Newest Member of the Pit Crew

Aurora and my mom and I went to the Gravity Games at Mt Tabor yesterday, formerly known as the Go-Cart Races.

It's huge now, with hundreds of people descending on the park, filling up the surrounding neighborhood with their cars and hauling picnic gear, beer, kids, dogs, and, of course, go-carts.

I had forgotten that it's mostly a lot of waiting around with a few seconds of excitement thrown in- not the most interesting for a baby.

Last year Aurora was just a year old, content to hang around in her bjorn. This year, as you know, she's walking, interacting with strangers, and quite excited about the world around her.

And she loves trying new things! Here she is standing in some tires, getting dirty and exploring something new.
