A race, a “pool” and a Slip n’ Slide, Indy style…

  Had a great 3 nights just North of Race City (Indianapolis, IN)…and just in time for the big event..The Indy 500!! We actually didn’t attend, but we used it as an excuse to do some family wagering and a cookout in the Wolff’s back yard…

Even Aiden and Maddox had some picks in this pool…(Hey, we had to have X amount of peeps to form this betting operation)..Also included were John’s Dad and Step-mom…McGyver won the pool and promptly donated the winnings to the Wolff Cub’s College fund.

Crash Gladys.  “Crash” lives in California and is part of a motorsports radio show out there called  SpeedFreaks.  She did some live interviews at the Indy track on Saturday with Gladys Knight ( as in the Pips,) and Garth Brooks, I KID YOU NOT!!…Check out the link and read about Crash and the SpeedFreaks…Dennis and I have quite a few SpeekFreak items, courtesy of Crash….

NOTE MCGYVER’S “SF” CAP CRASHER GOT FOR HIM…

HEY, DEN!! JUST REMEMBER THAT CRASH COULD BE YOUR DAUGHTER!!

Our visit was really fun…I brought the boys a new slip and slide…Remember those??? They are made for little kids and stupid adults..and NO , I didn’t try it….this time.

Aiden sure did enjoy it though!!

We took our walk with the Wolff family around their neighborhood.  They live in a lovely “subdivision” called Raintree…When Den and I win the lottery, I want to move here…. I guess my evening “ensemble” is OK there..I wore it on their patio every AM and PM and the nightwear police never did show up…

Aiden got tired of riding his bike, so his Dad found a way NOT to have to carry it…Can I just say “I LOVE John Wolff!”….

I sure had some good times with those boys…I hugged, nuzzled, played in the sand, pushed around cars, sang the ABC’s, rock-a-bye’d, baby!!!!

Friday night we had Dennis pork chops on the grill, which I neglected to get a photo of…(Hey, I was busy with my Grandma hat on, not to be disturbed by a photo of food!)

Coffee on the patio every morning…swinging in the evening…..Life is good!  Heck, some of us even did a little “skinny dipping”……sans his swim diaper…
