I haven't been able to post for a while because this past semester has been sooooo busy with teaching, baby care, and planning for our cross-country move...Oh! Did I mention? Our little family is moving back to Cali!
Georgia has treated us so sweet, but now that we have the baby, we want to be close to our families. So, this will be our last spring in Georgia, and that means our last Kentucky Derby in the south.
I just love the Derby, and we're actually planning a family trip to the races when Mia's a little bit older. In the meantime, we'll be celebrating from home.
We got all dressed up in our Derby best. And hooray! Daddy's horse won!
We celebrated the win with some home-cooked shrimp etouffee and blackened catfish (recipe courtesy of the New Orleans Gumbo Shop).
And you can't have a Derby Day without a mint julep.
