Vacation

Sorry for no words or posts from me lately! We've been on vacation. We left last Wednesday and headed to St. Louis where we had dinner with friends from college. On Thursday we took in the arch, and did a tour of Budweiser.


Both are very neat. The Arch for it's obvious history, but Budweiser too for it's history and the current process. Not just because of the beer sample(s) at the end!

We headed to Indiana Thursday afternoon, with our ultimate destination being the Brickyard 400 NASCAR race on Sunday. Friday we spent looking at the many covered bridges of Parke County, partly in the rain! It rarely rains here in Nebraska, so it was neat to see it there.


Saturday we took in the museum at Indy and qualifying. Sunday we were a few of the many thousand who watched Tony Stewart win his 2nd Brickyard. If you're not a NASCAR fan, I'm sorry this will all mean nothing to you! I was raised around cars though, and my Dad got my boys into NASCAR when they were little. They had an absolute BLAST! and have already asked to go back.

Give me a few days to get back on track and I'll hope to be stamping by the weekend!

Sounds like your boys really enjoyed themselves! What an awesome opportunity for them!

Now, what did you say about it never raining in Nebraska????? These past few days have given us plenty ROFLOL!
