This weekend, we had two fun adventures. First, since Tempe and Robert love to watch the car races on the weekend, we decided to visit the Dominion Raceway. The track itself is small, and no matter where you sit, you have a great view. We got there around 5pm, grabbed a bite to eat, then sat out on the bleachers to watch the cars roll. We were surprised Tempe didn't fall asleep on the way home with all the fresh evening air and the excitement of the cars, but when she got home, she immediately wanted to read one of her books. It was a fabulous evening.
The next morning (Sunday), we woke up and drove out to our friends' farm. They have a sick family member, and are going to be out of town, so we went down to help them out with a few chores, from mowing their fields, to fixing fences, to planting flowers, herbs and vegetables, and spreading mulch. At the end of the afternoon, Tempe got to ride on their old horse, DC. DC retired last year from a girls' camp that our friends own, so he was happy to have a little girl riding on him. Tempe rode bareback and even got to practice her "round the world" trick. Some of our work friends were there too with their kids so it was a fun-filled adventure and fun helping out some friends.
