Because I have some of the best sponsors, family and friends, this year I was able to give a lot of kids some early Christmas presents.  It all started a few months ago when DVS shoes sent me the wrong size shoes and told me to give them to someone that could use them.  I then got some things from my other sponsors and my family and friends also donated gifts and money to buy more gifts.  My Mom found a local women’s shelter that has 39 kids living at the facility.  We didn’t have enough for that many kids so my Mom and I went shopping and bought at least two gifts for each child in each age group.  It was really fun to think of gifts for all the different age groups and we ended with a van full of gifts.

Earlier this week my family all loaded into the van to go to the shelter and surprise all the kids with gifts.

I had never been to any kind of shelter or place like this before.  There were so many kids and they were all so excited to see what we had brought.  It was really awesome to be able to give them things and have them be so excited to get each of the gifts.  Everyone got one of my Hardcore Racing Shirts and at least two new gifts.  We also had a lot of donated used items that the facility could keep in the playroom for everyone to share.  I took some pictures but really didn’t want to photograph any of the children and the below pictures I also blurred for privacy.

Guys, these kids were so excited!  I will defiantly be taking them more items throughout the year so if you are looking for a place that could use some help, this is the place.  Contact me if you have money or items you would like to donate to kids from ages 10 months to 16 years old.  Thank you to everyone who gave items and cash for me to help these kids get some awesome toys and clothes just before Christmas….and thank you to my parents for finding the perfect local place to help!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

The last couple of weeks it has been raining a lot, on and off.  I have been having to do a little traveling to find places to ride that are dry and I haven’t always been very successful.

We drove to Zaca for the day to ride and had so much fun we stayed the night so we could ride there again the next day.  After practice we played at the hotel.  I played bocce ball with my Mom.

Then I went swimming.

I thought I was the only one in the pool…… and then…..  SHARK!!!!

When I showed up at the track on Sunday the weather was awesome and I was excited to ride.

Carey Hart was there and I got to race around the track with him.

The next weekend we were not so lucky on picking a dry track.  We went to Hangtown and it was still super muddy from all the rain we had.  I was a mess after riding but it was really fun.
