$2 on horse #2!

IMG_7786

So, we headed out to the horse track memorial weekend with 17 of our friends! Kylie and Trey headed up this operation by securing us a suite at the races! It was so nice having our own bar and bartender inside the room! Score! We had a great time with all our friends, who coincidentally are mostly neighbors! Have I mentioned before how great my neighbors are!? Well, there I said it! We had a babysitter for the day and spent the afternoon out at Lonestar Park. Brooks and Justin were the big winners for the day bringing home $250 from race #2! The VERY last race Brooks {almost} won $8000! IMG_7704Yes, you read that right {almost}! It was a photo finish between 2nd and 3d place. Brooks had picked 1st, 2nd and……yep, you guessed it #4! Man, was he bummed! BUT we had a great day despite that minor loss….he did talk about it the entire way home ;) IMG_6157_thumb[4]IMG_7689 Kylie and Trey also won some $$$ in Race #1.   IMG_7697IMG_7692 IMG_7702   IMG_7725 IMG_7727 Both winners!

How fun! The ONE time I went to the horse races, I actually WON money...not anywhere near $8000 though...but still :-) And, I agree with the two fun & frivolous ladies above...you look super cute in these pics!

What a blast! We live close to the Saratoga racetrack, and we spend just a few too many days up there losing money in the summer! Can't stay away though, it's too much fun!

Looks like fun! I was hoping to see you girls with your hats on like the Real Desperate Housewives of Orange County :0) $8,000 would have been nice, darn it!

8,000 would have been the reason to buy that ticket to NYC! LOL! We are going to miss you! And cute Cole! You are lucky you have such cool neighbors. Mine are older than me so I don't really feel like I fit in-I am really looking to buy a house in a younger development because you guys look like you have a great time!
