meeting with the king

well, this is not my typical post, but i absolutely have to share this. for those of you who do not know, larkin has decided that he is going to be a race car driver. now, i know he is only four, but he seems pretty set on the idea. i have mixed feelings about the whole thing. well, those of you who know of his desire to race cars, also know about one of his favorite people in the whole world-byron-our dear friend who works for joe gibbs racing. last weekend, while hanging out at the track with byron and his wife leslie, this is what larkin got to experience...

the jury is still out on which part was most exciting-the fact that he got to meet the king of racing, or that he met the voice behind the king from the movie, cars. either way, he was ecstatic. i cannot put into words what watching him during this was like. just to see the excitement in his eyes was enough to make a mama cry a little. and by the way, richard petty...super nice man.

Oh my gosh...so you know I'm not into racing, but I know Larkin was about to bust inside! It's almost like you would be if you got to meet Patrick Dempsey! :-)
