...And they're off!
Last Saturday was the Kentucky Derby. We had our first annual Kentucky Derby party. The women wore hats. The men drank heavily (well, that wasn't just the men). It was a lot of fun. Husband had his best friend and his family from out of town, and we had a lot of our local friends as well. As I wrote somewhere else, we had 20 people in an apartment that fit 10. There was food and games. Unfortunately, the horse that I supported was the one that had to be put down. I am not a horse person, but it is so sad when a horse has to be put down. It makes me so sad.
The party, of course, would have been loads of fun if I hadn't been so sick. I had the flu most of the week before and was making progress. However, I was still very congested (as you can see from my red nose).
On Sunday, we went to Day out With Thomas. We got to take a ride on Thomas the Tank Engine, see a bunch of trains close up. Of course, I was still sick. Still, I think everyone had fun, and that's all that counts.
While we were out, Baby's grandparents and great-grandparents babysat her. She was an angel though I think she had too much fun. She didn't want to sleep. It even took awhile for her to wind down and get to sleep after we got home... an hour after her bedtime! So, very busy weekend! I'm going to need all week to recover and shake this flu-thing.
