Another "Party!"

Today Mama, Papa, Great Grandpa, Nana, and Gramps all came to watch the boys' soccer game (which ended in a torrential rainfall!) Nana, Gramps, my sister's and my brother's families joined us later for a little birthday celebration for Nick and Curt. The kids all enjoyed the cake Nana brought and the adults, not only enjoyed the cake, but some fun time after the kiddos went to bed!

Our Saturday morning started early with an 8am soccer game! We ended our day with some sparklers before we watched the Swamp Fox Festival fireworks in Marion that we can see from our street!

Nick's Racing Day!

Today we headed to Knoxville so that Nick could race his own late model! He was very excited and we couldn't wait to watch him! We got him a "racing experience" for his birthday, so he has been eagerly anticipating this day!

After listening to some instructions, the group that Nick was in walked across the track to the pits to get all ready to race!

There is Nick, all suited up!

And here he is, getting into the race car!!!

It was time for Nick to take the track! It was awesome watching him leave the pit area and make his way onto the track!



Nick did so good!!! He was so excited after driving the car! This was such a great experience and I am so glad that Nick got to check this off his bucket list today!

Hawkeye Challenge...

After an awesome pregame dinner of wings, these guys are ready to watch the Hawkeye game tonight! They think they are going to stay awake for the whole game...

Ben's trying to look excited, but his yawn got in the way!

 Ben didn't make it! He fell asleep and slept through Nick yelling at the tv!

Conner pretty much stayed awake, but he was definitely ready for bed at 10:00 when the game ended!
