May in Indy

May in Indy is bustling with activity.

Diane & Mike with the band

First, we celebrated Cinco de Mayo with friends.  There was great food, a mariachi band and a few drinks along the way...

And of course, RACING!  We attended the first ever Grand Prix of Indianapolis last weekend.

 It was very cool to attend this new racing event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and along with 50,000 other fans we enjoyed a beautiful, sunny day and some great racing!

Entering the first turn

And it's a bit different from an Indy 500 race.  First the course itself is different, combining the oval track and a track cut into the "infield".  Also the cars race in a clockwise direction, and we had a great view of them heading into the first turn.

The tower and the stands

Racing underway

Busy at work...

Mike is spending every spare moment grading papers these days as the Spring quarter draws to a close.

Irises (transplanted from Iowa)

And I'm planting, planting, planting.

Ok, here goes my first of many summer pictures of flowers.  I know it's what you've come to expect of me, and I don't want to disappoint...

Finally it feels like Spring has arrived.  I hope you are enjoying it, wherever you are!
