Kentucky Lovin’

Whew, what a whirlwind of a wonderful weekend! My fiancé and I went to Kentucky for the weekend to spend time with his family and celebrate our recent engagement. I have been to Kentucky many times now, but this was the first time I’ve visited during the spring, and also the first time I was able to go to Keeneland. The spring is absolutely beautiful – with dogwoods blooming all over, birds chirping and singing in the trees, and everyone in a good mood because of the lovely weather.

For those of you who don’t know what Keeneland is, it’s a famous horse racing track located in Lexington, Kentucky. As a matter of fact, this year it was recognized for its 4th consecutive year for being the number one rated Thoroughbred racetrack in North America. They hold races there in April and October each year, and it seems to me that Keeneland is much more popular with people who are born and raised in Kentucky than is the Kentucky Derby. Here’s a pic of the perfect day we went out there:

We partied with the family, and had a fun Easter lunch celebration as well. One of my sister-in-laws has the CUTEST 2 year old dog ever, so naturally I had to share some pics of lil’ Murphy boy:

Life is good!

  4. That’s pretty much what I think of when you say Kentucky is the derby (ok, and chicken) Sounds like you had the ideal Easter weekend catching up with family, celebrating impending nuptials and playing with cute dogs, lol 🙂

    • Haha – I think most people think of the derby and KFC! The original KFC is in Corbin, Kentucky, and it is such a cute, nice little restaurant (that’s what it started out before it became a chain). Kentucky also has one of the two moonbows that happen in the world – at Cumberland Falls. How’s that for a little KY history? lol
