A Day at the Races
I'm happy to say I got almost everything on my list done on saturday, and so yesterday was able to take my oldest boy & a friend to a Canadian National Dirtbike event in Kamloops. (A 2 hour drive). It was hot & dusty & noisy & fun. We had to take a little ferry across the river, just a two-car rinky dink thing attached to a cable which was fun because the boys made it fun. I wanted to take a picture of it but didn't want to embarrass my son. Now I wish I had. As we were leaving, J asked
me..did you like it too mom? He's anxious that I had a good time, that it was not just for him that I went. Of course I had a good time....even if I hadn't enjoyed the races I enjoyed spending the day with him & getting to know his fairly new friend. (Who is quite talkative I must say!) Anyhow, here's some images, in hindsight I should've taken more of the surroundings....the crowd (maybe of the guy sitting next to me who had the most delightful irish accent...I could've listened to him talk all day), the lemonade stand that I didn't find until the end of the day, along with the washrooms with cold running water that I soaked my hat in cause I was so darned hot, the little guy who looked barely 2 years old in full dirtbike gear, the huge bike trailers and the Monster energy drinks everywhere you looked.
Yes, I guess I didn't do my duty as a photographer, now that I think of it. Oh well. Better luck next time.
