On Saturday morning Russ took Marissa to her first drag race. He was beaming with pride at the chance to expose her to something that he loves so much.
His Facebook status read: “Drag racing 101: with a 6 year old”
After a few hours of hot sun, no shade and ear busting motors they headed home. Emily and I had been stuck at home all day and were ready to go but we managed to give them a short break to cool off and relax before we headed out to the Hot Bike Tour.
Once again there he was walking around in the hot sun, sweating and carrying his girls around.
I really should carry around super dad stickers or something to pass out in moments like these.
As a car show, drag racing, “mechanicy” ‘Merica kind of guy having two girls has to be challenging. I love that Russ not only is okay with playing with Barbies and having tea parties but he also finds ways to do things he loves with his girls.
After all being a girl doesn’t mean you are girly all of the time.
And there is absolutely nothing wrong with being a girl who knows her way around a car… or a bike.
Here is to raising the next generation of “car girls”.
