Churchill Downs

We've had a busy week crisscrossing the southeast and are almost done! I spent a day in Louisville at Churchill Downs and loved it - but no surprise there.

 
I started the day at the Derby Museum at Churchill Downs. I always figured Churchill Downs was out in the country but it's in the middle of the city!
 
 
The famous twin spires.

 
The horses in the paddock area - this is where the cameras are set up on Derby Day. This horse ended up winning but I've already forgotten his name!

 
And they're off! I was able to stand right at the rail which I'm sure is impossible for bigger races.

 
It was a muddy day - here's the winner.

 
 
Making our way back towards home we spent the night with John and Eryn and got to meet baby Avery. I just love his hair!

Sunday Ride

Yesterday was a beautiful day for a ride!

 

 
Ryan was able to come along and take pictures. We've had a wonderful weekend doing not much of anything. We went to see the Captain Phillips movie on Saturday and it was great. Now we begin another week of interviews!
