derby car races

Max got to try out a new experience this weekend...derby car races! At first, he wasn't too excited about wearing the helmet but then once he has his first "race," he was pretty darn happy! And when prompted, he signed "fast car again."
The event was sponsored by Life Enrichment Options and the Bellingham Elks Club. The cars are specifically designed to fit two individuals...a driver (who has to pass a test first) and a passenger (with disabilities).
Such a fun opportunity...thanks everyone who made it happen! Looking forward to racing again next year! :)

Here's Max checking out his new digs!
And here comes his driver!
At the bottom of the hill, Max looked quite satisfied!

This was fun too...the car (and passengers) got pulled up the hill.

That looks like so much fun!
Glad Max decided that the helmet wasn't too bad after all and got into the experience!!!
What a wonderful opportunity for him!

Oh what an awesome experience for Max. Glad he liked it and the helmet.
