This year, our three oldest boys: Ben, Seth and Luke all entered the world of Motocross racing. They race in Harescrambles throughout the spring, summer and fall. We are loving it as a family sport. Our backyard has become somewhat of a dirtbike track, though. Max has a couple friends back home who ride for fun, so he borrowed their gear and brought it along. The boys have been practicing in the back yard....and we are hoping to race this Sunday.
Max taking his first couple of runs. (usually they wear more gear: like boots, pants, etc...but it was a really hot day!)
They come off the driveway and up an embankment....crazy!!!

We also went bowling yesterday. There is this little bowling alley about 20 minutes from our house. It is really old, but my kids like it better than the big "Bowling Palace" which is huge...with all the lights, electronic scoreboards, sound effects etc... This bowling place is called Frazer Lanes and it has only 25 or so lanes, but it is never crowded, they have summer specials and we pretty much get the place to ourselves. Max was the big winner yesterday with a 121! Way to go. We had a blast.
