The Indy 500!

While we were in Indy, we were so lucky to get to go to the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 race! Michael had a connection through work who offered him tickets in a suite in the pagoda, that big structure in the background below. I can't tell you how lucky we felt and how excited we were to get to experience the race this way! (Judy was so sweet to offer to have some 1-on-1 time with Bennett while the rest of us went to the race.)

While we were walking in, they wheeled the huge trophy past so I snapped a quick picture.

We invited my Uncle Mike and cousin Perry to join us, and loved getting to see them and share in the experience with them.

There was a covered patio area to watch, which was awesome to be outside but protected from that intense sun, and get the full experience of those super-loud cars. 

There were drinks and snacks inside...which June kept inquiring about and needing to taste.

We were outside for the start of the race and all of the components leading up to it, like the National Anthem and the singing of "Back Home Again in Indiana."

There was also an inside area where we could sit down, protected from the noise a little and still with an incredible view.

This was definitely a day for the books!
