We headed to Wendover, NV to watch my Dad at World Finals at Bonneville. We did not know what to expect, and ended up having a great time. It was so much fun to watch my Dad race, see everyone's reactions to his car and just experience the 'old school' car world. Although there is a lot of down time, we had a great time with my parents, Williane, and the Pit Crew (Mike & Ron). I'm so proud of you Dad! The work and dedication you put into this race was quite astonishing, and I'm so honored to call you my Dad!
|Good Morning Salt Flats!|

|Go 8118 - Robert Saw from Powell Butte|
|Getting taken to the starting line|
|Getting ready to watch Bob Bob run for the first time|
|Making friends with the starting crew|
|Waiting for Bob Bob to get cleared....rollover accident had just happened. A little weird looking at you dad strapped into the car ready to go, and plume of black smoke appears from a crash.|

|Alice & Bob Bob|
|Are we on the moon dad?|
|The fenders draw quite a bit of interest from the spectators|
|Getting buckled up by Mike & Ron|
|And here we go....|
|We got to play a little bit too...riding Mike's fun little bike|
|First time on a 'motorcycle'|
|Kyle was obsessed with the salt. If he wasn't licking it off the ground & tires, he was taking it off all the equipment & cars.|
|Woo Hoo, the parachute came out (2nd run of the day no parachute came out - ooops)|
|Bye Bye Wendover, until next year.....|

I have not been the best picture taker this year, so here is a August/September download of photos from my phone.
|We went camping in McCall with Gramie & BobBob, here is the tree swing the kids were obsessed with.|
|Kyle checking out the hot air balloons that they light up at night time.|
|Learning to Drive|
|Tired kiddos after a day on the boat with the Hopstads|
|Up, up and away. The kids got to ride up in the balloons|
|Rowan & Kyle enjoyed their time on the ground more than in the balloons|
|Our first inappropriate public pee incident. Yep, at the Dutch Goose. Classy!|

It's that time of year, Racing at Bonneville! We're heading down there for a few days to see what this thing is all about. My folks got down there yesterday, and are in line for the Tech Inspection. I'm hoping the guy drinking a beer is not one of the 'Techs'!
Good Luck Dad!!!!!!
