Three things I learned while away at the Indy 500.
My almost two year old can now reach the locks in most public rest room stalls. (Trying to use the potty while the door opens 6-8 times is not easy.)
The stuff that you need to take to keep 3 kids content for a four night trip fills the back of a large pick up truck.
My three kids can actually talk and bicker and fight nonstop (and not sleep at all) on an 11 hour car ride.
…but we’ll still be going again next year,
I already ordered our tickets.
Some more photos
The twins rendition of climbing the fence like the winner did. Albeit this fence is for the Formula 1 track in the inside of the speedway and not the actual Indy 500 fence.
This years race winner Helio Castroneves (he won Dancing with the Stars a few years ago.) This was taken as he signed autographs the day before the race….as Jarod cried by my side because he wanted to wait in the insanely long line to get his autograph… and I being the mean mommy refused.
A long Saturday at the track. She fell asleep on a Firestone tire poster. The untold part of this photo was that we stopped to take it because an overly ’spirited’ college boy had been mooning some friends in the other direction and we needed to divert the twins attention this way.
