But I digress... it was a fun weekend, and the best horse-related part of all? I made a trip to see horse racing live!
Friday we left after lunch and made it to an aunt's house at 10:30pm. Long day of driving, so not much to be interested in there.
Saturday I was reminded by my awesome friend from Beyond the Stretch that I just happened to be staying 30 minutes from Zia Park. Therefore, after spending some time baking with my grandma and having lunch with a dear cousin, I headed out to see horse racing for the first time!

We had a lot of fun with family yet on Sunday and got home Monday evening. I also finally got to stop and snap a picture of the statue in front of the super famous 6666 Ranch. One day I'll stop and get a tour!
How was your weekend? What do you have planned for the Thanksgiving holidays?
