Nashville and Randy Rogers!!!!

This past week has been a fun week for us. Thursday I took clients to Keeneland for a day at the races and Anne went out there that afternoon to watch a friend's horse race. The horse (Radar Man) ended up winning his race. It was such a great day! On Saturday Anne and I got up early to get all our chores done so we could hit the road to Nashville. What a fantastic time we had!! We met one of our college buddies, Ed down there and it was great to see him. We went to McFadden's downtown and had some drinks and some appetizers and caught up. Then we headed to the Randy Rogers concert at the Exit/In. WOW!! The Randy Rogers band is so awesome! Anne and I have been fans for quite sometime and they proved to be incredible in concert. Their fiddle player is amazing. He can totally rock a fiddle!! I am so glad we went and it was a nice quick trip to one of our favorite towns and we got to hang out with one of our favorite people. On our way home we stopped at our mothers and she made us a great late lunch. It was great to see our mom, we talk everyday but we don't get to see her very much. Anne and I both took a nap (late night the night before, we were TIRED!!) and headed home. So now we are home, all the critters are fed and happy and we are getting ready for the work week. This upcoming weekend is the CKRH trail ride, we are excited about that. This is the organization that our friends Whitney and Cavan volunteer. We have some friends that are going to meet up with at the ride so it should be lots of fun. I hope every one had a great weekend!!

Anne, Ed and her GUINNESS!!

A weekend with the horses.....

Leigh and I pretty much spent our weekend with the horses. We went to Masterson both Saturday and Sunday, and enjoyed a long ride each day. There were many people at Masterson riding as well, and it was a gorgeous weekend to be out with the boys. We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, and enjoyed this great fall weather!

What a weekend....

Leigh and I had a busy weekend, but a good one. We were lucky enough to take off half a day on Friday and spend it at Keeneland! What a beautiful day it was. Whitney and Hilori joined us and we had a great time. We ran into John, Johnny D, Bob, and Greg, and it was great to catch up with old friends. It seems that we don’t see them unless we are at the meet or the sales, but that is okay, it is always a good time.

Saturday morning, Leigh and I went and got a load of hay and feed, and then rushed back to the house because Mom and Bob were coming over to install the BEAUTIFUL bookcases that Bob had built us. They are amazing. I am so happy with how they look, and Bob is just so talented!! Paul came over to help with the installation, which was great! It didn’t take them to long to get them in and we all just stared at them for the longest time. He couldn’t have matched the stain any better!!! Thank you again Bob!!

Sunday morning, we got up and fed, and then got the horses ready to go to Masterson. It was such a gorgeous day, we couldn’t wait to get out there. Hilori met us, and she rode Rebo. This was Dually’s first outing, since everything has been going on with him, and he was perfectly sound and did great. Drifter did really well too. We had a great leisure ride around the park and just enjoyed the day and being out with the horses.

We hope everyone had a great weekend as well!!

The Wife over at Gizzards and Calf Fries was so generous to give Leigh and I this sweet award. We dont know her very well, but so enjoy reading her blog. She seems so much like a girl that Leigh and I would hang out with.

To translate the gift from Portuguese to English, it means:

"This blog invests and believes, the proximity" (meaning, that blogging makes us 'close' -being close through proxy)

"They all are charmed with the blogs, where in the majority of its aims are to show the marvels and to do friendship; there are persons who are not interested when we give them a prize, and then they help to cut these bows; do we want that they are cut, or that they propagate?Then let's try to give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to 8 bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this text."

I dont know 8 bloggers! HAHA So I am going to give it to the ones I do know!

Baby Ridge..

Leigh and I got to go and see wonderful Baby Ridge last weekend. It was so great to meet this little fellow. He is so precious and just amazing!! We had a wonderful visit with Gina and Brent. They are doing great as well, and have jumped right into parenthood. They are team and they work so well together. They are family,and it is always great to see family.
