Then the man started thinking. WHY does he do that??
He was thinking this last week that he would like to go to the NASCAR race in Kansas but when he looked it up, he knew we couldn't get the tickets in that short amount of time. Oh well, maybe next year. Then Friday night was movie night at the Traver house with all five of us lounging around in front of the tv watching Rise of the Guardians. We had tacos for dinner. Michael got "hot sauce in his eyes" (his way of saying he cried during the movie). Then we went to bed after it was over. Some time in the middle of the night his stupid belly started hurting (ha ha, you are welcome Michael...) and at 2:30 a.m. he figured it out. I was taking him this weekend to the race.
Oh well, with the secrecy gone, we went about our Saturday and started packing. I had to go to food pantry first - this is my fave day every month. And Jay at UMC gave me an opportunity for summer that I am super excited about, but I won't go into details here. This is all about Mr. Traver.
We left home Saturday around 6:30 and got to Lathrop at 11:30. I kid you not. 5 hours to go 2.5 hours. I won't even elaborate.
Sunday morning came, we dropped off the kiddos with Darcie Sellers (lifesaver!!) and off to Kansas we went.
I'd love to say we took lots of pics, but between the two of us we managed to bring 4 sets of dead or almost dead batteries. Yep, that's how we roll. So we have a few. I looked like I was going to a Mizzou game with my MU tshirt, MU sweatshirt, MU visor, MU sunglasses, and MU cooler. And the funny thing? I didn't plan that. It just happened.
Tate somebody sang national anthem
There was a KLOVE car!
Race was good, I read a book, slept through 50 laps. Then Michael woke me up to tell me he was going to the bathroom. Within seconds from leaving, everyone around me stood up and clapped and yelled then grabbed their stuff and started leaving. Yep, the man got up to go to the bathroom on the last lap. I had to tell him on the way back to the van who won. Ha. But it was still a great time and we learned a lot. Don't need a lot of food or drink because you will not eat it. It is much too exciting to eat. Or you're asleep.
