This past weekend, we kicked everything off with a little family picnic/BBQ at my aunt's house. My cousin was in town for a visit... and its always great to see him!
On Saturday... Jay and I headed out the Bandimere Speedway for the 2011 Mile-High Nationals. For those of you not in Colorado... Bandimere is a drag racing track set in the foothills near Redrocks outside of Denver. It lends to some beautiful scenery! It was a hot, hot, hot, scorching day. But Jay and I slathered on a ton of sunscreen, grabbed our earplugs and hunkered down to watch some fast, not-so-fast, and ridiculously fast cars. We even got to meet up with some friends!

Sunday was definitely more of a lazy day for us. The only thing on the agenda? HARRY POTTER!
|HP is awesome|
To round out the summer weekend (although it really was a work day) Monday night we headed out to Redrocks for Film on the Rocks. They show a different movie (new or old) out at the amphitheater every week. Monday night's movie? The Goonies!!!!!!

All in all... I would say we've packed in a lot of things. And we still have a month of summer to go!!!
