NASCAR

by on Apr.21, 2010, under General

My friend Ren called me on Friday night because he had gotten free tickets to the NASCAR race on Saturday afternoon at Texas Motor Speedway.  We went out to the race but it got rained out and delayed until Sunday night.  The rain continued on Sunday and the race got delayed again until Monday.  I took the day off of work and Ren and I went out to the race on Monday.  The rain stopped but it was a bit cool.  This was our first race and it was amazingly loud.  Even with earplugs it was loud and you couldn’t really talk to the people you were sitting with.  It was pretty cool to see the cars up close and going so fast.  The restarts were definitely the most exciting part of the race, as that lead to some good passing and close racing.  We were right on the front stretch by the start/finish line and got to see a couple of wrecks, including the big wreck.  I took a ton of pictures and posted the best ones up at facebook.

It was a lot of fun and I look forward to the next race.

Buon Compleanno Papa!

by on Apr.21, 2010, under General

April 16th was my dad’s 61’st birthday.  It reminds me that it’s been almost a year since I saw him last, as we saw him just after his birthday last year.  I wish I could spend every birthday with him, but at least since I’ve found him we can do little things from afar.  This year I sent him an e-card and I’m wanting to make a pen for him as soon as I can get caught up with the requests for pens that I already have.

Happy birthday Dad.  We love you lots.

Vegas!

by on Apr.21, 2010, under Damon, Evie

Evie and I spent four wonderful days in Las Vegas at the end of March/beginning of April and had an absolute blast.  We stayed at the Las Vegas Hilton, played $1 blackjack at the Sahara, had lunch at Top of the World at the Stratosphere, went to CSI: The Experience at MGM, ate an In-n-Out burger, played in a slot tournament at New York New York and a host of other things.  We also went to Paris/Bally’s and gambled, ate and shopped some as usual.  We went to the Mirage and saw Cirque du Soleil: Love – The Beatles which was awesome.  I’ve only seen two Cirque shows and they both were amazing but I think I liked this one better.  It’s a must for any Beatles fan.  I posted pictures on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2056839&id=1476777364&l=92655ab638 and will upload them to my site eventually as well.
