Supercross Goes Pink

by This is Carrie on February 13, 2011

As long as we live in Orange County, I think it is safe to say that attending the “Supercross Goes Pink” race at Angels Stadium will be a family tradition.

After seeing the enthusiasm of the spectators at last year’s race in support of the Susan G Komen Foundation and breast cancer awareness, we decided we needed to get all decked out for this year’s race.  This included pink motocross jerseys for the girls and a can of pink hairspray.

Not including the actual race, the best part of the day had to be getting the kid’s pictures taken hanging from an upside down motorcycle at the DC Shoes Booth in the pits.  It was so awesome, even Todd had to take a turn.

Check out all the cool, autographed and pink! Supercross paraphanalia up for auction with 100% of the final sale price supporting Susan G Komen Race for the Cure

How did the earplugs work on the baby? I want to take my baby boy to the rodeo in Houston, but my husband and I keep arguing about how loud it is.

I used the moldable wax earplugs that I use for swimming. If I had to do it over, I would’ve added a small piece of first aid tape over each ear to hep hold it in. One side dislodged a couple times during the night. I know the earplugs cut out a lot of sound and then the added thick hat and being in the baby carrier for the majority of time took out even more. He slept almost the entire time. I don’t think it bothered him.
