Overdue Buddy Walk
Let's see...I guess I'm only 6 days late, but it feels like a couple of weeks! Last Saturday was our Richmond Buddy Walk. We had it at the Richmond International Raceway. We had all our activities in the infield. (Is that what it's called? You'd think after living in Charlotte, NC for 15 years I'd know a little something about NASCAR, but I don't.) Then, we walked on the actual racetrack! It was pretty cool on the banked curves--we had Hannah in the stroller and had her zipping all around like she was Lightning McQueen (but we call her Lightning McNan).
Chris and I worked in the registration tent, which was fun. We did get to sneak out to watch Hannah's dance team perform. They did great, even though it was sprinkling a little bit. Fortunately it never did pour, though it threatened.
James, Kate and Hannah had fun watching other performers and checking out the firetrucks. I wasn't thinking at all, or I would have gotten tickets to take a ride in the pace car around the track. Hannah would have loved it. Maybe next year!
