Burning Rubber

1.16.2012

After Jesse's first trip to the go-kart track he's been dying to go back to see if he could beat his record. We decided to take my parents there to see who was the fastest of us all.


We suited up and got ready for our time on the track.


Since we had Emerson with us we had to take turns. My Mom and I went first but not before I got some love from my favorite little good luck charm.






 While I'd love to say that we were the champions of our heat I have to be honest and tell you that we came in last place! I started off pretty good on the first lap but after I almost crashed into the wall a few times I chickened out and slowed WAY down! Then people started passing me left and right. Let's just say I don't think I have much of a future in racing.
Next,  Jesse and Michael got ready for their big race while Mimi, Emerson, and I hung out on the sidelines.


 Emerson was sad that she didn't get to race but she felt better when she learned that she won the prize for cutest baby in the world. ;)


The guys took their race a little bit more seriously! They didn't slow down for a second and there was some serious competition going on out there on the track.
Jesse was stoked because he had the best time of the day. His slowest time was about 30 seconds faster than my fastest time. What can I say- I'm just a completely awesome driver. Haha!
The champions:
It's amazing how something as simple as go-kart racing can be twice as fun when you are doing it with your very favorite people. We had such a good time even if we (Mom and I) got lapped a few times!

That looks like so much fun! I'm sure I would've really gotten scared too! I always feel like you get such an adrenaline rush from that kind of thing! :)
