We were out of town for about 10 days starting the 28th of May and just returned home a week ago. I've spent the entire week doing laundry, organizing, cleaning and getting back into the routine. However, today we took Eriks to urgent care and found out the poor kid has strep throat. I am hoping our friend's daughter, Briana does not get it since we had a play date with her yesterday. I'm also hoping Emi nor anyone else gets it. Only time will tell.
So for my birthday this year, we headed back to the Indy 500 with extended family and friends. There were 16 of us there total. It was Lane and my 2nd time at the race and Eriks got to go for the very 1st time this year. Emi stayed at home with my parents. We had a great time but it was super hot. They said it was the hottest Indy 500 race on record with a high of 96 degrees. My sister-in-law and I actually spent the first 90 minutes or so of the race out of the sun. I was starting to feel sick I was getting so hot so she and I took off for shaded and slightly cooler pastures until the section we were sitting in was finally covered with shade. Even with the heat we had a good time. After we got back to my parents house we had dinner and celebrated with cake. One of my aunts and uncles as well as a cousin came over while we were at the race. My cousin who was there is named Emily. Our daughter, Emilija fell in love with her and couldn't get enough. It was really cute to see the two of them together. Emi spent the day in the pool with my family while we were gone and as soon as we got back, Eriks suited up and headed back to the water with Emi and Lane.
So without further ado, I will post some photos from the race and my birthday.
