The US Grand Prix

We headed out early for the holidays to attend the inaugural F1 race in Austin. We flew to Dallas on Wednesday, was at the karting track on Thursday afternoon and Matt and I were in Austin on Thursday evening. Oliver & Chloe stayed with my parents in Dallas. It was good to get away--just adults--something Matt and I have never done since having kids (unless you count going to Ethiopia to bring Oliver home, but I don't think that counts).

We had a great three days at the F1 event despite some inaugural race glitches and got to see a great win.

A photo from our seats at Turn 12--which was probably one of the best spots to view the action.
 
 
Collective Soul on stage Saturday afternoon after qualifying. Talk about feeling old---some German guys in their early 20s asked, "Who is Collective Soul?".

Before the race the drivers were taken around the track in classic American cars. This is Michael Schumacher.
