Virginia Beach Photos...Pennsylvania 500 Photos & something more!

OK...so I know it has been a long time since I got a chance to post anything, but I am sure going to make up for it today! I finally got around to downloading our photos from our beach vacation at Grandma C & Grandpa (aka PaPa) house with Aunt Lisa and little Scotty. We had such a great time!

Also I have photos from this past Friday of our day out at the race track, at Pocono for the Nascar Nextel qualifying for the Pennsylvania 500. What was extra special about this time at the race track was that we decided to go ahead and purchase pit passes! Francesca had a blast (just wait until to you see the photos) and she got to meet some of the drivers, but not her favorite, Tony Stewart...even though she was screaming his name when ever she saw his car or his crew..."TOE-NEEY"! (yep, my little girl sounds like she should be on The Sopranos...a true Italian!)

And finally, I have a video that was taken about a week before we left for the beach. It is of Francesca doing front-ward-rolls! Now, I have never shown her how to do these...she just one day was doing them up at my mom's and I just happen to have my camera ready to catch all the action. She is truly amazing!

Where is he? I keep yelling his name, but I don't see him!

Since I can't see Toe-neey...I might as well have some fun in the grass!

After the race, we stopped for some pizza. It was nothing big, but look at my daughter just laughing...and having a great time!

I thought my Mom was Tony's #1 fan (she has an entire 1/2 of a room dedicated to TS memorabilia), but I think she may have some competition with Francesca!

Ok...(laughing), I re-did the box that you sent me, so I could use it to send your gift & while I was peeling off the labels, I noticed that you used a copy of your passport page to write my address ((big smiles)..SO, if it WAS a secret, it certainly wouldn't be anymore! ha-ha...I am going to look on the yahoo group page & see if I can find your email address...
