Derby Week!

It is so nice to be in Louisville this week. There is so much going on and the festival has been fabulous. Our first official derby event was the balloon glow. Because of weather they weren't able to get all of the balloons up and lit, BUT, never the less, we had a blast. The girls just loved being out with their cousins and were thrilled to see all of the derby related things.

Your "ticket" into most events is a pegasus pin, which is the annual derby pin. Every year there are golden pins which put you in a drawing to win many things, including a Honda Odyssey or $20,000 cash....well, Soph got one of the pins!! Funny thing is, my sister has lived here for over 20 years and just said that she has never gotten one, leave it to sweet Sophie Grace. Poor Bella was so envious, I had to remind her that it's a game and if we win, it's just that "WE" win! She seemed satisfied in that. So fingers crossed, positive thoughts and hopeful energy out - I am willing the big prize guys!!! Keep your fingers crossed for us!


  1. OMG, how exciting for Sophie! Fingers crossed that you guys win something fabulous! :)

  2. Sounds like a wonderful time down there! Fingers crossed that you win something great! :-)
