It was a Memorial Day weekend to remember, so naturally a blog post about it is a necessity.
This weekend we packed up, left town, and headed to Springfield, MO for NSRA (National Street Rod Association) Mid-America Street Rod Nationals. To put it simply, it was a weekend long car show with about 1700 classic and antique cars from all over the country. Which is pretty awesome if you ask me.
Today I’ll share the highlights and way to many pictures from our weekend away.
We left about 1:00 on Friday afternoon. Some how we miraculously packed all of our stuff and our family in the 37.
It was a bit of a tight squeeze but it all fit! I would like to add that half of that is tools Russ packed, better to have them and not need them than the opposite.
The rest of the day was spent checking into our hotel, getting checked into the event, elevator rides, hanging out with friends, dinner, out and watching the cars cruise the main road.
We arrived at the fairgrounds about 9:00 the next morning and set up camp for the day. There is so much to do there, from looking at 1700 cars to several vendors, watching auto-cross, and just hanging out..
Our girls are awesome… and so is Russ for that matter. Sure our car isn’t all fancy shmancy, but it is ours and pretty awesome. It is so cool to be attending these events as a family at our age. I only saw a handful of families like us. The car world seems to be an older generations thing so to be doing this now is just so much fun. The girls had a blast too. I love that they don’t mind going to these events and seem to take a genuine interest.
Emily kept asking to have her photo taken by favorites of hers and Marissa had her few minutes of fame on the loud-speaker while helping draw raffle numbers.
Saturday evening was dinner, watching the cars cruise some more, a pint of Peach Mango / Pineapple whip and posing with a dinosaur…. don’t ask. It looked like someone lost a bet if you ask me. When a friendly inflatable dino walks by you ask for a picture without a second guess.

On Sunday we stopped back by for one last walk around before heading home just before lunch time.
So thankful for this weekend with my favorites!
