Rockford Speedway

I took 4 grown kids(my husband, middle son, youngest son, Phillip) and 6 little kids to the Speedway Saturday night.
Blake(9) Cohl(9) Chloe(6) Breanna(3) Cadin(3) Caden(3)
It was kids night and the speedway had a candy scramble and a school bus jump. The kids loved it. I was afraid the noise would be too much for them but it didn't even phase them at all. I wish I would have taken my camera. The look on Cadin's face when he saw those race cars was so precious. He thought Lighting McQueen had come to life. The two girly girls really got into it. Uncle Jamie was so proud. They were screaming for the pink 51 car to win. I think every car they wanted to win was pink. LOL. They enjoyed tons of snacks cotton candy, nachos, popcorn, french fries, and pops besides the candy they found in the scramble. Of course they all had to have a racing flags which soon turned into swords. We were at the speedway from 6:30pm to 11pm and not one single fight or tear. The kids loved the playground and would run back and forth to watch the cars zoom by then back to the playground again. It worn them out even the big kids. Everyone was fast asleep by midnight! It was a great night.

  1. It sounds like a great time April. Brings back memories of when I was a kid. One of the only things I can remember doing with my dad is going to the speedway. I remember playing on the playground too. And the school bus races ;^)
