We have been looking forward to this event for weeks and weren’t sure if it would be canceled from Hurricane Ian sweeping through Central Florida only a few days ago. Not knowing if roads would be flooded, we took the chance and went for an almost hour long car ride to find out. We were pleasantly surprised to see a good turn out of Corvettes and spectators.
Corvettes are Liam's favorite sports car. He has plenty of models on his dresser to prove it. I told Liam if I were to buy a car just for the sheer fun of it, it would be a Corvette. He was thrown off when I said that because my favorite car is a Nissan Skyline GTR R33. Those were never allowed into the US. I explained that with a Corvette, for the money, you get a fast and fun car. It's also easy to modify and parts are plentiful. He was pleased to hear.
The boys don't always appreciate how loud cars can be,
but they sure do love to see them go!
I still think about how thankful I am to be home now on weekends to be able to go to things like this car show. It was fun for me. It had three of my favorite things: It was sunny, free, and it was with my family. It created bonding moments with my boys.
This car had a cool black wrap on it that words just can't describe and photos can't do justice.
Poor Connor didnt like the revving from some of the more modified cars, but he still needed a drink.
The boys were stopped and given these balloon swords by a nice gentleman that was wearing a Vietnam Veteran hat. I saw a handful of those hats while we were there and was thankful that those men made it home to be able to enjoy events like this!
Afterwards, we decided to go to Texas Roadhouse because we had a gift card. Courtney and I used to go to that restaurant often when we were dating. After eating, I wasn’t overly impressed. It wasn’t nearly as good as I remember it. I prefer home cooking. Unless it’s chipotle.
Courtney commented about how we were all in the vortex watching the TV. We don't watch much tv, if at all. Mainly because its hard to stop staring at the screen once you start. We all need less screen time and more family time in our lives.
