A Day at the Races

A Day at the Races

We spent the majority of our day in Hot Springs at the races, and it was the best day!

The weather was awesome, there were fun activities happening all around, and we just enjoyed ourselves so much!

We stopped to see the statue out front and a nice group of college boys took our picture for us.

When we walked in, Remi spotted the mascot horse walking around and we had to follow him to take a picture. I didn’t catch a smile from her in this pic (I was taking it quickly because the National Anthem was starting), but she was thrilled to see him!

Mom and Remi got food and I got a drink. Remi looked SO big just eating her own big piece of pizza.

Oaklawn tea for the win! Lemonade with sweet tea vodka.

I took Remi down to the fence for the first race and we had some special time. I told her all about coming here as a little girl with my parents, and told her all about grandpa and how he taught me about the horses.

My mom snapped this from behind. Love my girl. Thankful to share these special moments with her.

We made our way to the infield because it was open for the food truck festival. First stop were the bouncy houses! Remi had a blast.

Face painting is always a hit. I’m thankful when stuff like this is free (it all was!).

They also had a petting zoo, and she got to bottle feed a goat. She loved this.

We grabbed lunch at the food trucks and then went back to the stands to find Nene and Carl. Remi was SO excited to see Carl down with the horses, and so he came up to say hi to us.

She loved seeing Nene (and I know Nene loved showing her off), and then Nene got her a sweet stuffed horse- which was the same color as the horse we bet on- Cherokee Chatter- so that’s what Remi named her new stuffy. Love it!

It was the perfect day at the track!
