Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Drag Racers

Don’t Let All Your Babies Grow Up To Be Drag Racers, originally uploaded by elefanterosado.

Even though he could name all of the cars after the first tour, he insisted on going a second time. And a third, fourth and fifth. Finally we told him a few little white lies.

Such as: “Today they’re only open for special VIP visitors.”

And then we’d drive by.

“Mummy! Daddy! Why are there so many VIP visitors there today?”

Next it was: get him interested in something on the other side of the road.

“Look at that bulldozer.”

“I think I saw a grapple skidder. Or a log feller.”

But never, ever try to outwit a 30 pound 4 year old, ’cause he’ll win every time.

“The doors are open! You said they were closed. But they’re open! I wanna go to the car museum.”

Again. And again.

Route 66 Auto Museum. Santa Rosa, New Mexico.

Get your kicks on old Rte 66.
