We spent last week in Saratoga. In addition to taking the rabbit for walks we went to the track and walked through town.
Race day is a bit to much for us to handle with Simon right now. So we went to breakfast at the track and watched the early morning practice. I’ve been wanting to do this since I first visited Saratoga in 2006, but since you have to be there by 7 am sleep has always won. Now that I have a little alarm clock, 7am is no problem. We had an entire day by 10 am.
Once he woke up Simon really did watch the horses some. He made all the jockey’s smile. And there was at least one other family pointing out the horses to a much to young infant.
On the way home from the track we stopped in to see the grounds of Yaddo. We saw an exhibit at the library a couple of years ago and have been wanting to visit. Most is closed to the public, but here is the house and the garden.
When we got home our little eskimo was ready for a nap. Like I said a whole day before 10 am. And so glad I packed the pants and jacket. Perfect fall weather all week.
