We also went go-karting at Austin Park and Pizza. There was an adult race track where adults could drive with kids, and then there was a “junior” race track. Rilyn and her friend wanted to drive their own cars so they headed over to that line. Meanwhile I was watching James and Asher having the time of their lives!
When James and Asher’s race was done, Rilyn and her friend were still in line…didn’t make sense, until I saw that they were chit chatting and people (boys!) were just cutting in front of them! They didn’t even have a clue. So James marched over there and took care of that! Meanwhile, I took Ella on the adult side. She had the time of her life too!
Rilyn was loving driving all by herself!
But there was this boy (in the green car) and they had it out for each other! I love how they are having a stare down in the middle of the race!
I think Rilyn bumped him here!
Get after him girl!
Alas, she was left in the dust, unable to control her turn! Boo! I would of loved to see her peel past him!
Fast forward 4 days later, and we were asked to go go-karting again, this time at a “no funny business, this here is REAL!” go karting place! 😉 I hadn’t been go-karting in 10 years, and this past week, I went twice!
These cars go up to 45 mph, and I made the mistake of trying to race with mostly men. And men who are extremely competitive. And so I was scared pretty much the whole race, just trying to stay alive, I got bumped, and had whiplash for half a day. It was an experience, and I won’t do it again!
Here is the crew who raced

I’m beating James! (You are timed and he actually lapped me 4 times during the 15 lap race!) He came in first out of 12, and I came in last! Ha!

Everyone, except me, did a second race. I took this picture instead!
