Hands down, my boys’ favorite Disney character is Lightning McQueen, from the first time we watched CARS together for a family movie night.
Clothes, accessories, and of course toy cars. If it has to do with Lightning McQueen, we probably own it.
Living in Indianapolis during the month of May also means celebrating the greatest spectacle in racing. Yes, I’m referring to the famous Indy 500. And no joke, from out backyard we can literally hear the the roar of the cars as they zip around the track. I know, it’s pretty awesome.
And while we’re not going to the race this year (maybe in a few years when kids are a bit older), we are headed downtown in our best racing gear to hang out with other race fans.

Just like Lightning McQueen and friends, these two little boys of mine are growing up way too fast. And while we can’t make time stand still, we can enjoy the ride!
