My boy. He has a dream.

July 19, 2011

At one point, we were all amatures, right? Pictured above is my little boy, born July 16, 2000. At the time, I was a MWAC… or shall I say a “Mom with a point and shoot”? I was obsessed with taking his picture, but didn’t become serious from a photography stand-point until 3 years after he was born. He just turned 11 years old this past weekend. Time sure flies!

He was destined to be a fan of motor sports between my and my husbands family. He started riding dirt bikes when he was 3 years old, around the same time I picked up my dSLR. We have grown a lot together and now he is an amature motocross racer. He races local races just about every weekend and is racing 2 big national races this year; Mammoth MX and Ponca City. He also has a chance to win a trip to race in Utah and pit with the King of Supercross, Jeremy McGrath! Jeremy was his original inspiration and he wants to win this contest BAD. I told him that I would help him out if he could prove to me how much he wanted to win. I sat down with him and “interviewed” him and we created a photo essay on why he wants to win this contest. Please read below… and if you are on Facebook and has a spare minute, cast him a vote!

MIKEY SANDOVAL:

“Motoplayground is holding a contest to win a trip to race in Utah and pit with Jeremy McGrath and I want to win! Jeremy McGrath was my very first favorite rider. He is the king of supercross! When I was 2, I used to wear these pajamas all the time.”

“I think Jeremy’s room may have looked a lot like mine when he was a kid. I hope to follow in his footsteps!”

“And now I have a chance to meet him! Not only that, but to win a race in Utah and maybe a few pictures in motoplayground magazine! That would be sick! So, here is what you need to do to vote for me:
First, you need to “like” the moto playground fan page, then go to my photo here and click “like”. Clicking “like” gets me one more vote to victory! Your vote means a lot.”

CLICK ON THIS TEXT AND “LIKE” THE MOTOPLAYGROUND FAN PAGE (you have to do this in order to “like” Mikey’s picture)
Then:

CLICK ON THIS TEXT AND “LIKE” MY PICTURE (“liking” my picture = a vote!)

Thank you, and check out my favorite pictures of me riding. My Mom took them! Mikey Sandoval”

Thank you all for reading and voting. I will let you know the results! Carrie

holiday card 2009

I am taking a break from packing for our New Years camping adventure… to put up one last blog post this year. I thought I would share our holiday card and wish you all a healthy and happy ‘010!

And, I can’t say good-bye without holding a toast to all my babies born in ’09. See my tribute to them here (posted as a PAGE link above the header ): Babies Born 2009. Until next year…

Quite belated, I KNOW! I was waiting until my sister mailed out all of her announcements. So, even though they are now 3 months old and more than DOUBLE their birth weight, I’m sharing their birth announcement. It is a 5×5 trifold. Here is the cover and a micro-sized version of the inside when un-folded. © carrie sandoval | baby

I can’t believe my niece and nephew are already over two weeks old! And I was really hoping to have an “introduction” post by now, but I am so sad to report that our little Ian is still in the nicu. He was all set to come home last Sunday, but then a hole was discovered in his intestine (necrotizing enterocolitis). He is doing great and we are hoping he can come home in the next two weeks. In the meantime, I am having a blast with my little Libby girl. I hope I don’t wear her out by the time her brother joins her in the modeling! © carrie sandoval | baby
