We Did It! Wednesday~~Go Kart Night!!

Welcome to the 6th We Did It! Wednesday!
This fun event is designed to encourage investing
in our family's rich heritage by spending one on one time
with our kids and grandys, no matter their age.
As we share we get new ideas of ways to have fun

Just fill in your first name and URL on Mr. Linky
and post the above button with a link back here
so people can visit others who are participating.

We have a miniature golf place in the next little town
that recently added a go kart track. My Maddy was
just dying to go!! She had to watch at our last family
reunion until she finally got in a car with her fave aunt,
my sister Cindy. She became totally enthralled with
driving around this track, but there hadn't been a track
close by...


Here are Maddy and her best friend, Amanda
waiting patiently as a bunch of teens fill all
the cars and they have to wait.

Here they are in their cars before they started out!

Unfortunately, I couldn't get any other pics of
them driving. I can tell you this...

Maddy is ready for Nascar!!

She is constantly asking her sisters, me,
her Dad, anyone with wheels to take her go karting!!
She simply can't get enough! When we go to reunion
in July, we go to a place in Asheville called The Fun Depot
and their go kart track is two story...AND
now she can drive by herself!!

Look out Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart and
and all you who think you can drive!!!
Madison is RED HOT, and lightening fast!!
(ok as red hot and lightening fast as you can be
in a little car that goes what...15-20 mph??)
She has some serious skills, now!!
The next Danicka Patrick for sure!!

So what have you been doing??

Blessings to you sweeties!!


  1. GOOO!!! Madison!!!!!
    I love these pictures. What is more fun than being young and free?!
    By the way, I like the new picture of you by your profile, Becky! You look so cute and happy!!!

  2. Hi Becky,
    Maddy and Amanda sure look like they are having fun, I know where you will be spending a lot of time this summer. It has been some time since I tried it though. Maddy certainly looks like you very pretty !!

  3. Lucky Girls...That is so much fun! We have a place like that too but it was damaged by Hurricane Ike. Hopefully it will be ready by the summer.

    Ok...I thought I would share my daughters birthday for We Did It Wednesday. We had a wonderful, fun and relaxing day. You will find it right after the "Unexpected Visitor" post. It is simply titled "Happy Birthday Shelby"
    There are a lot of photo's so please give them time to load. I hope you enjoy!

  4. It looks like so much FUN! Go girls!


  5. I love the pictures. They surely had a wonderful time.

  6. Once they said that this kind of activity was meant for boys only, thanks God things have changed, so your Maddy can express her talent!

  7. Not participating today, want to leave the prayer request up for Debbie one more day. Know you'd understand!! BUT, we did this both summers we went to Myrtle Beach. The kids and hubby had a blast! Your daughter looks like she had sooooo much fun!!! Enjoy your Wednesday!!!

  8. What a fun event! Maddy is so cute I bet she is really fun little person to be with. Sounds like she has lots of enthusiasm, like her mama! Have a wonderful day dear friend:) Elena

  11. Hi Becky,
    I think what you are doing with your children is wonderful. As a mother of 4 I flew by the seat of my pants most of the time and now I wish I had had more special times with the kids. You are making memories and that is so awesome.

  12. GoKarts rule! My kids used to (and still do) love them! Good for Maddy! Look out Mom- can driver's ed be far behind??:)

    Love the pics!

    Hope you have a wonderful day!

    PS Ben and Lisa posted VIDEO of Sophia last night- got to see her moving and all-- this Grammy is in 7th heaven:)

  13. The kids ALL came down with a bug yesterday, so I didn't have a chance to visit and am trying to catch up a little this afternoon. Your go-kart adventure looks so fun. I love that you are so open to including other young girls in your adventures with Maddy. What wonderful memories you are making for them too.

    Blessings to you today, dear bloggy friend. And a great rest of the week, too.


Thank you so much for taking the time to share some JOY!
You're a blessing to me!
