Like Redneck Disneyworld! :-)

Thanks to my wonderful mom & stepdad we were able to go to our first nascar race in Talladega, Alabama. David usually likes to catch the races on tv...his dads a big fan, & I usually like to catch the last 5 laps, but actually being there right next to the track has made me a big time fan. It was soooo fun! Because my stepdad wasn't feeling well they decided to give us not only their tickets, but their infield, frontrunners passes...which means our RV was parked right up against the fence to turn 4...it was awesome! We brought all the kiddos of course, Corynn survived the 6 1/2 hour trip & is now, along with her mother, a Dale Jr. fan...he's our nascar boyfriend. We decided to make this a yearly trip b/c we enjoyed it sooo much.

Best place to watch the race...on top of the motor home of course :)

I was worried that Corynn would be freaked out by the loudness of the cars, but our little fan LOVED it & would wave to the cars when they zoomed by!

I was a little concerned when we finally got there & found out we were camping next to this....yes, that is a slide, & no thats not a firemen's pole

but they turned out to be the greatest neighbors & let the boys slide down the slide.
one of the ladies there loved Corynn & told me that she & her husband have been interested in adopting internationally for a long time & were so happy to meet a family that has done it.

The kids enjoying the Talladaga, Nascar Kid Fun Zone...

I told the boys not to get on the track....


We set out Corynn's pool, but all she'd do is walk up & put her hand in the water...& watch her two big brothers "swim" in it....

see ya next year!

Random pics...

This is a balloon that was tied to the banister in our foyer when we came home from Guat that was untied that day & went to the ceiling...it's still there.

Mommy's little helper...

We went to the New Orleans Zoo last weekend & had a great time.
This is an attempt to take a picture of the kids together...Collin & Cam couldn't stop pushing each other off the elephant statue long enough, so this is the pic of the kids "together" :) ah boys

this is a goat that was in the petting zoo ...we called him "hill billy"

Blowing kisses..
