Today I spent the day at a huge motorcycle rally called the Ironhorse Roundup. My sister owns a women's motorcycle apparel business called VaVaVroom, so my mom and I helped her sell her cool stuff in a booth at the event. If you want to check out her online site click here, or you can visit her blog here.
I don't ride a motorcycle (I'm Cautious Kel), but my sister does (she's much more adventurous than I am). She turned her passion into a business. The event was packed with motorcycles and people. There was a moto cross show throughout the day. We were astounded by the tricks these brave fools could do. Here's a pic!
Bands played throughout the day. Vince Neil, the lead singer of Motley Crue, even sang for the crowd. I bailed on my sister's booth so I could rock out to some of my favorite songs. Her booth was close to the stage, so a nice fella let me into the side stage to watch close up. Here's Vince minus the Crue. If you remember the 80's band, Slaughter, they were his bandmates for this gig.
A fun day spent with family (and thousands of strangers).
Here's me with my sister and our mom!


NaPiBoWriWee Update: I am not progressing very far in my picture book writing with my busy weekend. I did start a poetry book and have about 1/3 done, so I did accomplish something. I think it will be pretty tough to achieve the goal of seven books in seven days. But I will still try. It's a good motivator!

Next time you see Vince, tell him Ray says 'wattup?'

Lori Degman said...

Sounds like a fun day! Does your sister ever go to the Blessing of the Bikes at Starved Rock? I don't ride either (I'm cautious too) but it's a lot of fun!

I gave up on NaPiBoWriWee - not enough time!

Word ver: litype - pretty cool.

Love your post. Thanks.

Kelly said...

Kim-It was a fun girls day out!
V- Of course! :)
Lori- I will ask her if she has been there. I wouldn't be surprised if she has! I know about the PB, it's a terribly busy week for me! I figure if I get one done, it will be an accomplishment!
Debra-I'll go to your blog next!
Christina-That sounds like a fun day for the students!!!
Color Online- You're never too old!

Paul Michael Murphy said...

You're a lot cooler than me and I resent the hell out of it. Motorcycles and Vince Neil, does it get any more Americana than that?

Kelly said...

Adrienne-I think the name is so cute and catchy too!
GiddyMom-Thanks for stopping by, I will go to yours too!
Thanks, Sherrie, my sis was a banker for many years and finally loves her job!
Thanks Christy and Keri!
Murph-I'm glad that I may come off as cool, because I really have a quite (wonderful) dorky side!
