Fastest Family Fun in Town

A few weekends ago we went to Lexi's first race. It was at a dirt track around here, technically a little drive, Baker, LA. I wasn't looking forward to it at all! But I sucked it up because I knew how badly the hubs wanted to go. When we got there we bought Lexi the little ear muff guys to protect her ears. I also brought her ear plugs but she hates them. I got settled while Ryan took Lexi to get some snacks. While they were gone the ambulance pulled up just in case (I am TERRIFIED of ambulances- I get really bad anxiety when I see them).  Then, I was looking around and saw all these signs saying things like 'enter at your own risk' and 'this is a dangerous place, stay alert at all times, debris flies frequently'. And then the races started and my anxiety went through the roof! I was like what?! Why are we here with our baby? I was so scared! I eventually calmed down but it really threw me off how bad my anxiety was. Lexi LOVED IT! She had so much fun it was a little ridiculous. We stayed in the stands for a good while and every time that the cars would speed by she would crack up and wave. It was the sweetest thing ever. Then we went down and let her run around for a while. She had so much fun. The worst part? We have disposables hanging around that need to be used so I put them on her. She LEAKED THROUGH it!! That doesn't even happen to me in cloth! Then they didn't have a changing table, obviously, so I had to use my blanket on the ground to change her. When we wen to leave Ryan let her walk to the car and she got a good ways in front of us, turned around, and ran as fast as she could back to the track. Then, she cried when we left. She was very sad to leave.



awww, she loved it! so fun.
