The kids had an amazing time, in fact, they probably had even more fun than we did. They handed out hats, noise makers, and necklaces, and of course our kids had more than their fair share as everyone gave them more and more. They really enjoyed cheering for 'our' dogs when it was time to race. They would get up on their chairs and jump up and down, screaming and waving their arms around.
On the way back to our hotel from the track we rode the hotel shuttle. During our ride the driver had to pick up several people from the airport including some flight attendants. As they got on the shuttle, Joe's charming side started to shine brighter than the fireworks. He offered the female attendants his extra party hats and proceeded to chat them up providing charming entertainment for the entire ride. I worry, desperately, for the women to come in his future, they won't stand a chance.
