My brother came up and took Natter and Rosebud karting. They now believe that he is the coolest uncle ever, at least for this week.
Rosebud had the track to herself:
Uncle and nephew got to take on each other.
Uncle, however, has been karting for 3+ decades, and is somewhat more of an ace at the sport.
They went to a track in Mulkilteo; it apparently has a kids’ track and a grown-up track. This is now a go-to for extra-special treats as far as my kids are concerned. Natter enjoyed his birthday treat for sure.
I’m thinking its a good thing I didn’t go; I’m sure I’d have had another of those ‘mommy moments’ where you just want to buckle them back up in their infant carseats and encase them in bubble wrap.
