This year Moose has become obsessed with Mario Kart Wii. He talks about it, looks at pictures, thinks about it (constantly), draws the tracks. At school, at home. It's all over. His Mario clothing has never gotten so much wearing.
When the kids had a 6 day break from school in October, Big A found something awesome:
a go-kart track.
We packed up as a family (so loved having Big A take a day off to spend with us), and headed about an hour away with a big surprise for the kids.
The best part was Moose was able to race all by himself!
We started off racing doubles: Me and Squirt vs. Big A & Moose. They won. Squirt insists when I'm "smarter" I'll beat Daddy. Wow, thanks for that confidence booster. And it was hilarious because he just kept saying how smart Big A was and that I needed to be smarter. Oh boys.
I think we all had so much fun watching Moose race. And he did awesome. I think he ran into the sides once at the very start and then not again. I didn't even drive that well. It was so cool. He loved it as you can tell by the pictures.
We had a blast together but next time, I'll let Big A drive Squirt so he can be "smarter." Squirt keeps saying he wants to go back when he's 7 so he can race by himself. I think he'll be tall enough before then, but ok.
