Birthday Fun

Despite the fact that Mother Nature was doing her best to ruin my birthday by opening up the skies and covering us with a thick white blanket of snow, I had a great time celebrating my actual birthday.  Janet, Bob, their son Brian, Nadeen, Larry and I all went to the indoor race track for some racing fun.  We went to the Unser Indoor Racing and Go- Kart Track in Denver.  Nadeen and Janet were the official photographers for the event, while Bob, Brian Larry and I hit the track.  We were racing around at 45 miles an hour in our go-karts.  It seemed like a lot faster while in the karts, but we were zipping all around.  Our average speeds around the track were all between 35-40 seconds per lap.  Larry and I had been last year and then I went on Thursday as well with our niece Kalani.  We were all planning on going together, but Kalani could not make it on Friday, so I just went both days.

Unser Racing and Go-Karting is located at 7300 Broadway, Denver, CO 80221.  You can contact them at (720) 282-5000 or go to their website at 

The karts are fueled and ready to go.

And they’re off!  Let the races begin.

After a hard day of racing everyone was famished.  It was time to eat.  We all decided on going to 5280 Burger in Westminster for a celebratory feast.  Birthday Celebrations – Part 1 – 5280 Burger Bar/5280 Ice Cream  After dinner we celebrated with my lemony wine cake for dessert.  A Lemony Wine Cake   E.J., the manager of 5280, joined us for some cake and celebrations.  We all had way to much to eat, but we all had a good time.



We have one more big day of celebrations, then it will back to normal once again.  I just love celebrating with family and friends.  That’s what life is all about.
