We had another great trip to the beach. We had fun swimming, “surfing”, playing in the sand, spending time with family and riding rides.
We went to a car show in Charlotte at the Z Max Speedway. James was in heaven getting to see life sized hot wheels. J kept calling them hot rods, but James prefers to call them hot rides. I like it. Gracie also liked looking at all the cool cars. The nice guys at the race car booth even let them climb in and sit behind the wheel. And I mean climb literally, it was a real race car, so no working doors, they went through the window. At the end of the event a bunch of the hot rides lined up on the drag way and set a new world record for the most cars participating in a burnout. I think it was 74. Good times.
A few weeks ago we rode the light rail up to Charlotte and went to the Symphony’s Lollipop Series concert, it’s Symphony for kids. This particular concert also included dancers from the NC Dance Theater. They were performing different fairy tales. The kids loved it! Beforehand they had a musical “petting zoo” where the kids got to try out different instruments. We will definitely go back next year. We also went to the Wells Fargo museum which had a lot of fun, hands-on activities.
