Boys Night Out

18 Aug 2008

I took the boys to their first demolition derby last night. I'd forgotten how much fun it was to see cars bashing each other into pieces.

My 9 year old was rather bored by it, not surprising considering his attention span. My 7 year old was a little freaked out, which I should have anticipated. They both wanted to go home after the first heat. So I called grandmom and took them out to meet her so they could go home. I missed the second heat, but I could hear it ... :>

My 14 year old and my 5 year old both loved it. They had a blast. Several tires were knocked completely off, some bumpers, a couple of fires ... y'know ... mayhem. This one car had it's front tire knocked flat ... not a flat tire, but the wheel and tire was knocked 90 degrees so that it was flat on the ground and he was still driving! It was impressive. He actually won the entire thing.

I was able to snap one shot, not of the winner, but another car that really impressed my youngest:

I first thought you must have taken the photo to record evidence of that cool hat the guy in front of you was wearing. Then I noticed the banged-up car. I guess that's pretty cool, too. :)
