Opening Day of the Horse Races is something that I look forward to every year. I don't even understand the betting structure so I never bet and barely pay attention to the actual races, but we only go to Emerald Downs once a year, so I look forward to it every year. Last year, we took this Bambinos with us and this was no exception.
There's just something so cute about babies eating, isn't there?
I ran into an old friend from High School, but I also ran into my ex best friend. It was one of the most awkward situations I've ever been in. The last time I had talked to my ex bff, I had just found out I was pregnant, but I couldn't share the news with him because he had talked nonstop about how he was going to get married. I never heard from him again so it was like, "Hi, how are you? Meet my 15 month olds." I know he goes to the races all the time so I prepared myself for the possibility I would run into him especially since I know Jon still hangs out with him, but I didn't think he'd have the balls to come say "Hi," with Jon. I hope to not have to go through this every year on opening day.
The Bambinos were doing so well sitting in the stroller, but I decided to let them out and maybe work out some energy. Peanut loved being able to walk around and show off his skills.
Lovebug was perfectly content on a blanket.
Lovebug loved being able to watch the people and see the horses, I love giving them opportunities to people watch.
The best thing about this year is we're not the only ones with kids anymore! Our friends Brian and Melissa welcomed their baby about 4 weeks early so we got to meet her at the races. Like Melissa said while we were leaving, "Who would have thought a few years ago that we'd have seen this sight?"
It is kinda crazy to see the two dads pushing the strollers.
