Boys will be boys

Ok so you see it started out by mom asking Devin to simply haul the old basketball goal off. A simple request turned into a fun night for the boys. A friend, Kelby Taylor was over and they were supposed to do moms chore I asked of them but as you can see they saw potential in the old thing. They first tried to ride the thing out to the dump pile but when that faultered out came the tools, and waa-laa you have a boys new toy. Hook it ot a four wheeler and risk your life and limb and fun can be found in anything. Yes the moms were watching thats Karalee (Kelby's mom) and we have learned to pick our battles. They don't know the word slow and they are both racers so they know no fear. We just sat back and laughed as they drug each other around and did a few flips as they catapulted each other around the corners. I must say though Devin was not as kind to Kelby on the turns. Then there is my sweet little girl, Kaelie. Yes she was mad cause she wasn't home and saw the pictures later and was not in on the fun. What kind of rednecks am I raising anyway?

Weekend of racing

Here is Darin at Midway Sunday waiting for the kids to go out on the track. I am really excited that I got to sit down and scrap with all my new stuff that Kendra gave me the other day. She is a great inspiration. And go to the Scrap Nook with the gift card Martin gave me for my bday.
Here is Devin buckling up and going out on the track. Does he look a little annoyed with me taking his picture? Yea he is but he loves this later. He took second place Sunday at Midway.
Here is my little dirt princess, Kaelie. She did not have such a great Sunday but had fun racing. She loves this dirty stuff so much. She is just flat out ingnoring me. Have agreat day.

Another day in the Dirt

Here is how our summer is going. Dirt, dirt, dirt...and a little more dirt. I swear if they are not racing they are on the track in our back yard racing and jumping the four wheelers. I don't think my house will ever be clean. Or my pool..they think it is a giant bathtub. I guess you might be wondering who these people are? Lindsy's boyfriend, Derik, decided to take her for a swim (isn't that nice of him?) Devin decided to help of course, and our next door neighbor, Cassidy, joined in to. Kaelie is shooting bottle rockets with her boyfriend Collin, and seeing who they can hit out in the field. Dang we really are rednecks aren't we. My parents really did not raise me this way, sorry mom and dad but I have become a HICK, and I think we like it.

Weekend of Racing

So the weekend was full of racing finally and no rain. Wow that was an accomplishment of its own. Anyway... Kaelie ended the weekend with a win at Midway and was very happy with the result! Here she sits waiting her turn on the track and then checking her tire pressures before heading out. Devin is hiding in the background helping out. Devin by the way, finished third to Brandon Kidwell. It was a great race Brandon.

Here is a picture of Kaelie crossing the finishline at the track at Midway (Lebanon). On our way home last night the sunset was so beautiful and we thought we would share the view with you of our great Ozarks sunsets. Have a great week.
