Busy in May

System - Sunday, May 17, 2015

I don't know about the rest of you but I am feeling like it is actually SPRING!!!! The weather this weekend was not too shabby. I know the old saying is April's showers bring May flowers and that is exactly what it is doing. I have these beautiful plants in the front of my house that began to bud over the weekend and when I left for work this morning one of them had bloomed. It was so pretty. I wish I wasn't running late so I could have stopped and actually taken in all of its beauty.

Spring has always been my favorite season. I love the weather and all of its craziness. I love watching the trees turn green. I love seeing all the different colors begin to POP. I love everything about Spring.

The month of May is usually a busy month for me however this one was a CRAZY one. My daughter, who is Miss I Can Do Anything has done exactly that EVERYTHING. For the past several weeks she has been doing Pups running (track and field), Girls on the Run (training for a Marathon) and Soccer. She had something to do every single day of the week. Which means Mommy had something to do everyday of the week. Since May is winding down so are her activities (thank you Lord). My daughter is very active. She likes to be moving around. The busiest day this month was by far May 9th. Ali ran her 5K marathon in 40 minutes. As soon as she crossed the finish line and received her metal we rushed off across town so that Ali could participate in her pups run meet which she ran a 100 meter and 400 meter. She placed 1st in her heat for the 100 and 7th in her heat for the 400 Meter. As soon as she was finished with her pups run meet we had to rush off to her soccer game, where she scored the first goal. You'd think she would be tired but she was up playing around at her brother's baseball game that immediately followed her soccer game. We left our house at 7:30 in the morning and didn't return home until 6:15. I was so tired. Ali and I both ended up taking a nap.

 

My son plays baseball. He likes to pitch (which I think everyone does) and he likes catcher. He isn't a fan of the outfield (which I don't think anyone is). He is getting better at batting. He is a great catcher. He doesn't let the ball get behind him too much. I don't think it is because they are allowed to steal but because it is so far back to the fence that he just gets worn out to easily. He can throw from home to 2nd base. He just moved up a field so I think the adjust is working well for him.

 

As if that wasn't enough Ali (and my nephew JJ) are graduating 5th grade. This is super sad for me. My baby girl is going to MIDDLE SCHOOL. :( They give out awards for kids who made it on Honor Roll or High Honor Roll every semester, they have a picture movie of the kids from their time at the school, and the kids get called up one by one to shake hands with the principle and their teacher. It is going to make me cry!!!

And.......after all of that Ali turns 11 on the 30th of May. She is getting so big and she is such a smart girl and very mature for her age. My sister in law asked her what she wanted for her birthday and she said she didn't care. She said "I will be happy with whatever you get me. I'm not picky". She is super excited because this year she gets to spend her birthday in California. We are taking the kids to go see my husband's family that lives out there. It will be a lot of fun.
Also with May you get the INDIANAPOLIS 500. The most POPULAR race in Indy Car. I had the privilege of going to the track last Friday and I got to listen to Mario Andretti speak. For any of you that aren't a fan of racing Mario Andretti is one of the MOST FAMOUS names in Indy Car. Born 2-28-1940 Mario and his twin brother Alto got into racing together. Mario ran his first race in the 1968 United States Grand Prix. He didn't win a race until 1971 when he took first at the South African Grand Prix. In 1965 Mario Andretti won the Indy 500 Rookie of the Year award. In 1967 he won Daytona 500 and two years later won the Indianapolis 500. In 1979 he won the Forumla One Championship. He is one of two drivers to ever win a Formula One, Indy Car, World Sports Car and Nascar. Mario's son Michael joined the racing family in 1989 and the two became the 1st ever father/son racing team. Mario raced in 131 races, won 12 of them and had the pole 18 times. In 2000, the Associated Press and RACER magazine named him Driver of the Century. He was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2001.
 
Here is a few great BBQ ideas.
*Bacon wrapped grilled asparagus. Take 3 pieces of asparagus and wrap them in one piece of bacon. Season with Season Salt, Pepper, and Olive Oil. Place on grill and cook until bacon is crispy.
 
