Saturday morning, we woke up in Houston and decided to have fun.
No packing or stressing out about things that needed to be done…
Just a day of FUN.
I suggested the Astro vs Tigers game.
Glen suggested the Houston Grand Prix.
Um….sounds like a blast. (I said sarcastically) But I saw how excited he was, so I agreed.
I hate loud noises so I was not excited at all.
We arrived to a bustling crowd and loads of excitement.
After getting my Firestone Hawk tattoo, I was ready for the race!
We scored tickets in the club section which meant AC, free drinks and food and a great view.
I’m sure all those things played into the “fun” factor.
I learned in the ins and outs from other hard core Indy fans, then the race started.
Once the race started, I remembered something…
A couple months ago, I read about a Indy car driver who had Type 1 diabetes.
I immediately went on Twitter and started tweeting… And guess what??
He replied, twice. #awesome
After the race, we headed to the pit and then checked out the vendors inside.
I never thought I would enjoy the vendors at a car race… Wrong again.
So many fun booths, friendly people and I walked out with a beautiful new watch.
The moral of the story is… Don’t knock it, until you try it!
