It is so hard to believe that our little peanut is six months old! She is still our little sunshine as you can tell by the pictures. She just lights up at attention! Her growth is right on track. She's in the 50th percentile for height and 25th for weight. We know she's fine but it's always nice to have a professional agree. :)
She's also extremely photogenic. That, or I just happen to have the camera in her face more often than not since I am obsessed with capturing every moment!
Like most kids, Alexa adores the cat. She grabs huge clumps of fur and happily pulls away. I guess she's not strong enough yet because Smokey will purr like crazy and plunk his head as close to her hands as he can get. She might be a "cat whisperer" for all we know because Smokey doesn't like kids!

If you aren't a NASCAR fan you may want to tune out now because this entire post is about the NASCAR race we attended at Dover International Speedway on Sunday.
As a Father's Day gift from me and the kids we bought Howard tickets to the race at Dover. Kendal bought tickets for her and Peter as a gift as well. Howard and Peter have wanted us girls to go with them ever since they first attended a race at Dover, so Kendal and I went along for the experience.

This was incredible! The little black specks above the American flag were four Air Force jets that flew overhead. We saw them well before we heard them. I kept thinking "they're not as loud as everyone said to expect them to be". Right after they went directly over us the sound hit and it was incredible! There is no way to describe the sound decibel those four planes hit! I stopped taking pictures after this one because I wanted to be able to enjoy the moment.
A pit stop in action
Jimmie Johnson's pit stall was right in front of us!
And Jimmie won the race!
We were sunburned and tired at the end of the day but it was a good time. I have a new apprectiation for what we watch on tv. The best part was getting to spend a day with Howard and two of our closest friends.
