Racing ‘Round the Track

I know, I know.  I have been remiss and HAVE NOT been in the kitchen as much lately.  I will be back in the kitchen again today.  I promise.  But we like to go out and enjoy life too.  A LOT! And there are only so many hours in the day.

Larry and I have gotten to the point where we don’t buy each presents so much any more, but rather give each other experiences instead.  For my last birthday (in February), Larry got me gift certificates to go race the track at the Unser Indoor Racing track.  We just now had time to go.  What a blast!!!!!  We had so much fun.  We will definitely be doing this again!  In case you had not yet realized this about me, and I will fill you all in on a little secret of mine ….. I am an adrenaline junkie.  There!  It’s out.  I said it.  Yes, I crave anything that really gets my blood pumping.  This was most definitely a 45 MPH thrill around the race course too.

We got suited up just like this model, then headed for the cars and the track.

Before heading off to the starting gate, we viewed some of the real race cars that Bobby Unser raced in his day.

Here we are at the starting gate.  The engines are revving, and we are ready to go.IMG_0567

The flag waves us off and the race begins.  (This is not us racing).

As you can see, we had a blast and are raring to go again, SOON!
