Go, Baby, Go!!

In case some of you don't know, this weekend was Derby weekend here in KY. I've never been to the derby, but I do go to my sisters party and bet on some horses.
 Before the party, I got in a little run. My brother in law told me he had made some banana icecream and some Ghirardelli chocolate ice cream for the party. Although I have gone cold turkey on my ice cream addiction, I knew I couldn't pass up homemade ice cream. And that was ok with me.

I had a great run. I wish it was a little faster, but other than that, the temperature was perfect and I loved every second.

After getting cleaned up from that, it was time to party!
I'm not sure how much this weighed, but it felt like 50 lbs. It was amazing.

My beautiful sister and her fabulous hat. Am I the only one who wishes these hats would come back in style? I think they're so much fun!

 This weekend my sister in Wisconsin had her sweet baby Jude. It kills me that he is 8 hours away. Pretty sure I'll be making a trip there asap!
Now I have 2 sweet baby nephews, just a couple months apart. That means double the cute baby pictures. Just to warn you...
I'm linking up with my sweet friend Tara, at Running 'N' Reading for the weekend update.

 Tell me something you did this weekend!

  1. That looks like so much fun! I think that next year I should throw a Kentucky Derby party here in NY (where none of my friends know nothing about it, I'll admit)...but those hats!!!! Any reason to wear them. It would be great if they came back in style to protect from the summer (we skipped spring and it will probably be fall next week) sun!!

  3. I love that y'all had a Derby party, Katie!! And, for the record, I wish we could wear hats around like that ALL the time, not just at Derby time; we're true Southern ladies, are we not? ;) I'm so glad you had a nice weekend; thanks so much for linking up with the blog and I hope your Monday is going well!
