Summer is in full swing around our house. Kids are in summer camp (hallelujah) and so far so good. We’ve got ballet, cub scouts, pre-school, field trips, swimming lessons…we are busy! But it’s summer and we’re having a blast!
Last weekend we drove to Indianapolis to attend a diesel event. Travis helps on the pit crew of two trucks that race all over. He usually makes it to 4-5 races a year…I usually make it to 2 or 3. This time, we brought Jacob and Delaney. It was a blast! Best part…we WON!!! (Jacob was just a teensy over the moon about this.) Seth Sullivan is on the far left of the photo below and he’s the driver who owned the day. Dale Smith is second from the right and he owns the truck. Congratulations Seth and Dale!
Funny thing about these diesel weekends…I used to not enjoy them…AT ALL!! I found it annoying that Travis wanted to spend so much money traveling, I was annoyed by the whole thing when we got there, and honestly…I could care less about black smoke, horsepower and whether or not someone “red-lighted”.
But over the years I’ve changed my tune. I really look forward to going now. The truth is, we’ve made some fantastic memories at these events. We have some amazing lifelong friends that we’ve made along the way. And most importantly, Travis and I get to have the experiences together. Sometimes we bring the kids, sometimes it’s just us…but one thing is a given – we will always have a great time.
And yes…I still could care less about black smoke or horsepower. But these days I definitely care about whether or not someone “red-lighted”.
See you at Scheid’s!
