Mr R. with our children.
We all got up early the next morning and headed out to the Queensland Raceway Racing track where Mr R. thought he would channel some of Brocky's flair in the Wynn Commodore.
He got all suited up, put on his helmet and then gave us a very excited wave and was off out on to the track.
I told you he was a hoon at heart and after a few warm up laps he hit his stride. The only disappointment was the Ford went off the track before he could pass it......hhmmmm! Boys!
Roaring down the straight....
To a very enthusiastic cheer squad. As DD remarked I bet you don't hear "GO GRAMPY!" very often at the race track.
Sometimes it was just a little bit loud and special equipment was called for.
And then it was back into pit lane and it was all over.
But I have to say the smile remains....
The thing I loved most about this weekend was the fact that my Husband got to express to all of us just how special it was that we would do this for him and how being with his family meant so much.
If you have managed to stay with me through this marathon I say a big thanks. It is such a gift to reach 60 and I wanted to celebrate and document it for my on line journal.
I hope you enjoy your day. I have managed to catch a very nasty cold so my favourite chair and I will be good mates today.
Blessings Michelle xxx
