What I did this weekend

I :heart: mud runs!

Not exactly a black-tie affair.

The husband making laundry.

One of the favorite photos I took—a red RZR launching into the pit.

(14 more mud run photos here, including the one of the guy who rode his through sitting backward on his wheeler.)

    How on earth do you see where you’re going?

    When the machine first hits the pit, the tires throw up a curtain of mud and water, like the RZR’s doing, but you don’t really need to see. You’ve already lined up to the pit and it’s just full throttle straight ahead. Once the machine drops, the tires churn and throw mud/water behind and to the sides, like in the hubby’s picture, but you can see.

    Love the picture of the short kid. Seriously cute. And growing!

    Looks like you had a ton of fun. Oh, and btw…you’ve been tagged. :groucho:

    OH! I thought y’all went over a track or course or something. I didn’t realize it was a straight shot. Still. I would want to see. I’m weird like that.
