horse track grandstand.

happy tuesday.  it has been a bit since i have been back, but i was taking a much needed break and enjoying myself in the windy city.

my days were filled with lots of sunshine, city skylines, dinner dates, a pop up carnival and a day at the horse track...

we dressed up especially for the occasion (minus the big floppy hats because we didn't have them...sad day) we wouldn't have it any other way.  we placed bets based on the horses names like "oh my sweetie pie" and "hello sailor" - we won several races...who needs statistics anyway :)

i am headed back to chicago land again in a few weeks and this time i'm packing my hat for a little extra good luck...one can never have enough of it.
