Ready, set, go! Autocross season begins!

Autocross!
It's funny: we had some super hot days in April and May, but it's been chilly. The autocross season started and we busted out the layers and toques, but a bit of cold weather couldn't keep us away from the track.

A with all the kids under a blanket.
Autocross in Ottawa takes place in one of the parking lots at the Palladium (tell me I'm not the only one who still uses that name for the Canadian Tire Center). Cars zip around a course marked with pylons while drivers not driving marshal (they put back the cones that get knocked down or run over) and spectators cheer. They aren't many spectators to be honest, but it's fun and safe and free so maybe you want to check it out sometime?

J and Little K.
On this day, we met up with our friends and watched J take the little black car around the track. It was A's first time and he got to ride along for one of J's runs. That minute flies by when you're zooming around, believe me!

We left a little before lunch and gathered at L's place. The kids played and we ate and eventually I packed up the kids and we went home. It was a nice first autocross and there will be more. Lots more.
