekend Dom and I got to check out the Indycar race at NHMS.  We had a great time and even got a chance to go in the pits before the race.  That was cool because we were down there while the drivers were practicing and we even got to see some of the drivers close up which I thought was cool.

Here is Danica getting ready to get in her car before practice and then taking practive laps.

And here is Dario Franchitti talking to his crew after practice.  A short time later he went zooming by me on a moped,like close enough I could have reached out and touched him.  I was in fact facing the opposite direction and didn't even know he was coming.  Had I taken a step to the right he probably would have run me over!

We will definitely go back next year.  As much as I have enjoyed Nascar in the past if Jimmy Johnson wins again I think I may give up on the sport.  Nascar has ruined thesport in my opinion and it is no longer as fun to watch the races.  I may become a full time Indycar fan instead!

Kenzie Cooks

Kenzie is always willing to help out in the kitchen and she is a great little helper.  So last week, inspired by a friend I let her pick out a recipe and make the cookies all by herself.  I  helped with the oven and stove and intervened a bit because the recipe that I had never made either, seemed to be missing a step.  Together we tweaked it a bit and the end result was a yummy cookie!  Kenzie was very proud of herself and I was very proud of her too!
Since she was on a roll in the kitchen, I had her make the pizza dough for dinner and when she decided she didn't want pizza for dinner she went on to make her own mac and cheese(from a box).
