A Few New Pics

Here are a few new pics from Cali. We flew into Sacramento and drove through Napa on the way to San Francisco. It was SO beautiful, I highly recommend it. We stopped at Chateau Montelena Winery (pictured below) which is amazing and looks like an old castle. The wine was quite delicious too. Also pictured below is the Golden Gate Bridge as we drove into the city. I love San Fran so far, it is a really cool city. Tomorrow Madame Butterfly at the San Francisco Opera house and more pics to come!

Off To The Races

I went to my first NASCAR race this past weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. It was quite a spectacle. I highly recommend going at least once. We had a great time and saw lots of rednecks. Get 'er done!

Alex honked after taking this pic.

At the entrance to the Speedway.

Getting our scanners. For those who don't know, one can listen to the racers talk to their peeps in the pit. Kinda cool.

View from the box.

Getting ready to start.

Alex and I listening to Tony and watching his car cam.

We met up with Aaron and Carson who had been at the Speedway for about 8 or 9 hours at this point.

We got to go into the infield which was cool. Here is Tony Stewart (or Smoke) whizzing by.

Walking under the track.
