Labor Day Horse Races

My Juliette. With me since 1997. I love you.


From Springsteen
I’m standing in the backyard
Listening to the party inside
Tonight I’m drinkin’ in the forgiveness
This life provides
The scars we carry remain but the pain slips away it seems
Oh won’t you baby be in my book of dreams?


Remington Park Horse Races

We enjoyed Labor Day horse races at Remington Park this year. I think this is the third year we’ve done this.

Juliette’s beautiful hair. All those highlights are natural!

Bridgy with color-coordinated hair bands. Of course!

This is Brownie. Every week he goes home with a different Pre-K student. A field journal accompanies him and the kids write about their adventures. Bridgy brought him along to the horse races. His horse won.

And, more than just horses’ manes.

Old Jockey

The life of a jockey, it’s thrills and spills.

In a former life Robert was a horse trainer and rode competitively.

Horse with shamrock Bra

Our favorite horse of the day. He drinks shamrock shakes from McDonalds.

Horse Hand at Remington Park

Saluting the U.S. Flag

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream:
Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

How did you spend Labor Day 2011?

    I love horse races. I used to go with my family to the races in Saint Johns, AZ and make my own bets when I was in 7th grade. The jockeys used to place bets also.
    I know that you liked the gray horse but my mother’s bit of advice was to never bet on a gray horse.
    Beautiful post, you have a beautiful family!!
