{Racy} Weekend

Haha, I'm so clever. The races were great this past weekend - the soap box derby was the best, though. The cars were hilarious, there was an easily accessible beer garden {très important}, & a lot of our friends were there as well.

The H1N1 team was my fave. Their car was a little pig.
It ended up losing a wheel or something...

There were puppies there as well....

This pic pretty much sums up the event. Note the flask in one hand while being pushed by a dude with a PBR. Not a lot of the cars made it to the finish line.

The horse races were another story - always exciting, of course, but w a a a y too crowded. This was the best shot I could get. I cropped out a lady with a scrunchie. Yes, you read that correctly.

Anyway....
baking some malted cupcakes today...I'll let you know how they turn out.
Happy Monday!

I'm loving that a guy has a flask at a soap box derby! And you saw a lady with a scrunchie the same weekend? Are you sure you didn't come to Florida this weekend? It looks like a fun weekend and I can't wait to hear about those cupcakes!

The Soap Box Derby rocks! "Easily accessible beer garden" is one of my favorite descriptive phrases.
