We're back from Dover

Hi everyone! We were away this weekend for the NASCAR race in Dover, DE (the Monster Mile), and just got home.

Check out the new Monster monument they just put up this year. Very cool! To give you an idea of how big that monument is, that's a full size car he's holding.

It rained on Saturday on our way down to the track and most of the afternoon, so the Nationwide series race was delayed for a bit, but they did finally start the race around 6 p.m.

After the Nationwide race on Saturday night, we got to see Emerson Drive in concert right there at the Dover Casino. They were REALLY good! They're a country band, but with a cool rock sound.

The Cup series race on Sunday was a little boring...not a whole lot of position changes...but we still had fun hanging out with friends and enjoying our time away. Here's a pic of my husband from Sunday night after the race. He's posing next to a Monster trophy that they had in the room.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to sign up for the blog candy in the post below this one.
