Bikes, Road Trips, and Lots of Dirt


This was me and my sunnies in Santa Clara yesterday at Blake's BMX Race. We had driven 10 hours to get their from another qualifier race that was out in the boonies near Utah the day before.

To rewind, we left friday night, for the first race out in the middle of the desert. It was raining, and muddy, but Blakey got 2nd place...
You can see him and the guy on the track in his little rain jacket...

He even let Ellie hold his trophy!

Then we found out he had another big qualifier race, in Santa Clara, California, pretty much right across from where they're building the new 49er's stadium, which was a 10 hour drive from where we were. And we only brought enough clothes for the one race.
So we drove and drove....and saw beautiful sky pictures like this:



We had to stop at some outlet stores, to buy socks and some clean clothes because we were covered in dirt. We went to a Vans outlet store, so we probably looked like we were sponsored my Vans, because that's all we had on! ha ha ha ha
We had to go to Target to...then we drove more.....
I edited a video.......which I uploaded today on  youtube:
while the kids slept, and we finally got in at 3am!

Then this is what the track looked like....all nice and sunny. And Blakey was headed out of the gates.....
He got 1st in one of the motos, then got 5 in the main race.
He was not to happy, but sometimes when you don't win, you learn more than when you win.
The winner was sitting next to us, so Blakey gave him a high-5, then went and got his big trophy he got the day before out, to hold.

 Ellis in her new shirt we got at Target, and her Otter Pop (they love going to the races because of the otter pops, I think!)...she loved her princess chair too:

And late last night after another 5 hour drive home, a stop at a fun Mel's diner for 50's style food and oreo milkshakes, unloaded the car, and bath time...
Blakey gave Ellie a little pretend trophy to hold, and hey both carried these trophies around the house and going up to Jordan's room to show them Ellie's trophy and looking at all Jordan's old BMX trophies...they are so funny...they they fell fast asleep.

And this is what tired Kandee looks like, after a fun and long day of racing, roadtrips, unloading the car, baths.....getting little people to sleep....

Huge hugs, from a much more rested and showered, Kandee
