It has been a few weeks since I wrote about anything and so much has been going on.

I told you that my oldest sister Elyssa and her daughter Lola were in town from North Carolina visiting and while they were here they watched me ride my bike a lot.

I hung out with friends a lot at the race tracks.  I love going to different tracks and hanging out with different friends at each place I go.  This picture was taken in Hollister at the GP track.

I also went with my Mom, my Sisters and Lola to the Zoo.  We had a lot of fun running around and showing Lola all of the animals.  My sisters and I ran around and acted crazy the whole day.

When I was practicing my bike cut out going through a turn and I tipped over.  No big deal, but when I picked up my bike I noticed that my finger was pointing the wrong way.  Yep, broken finger.  The doctor gave me a shot and then set the finger back in place and put it in a cast to heal.

My Grandparents took my Great Grandpa and my Uncle to the Sacramento Fish Hatchery.  It was really cool to watch the salmon jump up the ladder and fight to get to the top to lay their eggs.  It was really crazy to watch.

My parents and I went bowling.  We all had a lot of fun but I think we all agreed that our family are never going to be professional bowlers.

This year for Halloween, it was the last year that my school walks in the parade through my Mom’s work to get candy. (Next year I switch to middle school)  I didn’t know what I wanted to be, I was thinking I would be the guy from breaking bad but that didn’t fit me very well.  I decided to go with something completely crazy and different from what I could ever be in real life……A Nerd.

Halloween night when we went trick-or-treating we took our golf cart to the golf course down the street that my Grandparents live at.  We went with my friend Marks family and all 8 of us piled into the golf cart and ran crazy from house to house getting candy.

My parents and I went to Stockton to the sprint car races with some friends of ours.  We had awesome seats and had fun watching the action.  The 51 Fifty Energy Drink girls were at the races and I got to say Hi.

I spent Thanksgiving with my family at my Aunt and Uncle’s house.  I made sure to tell everyone that I was Thankful for my entire family and for dirt bikes!

I jumped around to a lot of different things, but there is still more to come…….

My Mom’s extended family all had Thanksgiving at our house, we had Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Grandparents.  It was a lot of fun and the food was sooooo good.  After we were done eating everyone watched some football.

When everyone left, we went to bed for three hours and then got up at 2am to drive to LA for a weekend of visiting my Dad’s family and dirt bike riding.  I slept in the truck and when I woke up we were at Milestone Raceway just as they were opening.  The place was really cool, it has 7 different race tracks on the facility.

The tracks in LA are a little different in many ways, the biggest difference is the way they run the practices.  In Northern California we rotate time on the track between big bikes and little bikes (20 minutes mini’s, 40 minutes big bikes each hour), in Southern California big bikes and little bikes ride at the same time throughout the day whenever they want to go on the track.

I worked throughout the day on the big track and it was really fun riding with the big bikes.  The track was really fun it had some big triples, large whoops, and big swooping turns.  The turns were a little different because they didn’t get big ruts in them like at home, I had to make the turns almost like I was on a flat track.

After riding my 65 for a while, I also rode on my 85.

While we were at the track pro’s were also at the track practicing.  We saw Tadesco, Tickle and someone with a red number 1 plate and no name on his jersey…….who do you think it was?  It was so cool to watch them ride and see how they practice and how fast they can blitz the whoops.  I couldn’t believe they were just right there parked right next to us…..except for the number 1 rider, he was a little more private..huh!

When we were done riding we drove about an hour to visit our family.  On the way to Temecula we passed March Field Air Museum and we had to stop and check it out.

They had so much to look at that I will have to tell you more about it later.

Then it was back on the road to visit family

………to me continued!
