The Great Wolf Lodge!

Hi all!

In trying to catch up with events over the past month, the retelling is not complete without talking about the Great Wolf Lodge!

Megan with the wolves!

Since our family is growing, Mom and Dad thought it was important that the family we have now had some good time together to bond. So, Dad took some vacation, and the family packed up and went to The Great Wolf Lodge in Concord NC.

The family spent 24 full hours at the park, and had a great time!

We got to visit the bear...
played in the water, and just had a lot of good fun! Megan really liked her time there, but I think the whole family agrees that "84 degree" water sounds fun, but when you are soaked, it is REALLY cold. We haven't seen so many kids running around with purple lips ever!

The family had a great time, and if you would like to see more pictures, just head over to the link below. The NEW family will head back in about 2 years, and we expect to have more fun then!

Ps. Scary talking tree -- we will hear your bed time story next time!

Still Alive!

Good week all! Sorry we have not been posting as much, but we are quickly approaching our due date of May 11th, 2010 for the birth of our second daughter!

What has happened since March 18th? Good question!

Dad has had a little spare time to get two races in (quite rare these days). First, he did a rallyX at Four Oaks with THSCC. Dad finished 3rd overall and 3rd in class. Not bad for a car that isn't supposed to be competitive, relative to his competitors!

Daddy Picture!
Following the rallyX weekend, Dad went back to ViR and entered a CircuitX. This is a race where Dad races on a real road course, but speeds don't exceed 100 mph. Dad had a dry course and a COMPLETELY soaked course. In the wet, Dad was the fastest, and in the dry, Dad did OK on a complete rally setup. Life is full of compromises!

No pictures this time, but Dad loves it when people ask him how much MORE power he has, and he just let's them know it is a SOFTER car with stock power. ;)

Dad has another RallyX coming up on April 17-19th where he is setting up and teaching. In July, Dad has another CircuitX at ViR, and that will more than likely be it for a while.

Thanks for reading, and now I need to get busy writing another post about the girls!
