A day at the track

We spent a good part of Saturday with Lisa's sister Jolene and her boyfriend Lonnie at Lowe's Motor Speedway, which is about 15 minutes from our house. It was cold but we had fun walking around and seeing all the different vendors and all the souvenirs and sampling the food. (Not me of course.) Jack had a great time seeing the race cars up close and one man even gave him a lug nut off one of the race cars as a sourvenir. Jo and Lonnie spoiled him as usual by buying him toys.

We also spent some time in their RV with their 3 dogs. That was really enjoyable despite being parked right next to some Michigan fans. And when we learned that Ohio State had lost to Purdue, of all teams, they actually didn't rub it in too much. Of course, they knew that I could always play the "App State card" at any time. There were lots of OSU fans at the track all lamenting the impending loss as the game was winding down.

But, other than that, we had a great time. We are planning a trip to Columbus for New Year's to visit them. Enjoy the pictures below.....
