These streets will make you feel brand new.

It's that time of the year again, time for the Toyota All Star Showdown! It also means it's road trip time. Ashley flys in tonight and we are leaving in the morning.

I am so excited for this year since Jay will be racing in the Super Late Model class on Friday night, live on Speed. My friend Jeff will be racing the West race on Saturday night, also live on Speed.

Can't wait for the open road, loud music, lots of laughs, taking pictures, forgetting about everything else except for having the time of my life..again :)

Monday Funday.

On Monday, I took the kids, along with my Sister and Ava to meet up in Seattle with Shae, Cadence, her mom Pam, Her cousin Heidi and her 3 kids for a fun day. We started at the Children's Museum and the kids loved it. There were so many exhibits for them to do. I think their favorite was the painting. I loved the Grocery store and Ava loved the discovery area where she could crawl around :)

Afterwards we went out to the Fountain at the Seattle Center. The kids thought that was about the coolest thing ever and I can't wait to take them back there in the summer when they can actually run through the fountain.

We ended our day with a trip to the top of the Space Needle. Not my favorite thing as I am afraid of heights, but the kids both loved that too. When we first got to Seattle, Cooper kept talking about the "Space Noodle" and I told him after we went to the Museum, we were going to go to the top of the Space Needle..his response: Why?
Haha :) I was worried he would be scared but he wasn't at all. He thought it was so cool that we could see the helicopter on top of the Komo 4 news building. Campbell thought it was cool that she could see our car :) And she loved to keep asking me how scared I was. I did just fine except when they got too close to the railings!

All in all it was a great way to spend the day and I can't wait until our next outing :)

Making me smile.

For winter break homework, Campbell had to keep a journal of the things that she did each day. I looked through her journal one morning and found this. This is in her own words and I thought it was just too cute.
