Charlotte Camping Trip

We are back home from our week long camping trip. We got to Charlotte on Monday. We didn't do much on Monday. Tuesday, it was so hot outside, we spent most of the day at Concord Mills Mall since it was indoors and air conditioned!! The babies did great!! They stayed on their same schedule as they are on at home. When we would go up to the bath house to take a shower, we would take them up with us and use the family restroom and give them a bath. It was so hot the first part of the week. Luckily we had light summer dresses for the girls and Ashton just wore a onesie.  At breakfast tine, we would put the babies in their bumbos and sit them at the table.

Wednesday we went up to Camping World in Statesville and then stopped by Red Bull Racing Team shop. We stopped by Wal-Mart on our way back to the camper & bought a little pool for the babies. They loved playing in the pool! We did get a storm that night, really windy and rainy!

Thursday we spent pretty much all day going to different race shops around the area. We went to Ganassi/Earnhardt, Gibbs, Penske, Kyle Busch Motorsports, JR Motorsports, Kasey Kahne Racing, Martin Truex Racing, Red Bull Racing. We didn't get the babies out at every shop because some of them were small. Kevin and I would take turns going into the shops to look around or if Allie didn't want to go into one, she would stay in the truck with them. When we went to the Ganassi/Earnhardt shop, JPM and McMurray were signing autographs, when they got done, we asked if we could get a picture of them with the babies.

Friday was the Red Bull Fan Day at their shop. They had the Shutter Speed cars that Vickers and Kahne raced at the Coca Cola 600 race out so everyone could see up close the pictures on the cars. I downloaded a bunch of pictures of the babies on the car! Miss Sprint Cup Monica was at the shop, so we got a picture of her with the babies. We even did a little interview with her inside the shop!

We did have a lot of attention at the shop, but they get attention pretty much every where we go. We had some people from Red Bull take the babies pictures in their little Red Bull outfits. When I went up to get the autographs from the drivers, I asked Brian Vickers if he would hold Ashton for the picture. Of course he said yes, and joked around a little about last time he held a baby, it dropped. Kevin said it's OK, they bounce. They just laughed at it, knowing everyone was joking around!

One of the people who was taking event photos asked Kasey Kahne to get in the picture also. There was probably like 6 different camera taking pictures, we had no idea what camera to look at!

I absolutely love this picture!!

After the fan day was over, we had a little get together back at the campsite. Even though it rained, it didn't stop everyone from having a good time. We played some corn hole and hung out. I met some new friends and got to see old friends!

Saturday, we went out to breakfast with Kevin's family that live near Charlotte! After breakfast, we hung around at the trailer, then walked up to all of the merchandise trailers. It was so hot out there, we didn't stay too long. We went back to the trailer and let the babies swim in the pool again. I think Kevin got so hot, he got in with them.

Sunday, we went back up to the merchandise trailers that we didn't get to see on Saturday. We weren't out their too long since it was race day!! We were so thankful that Amy and her kids weren't going to the race and offered to watch the babies for us so Kevin and I could go! We did have fun!!

Monday we headed home! We stopped for breakfast & lunch. The babies did a lot better coming home than they did going there! Overall, they did AWESOME on the trip!!! They are pro's at camping now!
