How much fun can a horse race really be?!

I was really excited about spending a weekend away from home, spending it with friends and experiencing something I've never really paid much attention to (other than the pretty hats).   This weekend, made me a believer - and a little bit of a gambler. 

Rob and I ended up in Keeneland to experience the Kentucky Derby in full dress and hat mode. The race was in Churchill Downs (which was maybe an hour from Keeneland), but it wasn't like we weren't surrounded by people in their derby finest.  Seersucker, huge hats, even the shoes,  oh my!

Hanging out with some of the funniest people that I know didn't hurt either.  Between Tullous being drunk (and HILARIOUS), Celena being the only sober one, Tasia trying to teach everyone about the horses (while being really drunk herself), Kyle trying to keep an eye on her, Gio (who the waitress even called Dr. Doofus) and Anne-Marie being well, Anne-Marie - it was a memorable trip. 

We made it home today - hungover and very tired, so we crashed and took a way too long nap.  On to start our week after a very exciting weekend!   Thanks to all that made it happen...     and a million thanks to Tasia for letting us crash at your place.  :-)
