Virginia Gold Cup Races

One of the companies that Dave does business with invited us to their Anniversary Celebration @ the Virginia Gold Cup Races. Personally I was a little nervous since we have never been to a nice horse race before and I was expected to wear a fancy hat (or so I was told--many women didn't have one. If I would have known it would have saved me lots of frrustration!). Our children were also invited , so it made it nice to be able to bring them and show them off too--they clean up pretty well, after all!!

The kids all dressed up and eating lunch.
The family shot. This is mainly so that you can see my AWESOME hat!!

The rest of these are of some of the races so that you can get a feel for what it was like there. It was a very cloudy day. We were really lucky, though, and it didn't rain while we were there.

It was a really fun day. I don't know that we will ever get the opportunity to do something like it again so I am really glad we went!
