V-Day recap

I wanted to spend Valentine's Day with the family so I asked them to go to the horse races with me. My youngest son was very excited, my oldest son--NOT SO MUCH.

It was a good day. Actually I won $77 off a $10 horse. We won't talk about the next bet and how much I didn't win, though. LOL

The whole point of the day was spending time with my boys. Rader (my youngest) was so into the math side of betting. He was constantly picking horses based on their odds. He didn't like to go for longshots (30:1 or so) but he did like 7:1-15:1 odds a lot. And he did surprisingly well with his method.

By the end of the day, Ian's attitude had changed some. Which was a good thing. Otherwise, I wouldn't have gotten this picture.


  1. It's kinda scary how much Radar looks like you. Did any of Fishdog's genes get in him or did you just brew that one alone?

  2. LOL! actually, when they were younger, Ian looked exactly like me and Rader like Fishdog...but that is now shifting. It's very strange.

  3. OMG you guys are so cute!!

    That tongue shot makes me think of this moment this weekend. I was SO wishing I had some fictionistas with me.

    They were serving strawberry poprocket martinis. So help me. With acutal strawberry poprocks on top.

  4. You guys are adorable. :D Thanks for sharing your pictures!!

  5. Awwww! I love the idea of little Rader calculating the odds.
