Daddy's Day 2013

This past Father's Day we did something a little different.  My step-dad, Rick, had duty crew that night for the fire company, so we couldn't go out to dinner that night.  Instead we decided to head to WV for the day and spend some time at the Hollywood Casino and Race Track in Charles Town.  It was the kids' first trip to the race track, so they had a blast watching the horses race and "placing bets" (John let Jacob pick a few random numbers and we placed bets on those horses.  I think we may have actually won back a few dollars.  lol)

 The first race went off without a hitch ... or so we thought. This little guy knocked his jockey right off as soon as he left the gate and then just aimlessly ran around the track. haha

 After watching a few of the races it was time to head inside for our brunch buffet! OMG was the food wonderful. I love it there! It's a little pricey, but so worth it.

 We bet on a few more races before leaving, and I think we won a few more bucks back! I'm not a huge horse racing fan, but it was kind of fun to actually get back a little bit of our money. I think the dads in our lives enjoyed themselves ... I know the women and children did. :) Plus it was a fun and different way to spend our Father's Day this year. Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there, but most of all to my step-dad, my father-in-law and last, but certainly not least, my husband and father of my two precious babies. :)

 And, just for fun, I'm adding in these photos .. I did this picture at the end of May for a fun Father's Day card this year and all the dads in our lives LOVED it! Here it is:
