Betting on Fun!

Another great visit to the Saratoga Race Track!  We spent the day with family and friends to celebrate my parents’ anniversary.

Fun is just about the ONLY sure bet when we spend a day at the track…picking a winner just doesn’t seem to be in the cards for us!

But we have a great time anyway…the kids are beyond excited to see the horses!

(That black sweatband was a giveaway from Southpaw’s “little brother” – he’s barely taken it off since he got it!)003

Seamus is going to be a pro…I can feel it!  All this early exposure to the customs of the track is going to pay off when he’s old enough to bet!

Flying high with Poppy!

Waiting on those horses to come by!007 008

At the starting gate!  They love seeing the race up close!

So no big wins for us…other than the new Shake Shack that currently resides at the track…I’d say the salted caramel and cocoa milkshake was a jackpot for sure!

Some great fun at the races! It doesn't look like the kids were bothered any that you didn't win. We need to do a family trip to the races sometime!

Here is what I love most about Seamus and Grace ... they are always so "smiley" and cute in their pictures together. Do they ever have sibling rivalry? I love the sweatband on Seamus's wrist :0)

The kids always have the biggest smiles on their faces. I think you will be in big trouble when they are older----sneaking off to the racetrack. I love Seamus' hair. Remember when Preston told Seamus to eat grilled cheeses? Well I need Seamus to tell Preston to start letting me gel his hair! Also I LOVE Grace's dress. It's so pretty!!!!!! Hope you are feeling well. Love to your parents on their anniversary!
