Fun Day











Tracy and I had another Great day out. We left home as soon as he got home from work and headed to the strip for the NASCAR Car Haulers parade. The crowd was smaller this year and we got a great spot for viewing and taking pictures. I have lots more pictures in my Webshots albums (link in the sidebar). There are two haulers you won't see, I just don't like Jeff Gordon or Jimmy Johnson so if you are a fan of them you won't see a pic.
After the parade we just HAD to go the the M&M store and see what they had new. Tracy got me a die cast Kyle Bush car. Being he and his brother are hometown boys I have to root them on. I love the way Kyle's car is painted with all the M7M's on it. Then it was on to Michael's for some shopping. Got some really cute stuff for my shelf and things for the "Color the World" exchange. Since we spent every extra penny we had last month on the new computer I didn't get my Birthday dinner so Tracy said this would be a good time to celebrate my birthday with a nice lunch. We headed for Olive Garden and really had a great lunch. The food was wonderful (but I ate way to much) and the service was the best we've had in a very long time. Our tea glasses were never empty and the bread sticks just kept coming without even having to ask for more.
Today will be just for stitching. With all the people in town for the race I'm not going out again until after the races and the crowds are gone.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

Oh how I would have loved to be there!!! I didn't know there was a car haulers parade. I was rooting for Kyle too just so he could be the first to win 3 races in a single weekend. I saw him win the Nationwide, but not the first race. It's hard for me to pick a favorite racer though, I like too many of them LOL

You are too funny for not taking photos of the drivers you don't like!!! LOL I wonder if they only do this in Vegas... I have never heard of it when they come to MIS..would be cool to see.
