May in Indy Part 2: Exhaustion

I keep reminding myself that we chose this crazy busy May schedule.  And maybe we overdid it this year.

If you live in Indianapolis, May is racing season with the Indianapolis Grand Prix, and the Indianapolis 500 Race.

Gasoline Alley on Pole Day

Releasing balloons at start of Indy 500

And we thoroughly enjoyed the racing and a few other events that filled out the calendar...

Chuck and Melanie's annual Derby Party

Tedeschi Trucks Band concert

Dayton Ham Radio Festival (Mike, not me)
Mike assures me he did NOT have an antenna on his hat!

 Kevin and Kathy joined us for Pole Day weekend

And then there was...

Brian and Stacy's annual summer Block Party

Trip to Evansville to see mom on Mother's Day weekend

Retirement party for a professor at Rose-Hulman

And if that wasn't enough busy, we painted a guest bedroom.  

And then I got this crazy idea to get new deck furniture.  
New outdoor space!

Make no mistake...we lived life fully in the month of May!  We loved spending time with our peeps at races, parties and concerts. If only we could spread the fun out over 3 months...

And as you would expect, we had some crazy moments during the month...

Modeling the "Squirrel Baffler" (eventually went on our bird feeder)
Modeling "microwave antenna protective dome" at the Dayton Ham Fest. What can I say?

So here it is. The final day of May.  It's raining outside which is a great excuse for being lazy.  So I'm in my study, curled up on the recliner, listening to music and writing this blog.  And maybe there is a book calling my name.  Or is that a nap?
