19/52: Kentucky Derby Day and Mother's Day Brunch

Last Saturday, Brian and I celebrated Kentucky Derby Day at Emerald Downs in Auburn, WA.  It's a fun event and the weather was fabulous.  It's a great day to people watch and try and cash a few winning tickets.  I won a few races at Emerald Downs, but Brian and I didn't have any luck with the Derby this year.  The Preakness is May 21st.

On Sunday, we hosted Mom and Kenny for Mother's Day Brunch.  In honor of Brian's Mom who passed away several years ago, I used her blue china and her silver as a way of remembering her and keeping her memory in our home.  I made biscuits and gravy from scratch and Sammy spoiled Grammy with mimosas and presents.

How did you spend the first weekend in May?
