Hot August Nights
The coolest cars come to town for Hot August Nights. They say that more than 800,000 people participate each year -- that's double the population of Reno and Sparks combined! So we went to downtown Sparks to check it out.
Carson loved the cars. On occasion, you could catch glimpses of car owners smiling as Carson ran up in excitement to their cars.
Of course, he had to bring his 'The King' car from the Pixar movie 'Cars'. He even got to see a real race car, like the one in the movie.
While Carson and I explored, Angela watched Tucker sleeping in the shade by an old DeSoto -- it was a really nice car.
Needless to say, it was an exciting evening.
To top off the excitement, an ambulance and fire truck pulled up to the restaurant that we were eating at and treated the person sitting at the next table over from us -- talk about awkward. There weren't many other tables, so we took our food and left.
