Downhill derby

Every year since we move to the city we've talked about going to our neighborhood's Soapbox Car Derby and we've never managed to go (side note, it seems that the year we moved here was the first time they held this event. Who knew)  This year, encouraged by my Soapbox Derby loving father, we went! (Sadly mon Amour was out of town, so we have to go next year!)

It was a perfect day for such an event!

The girls were intrigued!

And happy to spend time with Nana and Grandpa

The race was a lot of fun, but eventually we got hungry.  Fortunately there was an adorable diner right there by the race course. Pancakes all around! Yum!

We will most definitely be going back next year. It was low key, but exciting, competitive but really just tons of fun
