Right now, I just want to thank mom and dad for coming to Lexington and spending the day with me and Pete! We had a great afternoon --went to Wallace Station in Woodford County for lunch before heading out to Keeneland for a day at the race track. It was raining when we got there and looking like we were going to have a pretty miserable afternoon, but the skies cleared up and we were able to enjoy a few sunny moments! We also had quite a winning streak going, which always makes for a more enjoyable time. Dad cleared the most profit with $27 dollars on a $2 bet for Rogue Scholar to win.

And they're off!
After Keeneland, we went home and I took a nap before heading to the Opera house for the show. I had to be there at six, the curtain wasn't until eight. Mom, Dad, Pete, and five of our friends all came to opening night --thanks again guys! I think they had a good time, it's definitely a lively show from a visual aspect, and who doesn't love Gershwin? I don't have any pictures of me with my folks after show, but I'm sure if we beg/overflow his inbox with emails, he will send me one from his camera and I'll post it. After the show we came home and chatted for a bit before heading to bed. We were in for an early morning as mom and dad needed to to be dropped off at the airport at 6:30. But it was great to have them here, even for a short amount of time!
