Flying High and Crashing Cars

Last weekend was a blast!  Friday, Momma and I went out to celebrate our 6th Anniversary (we’ve been together for 10 years now)!  Then we went to an awesome dinner at Tony’s Italian Restaraunt here in Columbus, and ended the night out by seeing College the movie…pretty freakin’ funny flick!

Saturday we had big plans.  We drove Ace and his cousin, Olivia, to the town where I grew up to check out a Fly-In.  Here we got to see a bunch of cool air planes.  Instead of blabbing on and on about the planes, I’ll just post some pics…




Then we were off to the Demolition Derby!  One of my favorite things to watch!

My brother had been building a car to drive in the derby.  We went down to watch him wreck his car, but he had to back out at the last minute due to some car troubles.  Oh well, we still had a good time!

Have I ever mentioned that Ace likes anything with wheels?  Well, he does…and he loves derby cars!  He ket pointing at the cars and blabbering in giberish…that means he likes what he sees.  😀

The derby was very crowded and we were late to find a seat, so we had to stand and watch.  Of course there were a few rednecks (I fit right in. 😀 ) standing in front of us so the kids could not see.

So, here comes dad/uncle to the rescue!  Go go human pedestal!

At the end of a very long day we all had a very good time.  I’m glad that Ace and Olivia enjoyed the planes and the derby so much.  Now I know I have someone to watch the derby with for years to come.  😀

    Sounds like lots of fun. I wounder if my daughter will like drag racing. One question for you, Does Tony own every Italian restaurant? Our Italian restaurant belongs to Tony and the Italian worker at my wifes job is Tony as well.

  2. Looks brilliant.

    I love the way you are the big uncle as well as dad.

    Seriously cool.

    JustDaddys…Demo derbys are sooo coool! I wish I had the time and money to build a car. I would definitely be driving and not a spectator. 😀
