4th of July

For the 4th of July, we went to Bandimere Speedway for the "Family Fun Day" and JetCar National Race. (More Little Man heaven. :) )There were other race cars as well, and booths with a pie-eating contest, a watermelon contest, a magic show, lots of food, jumpy castles and other family events.

We had a fun day!

Here are WeaverDad and the kids. (Little Man calls this style of cars with the thing on the hood "engine cars". )Here we all are with the only female driver of a Jet Car. She and her husband both race. Her car is called the "Her-icane".
Here are the kids in her husband's car:

Punkin got to be an assistant in a magic show! This and the fireworks
were the highlight of her 4th of July.
Here are two of the jet cars in action:
Drag car race. Can you tell how far you can see? Way in the background -
that's Denver. We could see at least 6 firework shows from here!

That sounds like fun. My uncle used to have (and drive) the only dragster with twin jet engines, Thunderstruck. I'm pretty sure he sold it though.

I have a few boys who would have loved to spend the 4th with your family. Looks like a great time.
