Flashback Friday

I was recently going through my digital photos from “back in the day” and ran into some gems that I’ll try to share from time to time. So, let’s start with Marc and Genell’s wedding.

2014 Chicagoland Speedway NASCAR weekend

In September Dan, Sean, and I went to Chicagoland speedway for a very fun weekend of camping, racing, and making friends. We lucked out and won a Sprint VIP experience which allowed us into the pits and saw both cars and drivers up close. It was a really good time!

A celebration at Target Field

Our team recently finished a huge project at work and we celebrated with each other at a Twins game recently. It was really great to get everyone outside of the office for a nice time. I really enjoyed seeing everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

Habitat Build – 2011

We assembled a crew again this year for a Habitat for Humanity build in Shakopee. This year we worked on insulation and the vapor barrier which made us all a little itchy at times ๐Ÿ™‚ We had a great time together, lots of laughs, and most importantly we finished our job with time to spare. It was great to be working in the same neighborhood as last year because we were able to see the finished product and see the family that now lives there.

NASCAR at Chicagoland Speedway

Last weekend I attended my firstย NASCARย race in Joliet, IL. Sean joined me and we took the camper down and camped at the track. It was great to meet others at the campsite and the races. Everyone was very kind, we were given tickets for the Friday night race, we were invited to the Miller Lite deck for a great track view and drinks, and given a pit tour. Sean was even in a Speed Network spelling contest on stage ๐Ÿ™‚

The Sprint Cup race was pretty intense, cars were running out of fuel on the last lap and a bunch of cars fell out of the top 10. The roar of the cars is pretty awesome, much louder than I ever thought!

We had a great time and hope to make another trip next year with more friends.

Team building and baseball

A few of our IT teams attended the Braves game yesterday. It was great to get out of the office with everyone!

I must say, not having a parking lot for tailgating at the Twin’s games is a bummer!

Walk for Life

On Thursday there was a Walk for Life event held at the MSP airport. Our IT team raised over $8,000 for the American Cancer Society! Great job team!! We had a nice time with friends and enjoyed walking around the airport casually instead of being in a rush. Fun fact: Did you know that walking the loop at the airport is 1.4 miles!?
