2012/267: Italian Car Fest (1)

Last year, the Italian Car Fest in Grapevine, Texas was so much fun, that I decided to drag everyone there again this year, when it was held on September 8th 😉
Thankfully the weather was a bit cooler than last year, and unlike last year, I wasn’t the only one of the family who brought the camera. Both girls brought theirs!
I waited until a couple of days before, to tell the girls that we were going, thinking that after watching several seasons of Top Gear on Netflix (and LIKING it!!), they’d appreciate it more than they did last year. Sara wasn’t too thrilled about going, but remembered the gelato (that they were supposed to have, but didn’t have last year) and asked “can we get gelato??” Um, we’ll see! (No gelato this year either!)
When I asked Melissa if she was excited about going, she answered with a very non-excited “sure…probably gonna bring my camera, too”.
It was actually a nice day, without any whining from the kids!!

Don’t expect to see too many “whole car” shots…with all these rude people there, who couldn’t be bothered to wait three seconds for me to get my shot, I had to get a little creative 😉

Today’s installment: Ferraris!

  1. I’d love to be able to, just once, get behind the wheel of one of these in some wide open space and put the pedal to the metal!

  2. a whole year has passed already? So glad that everyone got into it this year 🙂 Does Mel use her camera alot?

    • Yup, been a whole year already.
      Mel is taking photography at school this year and doesn’t have a choice. One of their assignments is Project 365 and she has to use her camera every day and post a picture (on week-ends, too, but not on school holidays).
      I can send you the link if you’re interested.
