Weekend Wrap-Up

Date Night with Daddy

The NASCAR races are in Charlotte/Concord this week and Mr. Just Keep Talkin' took Kangaroo Girl to the truck races Friday night. Usually Kangaroo Girl has a standing invitation to spend the night at Grandmommy's on Friday nights but we promised her a trip to Chuck E. Cheese and she could spend the day at Grandmommy and Granddaddy's on Saturday and even wear her pajamas all day. It worked!

So Mr. JKT and Kangaroo Girl set out on their Daddy Date while Monkey Boy and I hung out at Grandmommy's. They went to the Amber House in Charlotte, as mentioned in one of my earlier posts, then hit the Chuck E. Cheese in Concord. Mr. JKT gave the Cheese a thumbs up, he said it was a nice one with a big indoor playground and a carrousel. Then they headed out to Lowes Motor Speedway for the truck races.

They met up with some friends from Lincolnton who had also brought their kids which really cut down on the boredom factor for KG. Said friends reserved a space in the infield. A big camper/bus pulled into the space beside them and KG had to take a tour of it! She and Daddy even went up on top where they had lawn chairs set up and got a great view of the track. Then they took a tour of the track, looked at all the rednecks then oohed and aaahed at the luxury campers/tour buses the drivers live in. They had such a good time and they returned home at 11:30 pm. Kangaroo Girl said "It was so loud and the trucks went VRRRRRRROOOOM!" LOL!

I went to the same race a few years ago and it really was neat. Lowes Motor Speedway is a nice track. I'd like to see a race in the stands and listen to the commentary on headphones.

Mr. JKT returned to the track last night to watch the All Star Race and it was driver Dale Jarrett's last race. For the his final lap, he drove a UPS truck around the track (his sponsor is UPS).

It was a fun night for them and the weather was perfect. Thanks for reading!