*Baked Beans~ Buy your favorite baked beans in a can. Put into a casserole dish. Weave your bacon on the top of the dish. Bake in oven until bacon is crispy.
 
*Cooler corn~ bring water to a boil. Once it has boiled for a few minutes place water in a cooler with shuck born and butter. Let sit outside for 30 minutes. Best Corn Ever.
 
How did your Spring cleaning go? Have you even started yet? Do you have any tricks you would like to share?
Until Next Time..........

 

A little History

System - Monday, May 5, 2014

When you think of May in Indiana there is normally a few things that pop in your mind but I bet the biggest thing most people are thinking of is the INDIANAPOLIS 500. It’s only The Greatest Spectacle in Racing. It is considered one of the three most prestigious motorsports events in the world. The Indianapolis 500 is met by people all over the United States. Famous actors and actresses, singers, professional athletes and everyday people come to Indiana just to watch the race. Whether it is rain or shine you are sure to have a blast. The Indianapolis 500 falls over Memorial Day weekend every year but the events last all month long. One of the BIGGEST traditions with the Indy 500 is Carb Day. It is held the Friday before the race and is the final practice session before the race on Sunday. There is a lot going on that day as well as the final practice laps the speedway holds a concert each year. It also has been turned into one of the biggest drinking days of the year. Lots of people spend the whole weekend (Friday to Sunday) at the track camping, grilling out and parting with their friends.

 

A little History of the Indy 500

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway was built in 1909 as a gravel and tar track. This was host to many small events like motorcycle racing. During the first two events there were two fatal accidents because of the breakup of asphalt. This gathering brought 15,000 people to the track.

 

Carl G Fisher who was the principal owner decided to spend $155,000 on repaving the track with 3.2 Million bricks and added a concrete wall 2ft 9 inches high. The newly remolded track drew in 60,000 spectators in on Memorial Day weekend 1910. Throughout the rest of the year the track’s crowds grew progressively smaller. Carl decided to do a 24 hour contest with the winner would be awarded $25,000.


The first 500 was held on Memorial Day, May 30, 1911 and it had 40 starters. This race was host to the first car ever to have a rear view mirror. This race drew in crowds of 80,000 people. Carl was so happy that he decided to establish an annual tradition. In 1912 the winnings was raised to $50,000 and the field was limited to only 33 drivers. 1912 was the first time an American driver won with an American car. This gave the European car makers incentive to build better, faster and stronger cars.

 

The Indianapolis 500 attracts more than 300,000 people.   

 

 Cool Information

In 1927 the Purdue All-American Marching Band began performing on the track near the finish line and has been the host band ever since.

 

1946 American Operatic tenor and car enthusiast James Melton started the tradition of singing “Back Home Again in Indiana” with the Purdue Band. It was then taken over by Jim Nabors in 1972. Sadly Mr. Nabors will be retiring from singing the song at this year’s Indianapolis 500.

 

Female Participation of any sort were banned from the Indianapolis 500. Even women reports were not allowed in the “Pit” until 1971.

 

The first woman to ever qualify for the Indianapolis 500 was Janet Guthrie in 1977.

 

Sarah Fisher has competed 8 times.

Danica Patrick led the race in 2005 for 19 laps which is the first time a woman has ever led in laps and her 3rd place finish in 2009 is the best finish for a woman ever.

 

Milk was introduced in the 1933 Indy 500 when Louis Meyers requested a glass of buttermilk after his win. A local dairy company saw that the winner was drinking milk and decided to offer a bottle of milk to the winner for all future races. Milk has been presented at all of the races.

 

At the 1993 Indy 500 the winner Emerson Fittipaldi who owns and operates and orange grove drank orange juice instead of milk and was booed by the fans.

 

 

Don’t forget to wish your Mother(s) a Happy Mother’s Day

 

Until next time………….
