Liam’s First Track Day

On a whim, the kids and I joined my parents at the Saratoga Race Track on a day that was supposed to be rainy.  The summer is just flying by, and I really didn’t want to miss an opportunity to get Liam up there for his first visit!  So although Daddy had to work, we ended up having a great day and the weather was perfect. 

Ready to pick a winner!

Training Liam on how to be a good race spectator.

Seamus is an old pro!

And Grace is following in her big bro’s footsteps!

We are usually content hanging out at a picnic table in the back, but Seamus loves catching all the action in the grandstands…he doesn’t want to miss a minute.  He always has the binoculars handy!

Liam is waiting for the horses to fly by…

Love these three :-)

No big wins for us, because I’m usually more focused on eating than gambling (hello, Shake Shack on site!!), but hopefully we’ll make it one more time this season with Daddy!  Still a chance to come away with a win!

Another great day at the track! Love seeing Seamus up high on the fence...definitely something Aidan would be doing. One of these days we'll have to make our way to the races. I'm not much of a gambler either but on a hot day, shakes sound perfect! Smart chica!!!

How fun!! I agree that the summer has just flown by this year! Great photos - love the one of Seamus on the fence with his binoculars - what a pro! Of course, love the last one of your three adorable kids too! Haha - I would be at the Shake Shack also!
