Kentucky Derby Day

Last Saturday, Brian and I went down to Emerald Downs in Auburn, WA to watch some live horse racing and watch the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby.

It was an unusually warm spring day!  When we arrived at Emerald Downs, we found a large crowd and lots of ladies in hats.  I bought my little ensemble off EBAY for less than $20 (a great place to buy vintage hats if you ever need one).

Right off the bat....I won the Emerald Downs daily double (I picked the winner of the first and second races).  I won $23!!

It was all downhill from there.  Neither Brian or I cashed a ticket on the Derby (we never do), but we had a great afternoon.
