Wordless Wednesday ~ Soap Box Derby

A few weeks ago, our town hosted a soap box derby.  We first heard about it when it was held last year, but didn't get the chance to see it then since Joe was working.  We were pleased when we learned that the derby was being held on Joe's weekend off this year.

We were up and out early that morning, so I grabbed a banana on my way out the door, figuring Grace would want breakfast while we were out.

For the entire day, "main street" in our town was closed for the annual event.  Finding parking was a challenge and we had to park a few blocks away.  Good thing we had Grace's stroller in the truck.

We were in a hurry to get out of the house that morning and I forgot to check to see if my camera was in my bag.  Luckily, I was able to snap a few pictures with my phone.

Grace enjoyed watching the little cars ride past and was cheering them all on!  Go!  Go!  Go!  She also enjoyed seeing the people sitting along the sidewalk as we strolled up the street to show her where the starting line was.

We didn't stay for the entire derby since it's an all-day event including an awards ceremony, but it was enough to get Grace out of the house for a bit without spending any money!

Not spending money... you can still DO stuff and not spend money. It's great. :)
