The night before we went to the Keele family's house for the party and beer pong tournament. There are sooo many traditions that we do from year to year. A new tradition is the Who's Pregnant? game. Katie was pregnant two years ago. I was preggers last year and now Katie is preggo again this year. It's almost mandatory since we have to have a sober driver.
So as I was saying, the beer pong tournament...
(But I can't make fun. I did not get a single ball in the cup. I was TERRIBLE. I didn't think it was possible to get worse. But I did!)
There were a few mishaps, like a broken glass getting in the way.
Just a word of caution- DO NOT get in the way of the tomahawk jam. There's some major power behind that. REEEECCCCYYYYCCCLLLLEEEEE!!!!
The next morning we headed to the race mega early.
We parked in Big Nate's yard and pre-partied.
We finally got to our seats. It was HOT!! Temperature-wise it wasn't as hot as last year. But maybe last year, I was a little more prepared. It was just sooooo hot.
Travis's dad always has the best accessories for the race...
There were plenty of shirts there that were.... surprising, like the one above.
I was disappointed in the lack of celebrity this year. There were a few that we saw. The Star Spangled Banner was the most momentous that we've seen.
Another obligatory shot of the ladies in attendance!
Andrew drew JR in our drawing. He could have won $100. Instead he won $30. Wah waahhhh.
It was one heck of a race though. Pretty exciting the whole time.
One the way home, Travis fell asleep.
The 2011 Indy 500 was a great success! We left Tommy overnight for the first time and he did great. Grandma sent pictures. This was the first one she sent in the morning.
The second one was this one.
