Horse Races

Last weekend Micah and I were able to get away for our first weekend alone since Bretton has been born. We went to the horse races in Hot Springs with my Dad and was so much fun! We've gone several years now with them, and it's always a good time! I grew up around horses, and my Dad still has several. Not race horses, but it is still fun to hear him talk about the horses that are racing and watch he and Micah make crazy bets. :)
 Thank goodness for my Mom and step-dad! They are always willing to help, and my mom takes on 3 kids like it isn't a big deal. The kids love going to her house, and they didn't act like they missed us much when we got home. :) My mom always sends me a bunch of pictures, and that always helps when we are away! She's even committed to watching them all again for double the time when we go on a work trip for Micah in May. I am seriously spoiled with her help, and I don't take that for granted. :)


We laughed a ton and ate some really great food while we were away. My Dad is a hoot, and we don't get to spend nearly enough time with them. I'm thankful for these weekends full of memories.
As far as the races and betting went, we were total losers. BUT, we had fun, and that's what matters, right? :)
Already looking forward to next year!

  1. Lindsey,
    You are very fortunate to have what seems like a wonderful, fulfilling relationship with both your parents. I wish the same could be true for all children of divorced parents, especially adult children. We never outgrow our need for a mother and daddy. Thanks for sharing your stories.
