Dearest Adam & Andrew,
I don't want to ever hear you say that your mother didn't love you enough or never took you anywhere fun as a child. Your best friends' mothers and I took all of you boys to the racetrack to a Mother & Son night out. Had it not been scheduled during a flash flood it would have been great fun for all. However, you and your friends still had a blast while us moms walked around like drenched rats. If there is anything in the world I can't stand, it's being soaked, especially when wearing blue jeans. There is just something about the way jeans stick to my legs that makes me absolutely crazy.
That however is neither here nor there. I had fun in the downpour, in spite of my discomfort, because seeing you smile and the faces you make as you enjoy exploring your world, makes it all worth it to me. There is nothing that warms my soul quite like spending time with my sons and seeing them in true wonderment.
First up, hot dogs under the pavilion
Soaked but Happy
I'm thankful that I grabbed the boys raincoats, at least their arms were still dry after all the puddle splashing, even if nothing else was.
I'll definitely have some memories to keep from this event (even if they are soggy)!
