Speedway Sparkplugs are the Best!

Last weekend we ventured back to Indianapolis for my big 10 year high school reunion.  I honestly wasn't super pumped about going but it turned out to be an incredibly fun day.  It was fantastic to see all of my high school buddies again and it made me miss them terribly when I left.  I really need to keep in better touch with these people because I remembered just how fabulous they all are.

The weekend started off with a picnic lunch where we could bring our families.  We took some pics before we left my parents' house that afternoon.

Natalie napped through almost the whole picnic so I had a chance to chat and catch up with some friends.  But when she woke up, she got to go in the swing at the park for the first time and she LOVED it.  It was pretty much the cutest thing ever.  She got this huge smile on her face when she was flying through the air.  Priceless.
We spent the rest of the day with Matt's parents and then the two of us headed out to the main event.

It was a little awkward at first seeing everyone and going through the whole...where do you work, how old are your kids, what's new in your life...sort of conversation.  Plus, Matt and I both completely suck at making small talk.  So we started playing a game where he would pick out someone in the class and then try to guess the type of person they were in high school.  You know, jock, band geek, smarty pants?  And you know what?  He guessed it right every time.  Ha!
But as you might expect, once the booze got to flowing, we were all best friends again!  Funny how that works, huh?  But it was so great because it was as if all of the cliques just faded away and we were all friends just dancing and having a great time.  I wish high school would've been like that all the time.

Let's just ignore the fact that you can see my bra in practically every picture, shall we?  

Here's a pic of our whole class.  There were only 88 of us so I think we had a pretty good turn out.  

And no party would be complete without a picture of me doing this.

And scene.
