A Trip to the Track

 A weekend or two ago we did what any local lexingtonian does on a Saturday in April.
We headed to Keeneland to bet on the ponies!!!!

Our dear friend Ron had us over to his place for a brunch before heading to the track.
We sipped mimosas and ate a delicious spread of bagels and danishes.
Carbies are a must for a day of sip sippin at Kenneland.



We were popping bottles like no big thang


Meg and JC joined us for all the fun.
I am so diggin meg's navy and yellow color combo.

I can't imagine my life in lexington without her. She is NEVER allowed to move away or we will just have to go with them.

Me and my boo.
Doesn't Kevin Rex clean up so nice.
Yep, he's a hottie :-)

Ron, KR, JC and cooper sporting his saturday best (his Louis Vuitton collar)


Ronnie and I were rocking the seersucker and decided we may need to send this photo out as an Easter Holiday card next year.

Trying to take a group photo after you have been sipping champagne is pretty much a nightmare.
This was the best product, but JC's eyes are closed. Waah.

And then we were off....
and the Saturday we picked to go to Keeneland just so happened to me the most crowded day in Keeneland history...EVER! We are talking 40K plus people. It was a little madness at times.
I personally think through the week or a sunday are the best times to go bet on the ponies.
However, we still had a great time.
The more the merrier right?!

It's not a complete day at the track in Ky without a lil bourbon in your drink


KR's picked up some new betting tricks from his friends Cliff and Gene.





I met an awesome group of gals that day.
One is a fellow lexington blogger.
It was my first in person bloggy buddy meeting and Miss Brooke is a true sweetheart.
She is the gorgeous gal in the back and white dress.
I enjoyed her and her friends so much.


Me and megs - Could it be obvious how much we love each other?? :-)

Ha! look at Justin's face. this pic cracks me up.


The sun was shining so bright on my old Kentucky home that day.
Perfect day for a day at the track!


We refueled after keeneland with some much needed Mexican food, re-grouped and headed downtown Lex....




and had a fabulous time!

The end!
