NASCAR Speed Park in Pigeon Forge, Tn - Family Fun Day Review

We Decided to make Friday "Family Fun Day" and took the kids to 
We'd never been there before but the kids love love love to ride Go-Carts and after doing some research I found that NASCAR Speed Park was the ideal place for families because the admission cost is low and covers everything.  
Admission is Reg. $19.99 + tax (General Admission is required for ALL guests entering the park).  
There is a $2 discount available for ordering your tickets online here.  
There are also incentives for upgrading your pass to a 
30-day for an additional $10 or 4-months for an additional $30.  

There are 8 different go-cart tracks which means there is something available for everyone no matter what the age or driver skill level. 
 Of course safety is a major concern and from everything I saw the staff was always on their toes making sure that visitors were having a good time but keeping safe.
Here is a picture of my youngest buckling in :

My husband and the older kids loved the Smokey Mountain Speedway track which is for licensed drivers (16 and over - and YES they checked your license before you enter the track and you are required to wear a helmet).  
Here is a picture of the cars coming out for the race:

There is also a variety of thrill rides including a tilt-a-whirl, Starship 3000, a scrambler, a mini-roller coaster, a car themed carousel, a rock wall, an arcade, a kids play zone and much more.  My younger kids really enjoyed the mini-roller coaster 

and the whole family enjoyed a round of mini-golf 

My family had a terrific day racing the go-carts!  
And, believe it or not I even managed to win a race LOL.

NASCAR Speed Park even offers birthday parties!  
So I'm thinking that next February my youngest (who is turning 14) will probably be having his friends help him celebrate his special day here.

If you are in East Tennessee and looking for something to do with the family, be sure to check out NASCAR Speed Park. 
 I know you will be as thrilled as we were!

Walmart deal - FREE Schick Silk Effects razors

Anyone who knows me knows how much I HATE Walmart.  But, I needed a staple gun and Walmart was the closest place to get one so.... I stopped by.  Anytime I have to go in Walmart I park just outside the lawn and garden so I can avoid seeing lots of people I know and even better the long lines at check out.  I happened to remember that I had this $4 Schick's woman's razor or refill coupon and decided to see if they had any razors that would make for a good deal.  Even better, they turned out to be FREE as these Silk Effects razors are $3.98 (regular price) which means .02 overage!

Day #21 of the Kindness Challenge

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others. -- Cicero 

Day 21: Start A Gratitude Journal

The Idea: On this final day of the Kindness Challenge, pause to acknowledge the myriad experiences of the past three weeks. What an adventure it's been. Kindness has a tendency to travel both ways, enriching both giver and receiver. So for today's act of kindness, start a gratitude journal. Reflect on three gifts your life holds that you are grateful for, and write them down. Big or small, momentous or mundane, it matters not. The point is to draw your awareness to the treasures your life contains. If you want to step it up, commit to writing three things you are grateful for in your journal every day. Gratitude will always be close kin to kindness. A thankful heart can't help but spill over with compassion and caring!
