Two moms at a demolition derby — FranklyStein


Derby1A couple of weekends ago a friend and I found ourselves without our husbands on a Saturday night. Both of them were at lacrosse tournaments with one of our four kids. So what did we decide to do with our other three kids on that Saturday night? Hit a demolition derby of course!

Believe it or not, this was not the first time I’d been to a demolition derby. There is a dad at our pool who drives in the derby, so we’ve been a few times in the past. I don’t think I would have ever considered going without my husband, but my much-more-adventurous friend suggested it. I didn’t accept right away, I thought I’d better check with my teenage girls first. I didn’t think they would think it was an ideal way to spend a Saturday night, but I was dead wrong. Turns out, they both were eager to go. I guess even girls like to see cars smashing into each other and catching on fire every now and then.
