Some of my readers may know that my wonderful little boy is a Derby baby. Which means he will always have a bomb birthday when he gets older. So to start his birthday weekend off, I decided to take him to Churchill Downs to watch the horses practice.
We got out there about 7:00 Thursday morning, I wasn't sure what to expect so it was something new to the both of us. Let me tell you, for someone who knows nothing of horses or horse racing, watching those horses practice was one beautiful moment. Ive never been to Churchill Downs before, Ive been to the museum, but that does no justice whatsoever for the track. I enjoyed watching the horses prance past us up close and personal, but i enjoyed my sons reaction to the horses more. Hes growing up to be such a big young man, it just makes my eyes water every time i think about it.
In case you were wondering who the winning derby horse is going to be, let me give you a little insight..
After going to the track, we went to the Pegasus Parade. This was the first year going to the parade since being out here, and it was chilly. But the weather every Derby is generally chilly. But we were out there watching everything going down.
This is my life. I wouldn't change a thing.
