This past weekend Ryan and I made a short trip to Utah to visit his family, celebrate his dad's birthday, and meet two new little additions to the Kemp family (baby Nathan, and Avery). Before I get to my first demolition derby experience I must say the drive to Utah was more pleasant this time. The last picture provides a small glimpse of the green rolling hills and blue sky. Yes I did say green and as many know that this drive to Utah is usually brown and nothing but brown. All of the rain has made the drive quite scenic and not so boring. Enough about that let's get to the important part. The West Jordan Demolition Derby brought out the "white trash" in me! By the end of the event I wanted a car to catch on fire and I found myself yelling "flip that car"! What added to the charm was the nice vests we had to wear so we didn't have to pay to get into the event. Ya we all were volunteer ushers. I must say when people had to ask me where their seats were located I looked just as confused as they did. All in all it was a surprisingly fun event. We had a great time with the family and enjoyed our weekend in Utah.
Here is one of the cars that flipped that evening! I must say we were cheering pretty loud when it happened.
More collisions.....and smoke from the crappy engines
