There is not much that makes me happier than the first weekend in May. It is a sure sign that the long cold winter is over and we finally have warm months ahead. Flowers are blooming, the breeze is blowing, and Kentucky is a wonderful place to be. For the last several years, we have gone to the Kentucky Derby with my sister and her family. It has become a tradition that I look forward to more and more each year. In the past, we have always gone to the paddock and had a great time there! People watching, talking with friends, watching the horses make their way into the track, and sipping on cold juleps makes any day brighter!! This year, for the first time, we purchased seats. It was a great time and I'm sure we will do that many times in the future!! We also went to the Kentucky Oaks for the first time, which is the day before the derby. It's basically the derby for fillies! We loved every bit of it. Already counting the days until the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby!
