cute towns, cute shops, cool sidewalks, architecture!!

Churchill Downs!

Here we are now a week away from derby day and we are getting to see the horses and the jockeys working the track.  Tons of rain...Tons.  I'm not sure my parents have seen it rain like this...for days in a row.  We went back by the stalls.  Watched the video of Swapps win the derby from 1955!  We really had an amazing time.  We ate at the famous restaurant, called Wagener's.  It is in the movie Secratariat. The tulips are gorgeous, I love having my family here!  I have missed them tonz!

We have visitors come from AZ!!!!! Mom, Dad, Amy, and Owen!

 My cute mom and dad!
 The girls made welcome signs!  They were so excited!

Derby Parade 2011!!

I'm not quite sure we will ever experience another parade quite like this one!!  The bands rapped, the cheer leaders were all about their hiphop.  THey were amazing!!  Such a fun time with the Cochrans!  We had so much fun making our shirts too!  This town parties this time of year!  They have some amazing traditions!
