Springtime in Kentucky can be gorgeous. This year spring started a month and a half early and since the first week of March we've had the pleasure of early tulips and dogwood trees. Unfortunately, the beautiful colors have made the wait for this year's Derby that much longer/harder.
But it's here now! Two years I did a blog post about our yearly tradition. We don't go to the actual crazy Derby infield at Churchill anymore, but we usually picnic out in the paddock at Keeneland. It's beautiful out there and with a hundred TV's set up to watch the races, mint julip booths at every major corner, and some great people watching...it makes for a fun-filled afternoon.
