We had the chance to get away this weekend and had wonderful time! My friend Sandy had box tickets to the horse races at Oaklawn in Hot Springs and they invited us to come along. I’d never been to the races and it was a lot of fun!
Zach handled most of the betting. I did help him pick one race where the horse won! This picture is of two horses that he happened to pick for an exacta box bet (either horse could win as long as the other came in 1st or 2nd) and I just so happened to capture a picture of the two of them and they were 1st & 2nd!!!
We ended our weekend by going through Little Rock on our way home to have dinner with our friends who we don’t see nearly enough! It was great catching up with y’all, Chenin & Chuck!
Ava had a good time with her grandparents while we were gone. I was ready to pick her up this morning after church but she wasn’t so sure about us after leaving her! She had fun and was so busy she couldn’t even talk to me on the phone when I called! As much as I missed her (and even felt a little guilty about leaving her for two nights), we had a good time and it was good to get away from our parenting responsibilities for a couple of days!
Busy week ahead – lots of church services for Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter! What an important week as we reflect on the death of Jesus and celebrate His Resurrection!
Have a wonderful week!
