This is my third installment in the monthly project I am participating in with other local photographers. We choose a theme each month and then snap away…the only rules? It has to be our family!
This month, I wanted to highlight my son Connor’s long-standing interest in cars. It all started when the Easter Bunny left the Disney Pixar movie Cars in Connor’s basket on Easter morning. The movie was a huge hit from the start, and since Connor loves knowing everyone’s names, he immediately began memorizing all of the characters.
This obsession has only grown over the months, and every time we see a car that resembles a character from Cars, he gets so excited and will yell hi to whomever it is on the road :)
All of our arts and crafts projects lately have been car-related as well…
Making “tire tracks” with paint…
Last month, we learned that race car driver and Riverton native Justin Allgaier would be holding an event for fans at Brandt Consolidated, which sponsors him. Evan’s uncle has worked at Brandt for many years, and Evan went to high school with Justin’s wife Ashley, so we thought it’d be a great event to attend. And of course, we wanted to take Connor to see a real race car!
Because Justin drives a red car just like Lightning McQueen in Cars, Connor thought he was meeting the REAL Lightning McQueen…and he was SO thrilled!
The line to meet Justin started through his truck, and Connor was talking nonstop about getting to be in “Mack” (Lightning McQueen’s truck of course!)
Lightning McQueen is in Mack! :)
