This year's Coca Cola 600 weekend was another chance to make some great memories with the boys! The first highlight is our camping spot. Every year I work with our ticket consultant at Charlotte Motor Speedway to get closer and closer to the track, and we have finally found our sweet spot and I think we will be here for years to come. We are literally right next to turn four and close proximity to the bathhouse. There was a little side road which had been blocked off and my oldest enjoyed using it for his "scooter races." Our neighbors were family friendly and were extremely hospitable and helped in times of need (my camper's battery died and they kindly jumped it).

NEWBS SUGGESTION: Always carry a sharpie and a plain hat or even a diecast car that does not have a racer's name on it. Obviously, if I had known we were going to bump into Sam I would have bought one of his cars to get him to sign it, but one of boys wore a plain "sprint" cap just for this purpose.

Overall it was another successful weekend of intentional memory making, and again, isn't that what it's all about?
