Today was the steeplechase races in Aiken. I have never been so it was a 1st for me & Casey. We wernt sure what to expect but we figured out it is just one big party with lots of food & a few races thrown in there for an excuse for everyone to get together. First we met up with Casey's Godfather Dennis & fashion advisor Paul. They were babysitting Barrett while his mom & dad went out of town. Here is Casey & her new friend. He wasnt real sure what to think about all this. The races were about 30 min apart so that gave Casey a lot of time to try to run off, we called it visiting & making new friends! We did see some other people that we knew. We always had to stop wherever we were to see the horses. Here they come!!!!
This guy didnt race, he just walked around on the field. Casey waved to all the horses as they went by. This guy got close enough to notice Casey waving at him & waved back. Casey just really wanted to pet the horse.
Casey only tried to get on the field once which really surprised me. This is where she stood to watch the horses go by.
Here is momma & Casey!
Casey checking out all the people.

Here are Paul & Barrett. Barrett liked the pigs in a blanket.

Overall it was a good day. Casey did get to pet some horses finally. Casey was worn out & went to sleep on the way home.
