IT'S OFFICIAL

I AM THE BEST MOM EVER! ALL BECAUSE OF THIS...
WE TOOK THE BOYS TO AN ARENACROSS RACING EVENT. THEY ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! I HAD SO MUCH FUN SURPRISING THEM WITH THE BIG NIGHT OUT. I TOLD THEM I HAD A BIG SURPRISE COMING UP AND THEY KEPT TRYING TO GUESS WHAT IT WAS. MASON GUESSED GOING TO THE MOVIES. ANDREW GUESSED GOING TO MICHAEL'S (HIS COUSIN IN OKLAHOMA) OR CHUCK E. CHEESE. WHEN I FINALLY TOLD THEM A COUPLE OF HOURS BEFORE THE EVENT, YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN THEIR EYES POP OUT OF THEIR HEADS. THEY WERE SHOCKED THAT MOM WOULD COME UP WITH SOMETHING SO COOL. I KNOW DADDY REALLY ENJOYED THE RACES AND I MUST ADMIT THAT I DID TOO. IT WAS PRETTY AMAZING TO SEE THESE GUYS RACE THESE BIKES ON A SMALL TRACK AT HIGH SPEEDS AND MAKE THIS LOOK EFFORTLESS...IN BETWEEN THE PRO RACES, THEY HAD SOME AMATEUR RACES FEATURING KIDS AS YOUNG AS 4 YEARS OLD TO ADULTS RACING. MY FRIEND APRIL IS THE ONE WHO TOLD ME ABOUT THE EVENT. HER HUSBAND RACED AS AN AMATEUR AND WON HIS EVENT. THE BOYS HAD SO MUCH FUN CHEERING FOR HIM. IT WAS LOUD, DIRTY AND SMELLED LIKE EXHAUST...WHAT MORE COULD A BOY ASK FOR? THIS WILL BE SOMETHING THE BOYS WILL TALK ABOUT FOR A LONG TIME. THANKS AGAIN APRIL, FOR GIVING ME THE GOODS SO I COULD SNAG THE GREATEST MOM TITLE...UNTIL THE NEXT TIME I TRY TO TAKE THEM TO THE THEATER OR THE BALLET :-)

You do get the "Mother of the Year" award! What a fun outing with your boys! They will remember this night for years to come! We went to a similar show last summer and I was very entertained too!

Hope you have a great week!
