Keeneland Day

This weekend Ivy visited Keeneland for the very first time. I feel like this is a birthright when you are from Lexington... or now the nearby city of Nicholasville! :) My aunt Vicki and Charlie were visiting from Alabama and were excited to go to Keeneland for the first time. Anthony and Chelsea, and my Uncle Tony came down to join the fun! A good time was had by all. Ivy loved the horses but more than anything she loved dressing up and "prancing" around. She instantly had a strut in her walk when she walked into the Clubhouse and noticed she (and many others) were dressed up to come see the pretty horses! It was funny to see her more prissy than normal. We had a super time and can't wait to go back in the fall.

My two loves!

All the ladies together!

Ivy's favorites..... :) Unc and Esie!
Our little family... or growing family, I should say!

My favorite part about our day was my conversation with Ivy when I was putting her to bed. I always ask her what her favorite thing about the day was and yesterday she responded, "I liked when the pink and purple horse boys waved to me." haha... In boys she is talking about those itty-bitty jockeys and their pretty outfits!! :)


  1. Love Ivy's little hand on your belly! Too cute!

  2. First of all, you look great! And secondly, we were there this weekend too. We only went for breakfast though and walked around to see the horses. We didn't stay for the races. I don't think Colin could sit still that long!

  3. How fun! Sounds like a great day :) You guys looks so cute!


Thanks for your encouragement as I travel through this season of life called mommyhood!
