The National Drags

This weekend we went to the National Drag Races in Kent, which for anyone who doesn't know is just outside of seattle. It was such a blast! When we first got there the entrance was backed up onto the freeway for about 2-3 miles and then on the road off of the freeway for about the same distance. Luckily we were on the Harley, and just drove around all of them on the shoulder, and once we got in to where all of the parking was we got to park right next to the entrance! Yay for motorcycles! (I was instructed as soon as we got off of the bike that I had to take a picture of all of the motorcycles that we were parked by. What a boss! I'm not even sure why, his baby isn't even in it lol)
 
So we went in and first saw the funny cars and that was awesome!! I just loved all of the noise, you could feel it rumbling in your chest it was so loud. 




Those are just a couple of pictures of us waiting for the Top Fuelers to start, lucky for us the sun was out all day, it was beautiful! And somehow at this point in the day we ended up in the extreme redneck section with all the smokers, which was good because they were really funny to listen to and they actually knew a lot about the cars so I learned quite a bit, and it was bad because of the smoking :( oh well, we still had fun! Here are some pictures of the Top Fuelers, there is a video too but it won't upload :( so sorry everyone.




This week my sister-in-laws came home from BYU-I for their summer break and it has been so fun! I never realized how much I missed having more girls around, since all I had were 4 boys and mom! They came over for dinner last night and we watched Penelope which was adorable!! So needless to say I have to have girls around, not that I don't love my boys but I just can't live without my girls!!! Also, some other news (no I'm not pregnant) last week I got offered the JV Volleyball head coaching position at one of the high schools in this area, and yesterday I decided to take it. It was a really hard decision for me to make because I felt really inadequate and unprepared but I am organizing away to be ready by the end of August when the whole thing gets going full speed. I just need to get over my nervousness and remember that I CAN DO IT!! So everyone pray for me to be able to take the bull by the horns! Also we Shavers are in the middle of getting ready for their huge family reunion in Yellowstone so we are pretty busy with that too! And hopefully on our way there we will be able to stop through CDA and say hi to everyone!! More after this weekends activities!

Love a very tired and overwhelmed Bizzer

Hey you! You didn't tell the "mean" part of the drag racing adventure...you know...the part where you kept calling me to HEAR the cars I couldn't SEE!!! Maybe next time. Tim had me researching local drag racing this afternoon. Oh, and by the way, you will be an incredible coach...because you care and because you paid very close attention as a player as to what worked and didn't...go get 'em!! Love, mom
