One less item on the old bucket list…
Not really for me, per se, but for Rob and Knox? This past Saturday was a dream come true. As a boy momma of two, it can be rather challenging at times to come up with cool new things to do on the weekends…. especially when my job revolves around fashion. Although I am a boy mom, I’m not the mom who sits and plays on the floor with cars. I’ll admit it! I always say that’s what Rob is for, and to be honest he’s way better at it anyway so why rock the boat? But when I found out that we had the opportunity to drive super cars with Xtreme Xperience (think Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, etc.), I knew this would instantly score me major mom (and brownie) points.
Rob and Knox couldn’t wait to get there, but I was a little (okay, extremely) nervous to say the least! I will go ahead and admit that I’ve never really been a dare devil and the thought of wrecking a quarter of a million dollar car wasn’t exactly easing my anxiety.
Everyone at Xtreme Xperience was incredibly friendly, accommodating, and most importantly — informative. After turning in our drivers licences and checking in, we did a brief drivers class where they walk you through the course, go over all of the safety rules, and give you a better idea of what to expect from your in car instructor.
If there’s one thing that stuck out to me (other than driving super awesome cars), it’s when my instructor said, “trust me and I’ll trust you.” It was no secret that I was literally shaking when it was finally go time.
Talk about an adrenaline rush…
Momma got to drive the Ferrari 488 in yellow…it honestly didn’t even feel real at first. Sitting in it was one thing, but I couldn’t believe I was about to floor it in a car that costs more than my house. What if I hit a cone and get fined? What if I get a little too confident and lose control? Just a few of the many questions racing (pun intended) through my brain as my Xtreme instructor gave me the green light. Not to worry…I made it out alive and it was even more fun than I could have imagined!
Rob drove the Lamborghini Huracan in matte blue and you can just tell by the look on his face that he was in his glory. Meanwhile, all the employees at Xtreme Xperience let Knox sit in every single car they had! They gave that kid the royal treatment and it truly made us so happy. Even if I hadn’t driven one of the cars, just seeing that boy’s big blue eyes light up as he sat in the drivers seat(s)….let’s just say it was something that I will never forget.
I HIGHLY recommend Xtreme Xperience whether you’re looking for a fun new date night idea, want to make your kids happy or you just have an itch to drive a badass car that you can’t ever actually buy. It was a first class experience and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend a Saturday.
