And They're Off - And It's Over

Derby Day!

It's finally here. It seems like we have been getting ready for it for months. To make a long story short, none of our horses won. The winner came from behind and no one saw him coming. The horses name was Animal Kingdom and really that's about all I know about him. The local TV coverage started at 5:30 this morning and is still going on. We got up early, not 5:30 early and went to the zoo for our walk. On the way we saw the GoodYear Blimp, but we did not see Martha Stewart's plane landing, which was a bummer. Once home we pretty much spent the rest of the day watching races and getting ready for the BIG ONE. We celebrated with special Derby Day snacks and of course Mint Juleps(which we thaught were awful so we dumped them out and made mojitos. Please don't tell on us). For dinner we enjoyed another derby tradition - Kentucky Fried Chicken. Doesn't get much better than that. Hope you had a special Derby Day too.
