” Is she going too fast?”

“No, her friend is going too slow.”

This is what I remember my mom asking the employee last time I experienced Go Carting.  I was probably 10.

When I was making my 40 Before 40 Bucket List, I thought about not adding go carts, but something was telling me I needed to bring back my inner child and do this again.

This July, as we dropped off the step daughter at camp, I found myself forgetting my want for speed.  I took the Mom route and let the boys race while I snapped pictures.  After all, I needed to save cash because of my barely existent summer teacher’s wage.


The boys had a blast and then we went home.

A few days later, I reread the bucket list I had made earlier this year.  Go Carts.

It shouldn’t take a list to remind a person to have fun and just go for it, but it did.  Luckily, we were headed back in a few days to pick up Grace from camp.

I could redeem my boring Mom stint.  Keegan thought it was a great idea!


I had a blast at Cypress Hills Speedway!  For eleven dollars, I was a able to tick off an item on my list, make memories with my stepson, and wear a perma-grin as I did lap after lap with the gas pedal floored.

Thanks to my sister, Terri, for being the picture taker!


What childhood memory do you want to relive?

I'd love to hear from you:)
