Vacation Recap

So I realize that is has been two weeks since my last post but we've been pretty busy over here in the Rudy household.  School has really picked up for Ryan this Spring and I started a new job with my company in March.  Needless to say, we've had a lot going on!  However, we did find time for a vacation :)

Last Monday, Ryan flew to Atlanta to meet his brother in laws for a guys trip.  After meeting up that Monday night they headed down to Augusta to watch the practice round of the Masters on Tuesday.  I'm pretty sure they had a great time and then decided to try their luck in golf and managed to get in a few rounds over the next couple of days.

On that Thursday I flew out to Kentucky with my sister in laws to all meet up in Lexington for a little weekend getaway.  One of Ryan's sisters and her family live there and we actually went up last April and then again in October to visit but this was the first time all the siblings were all able to make it together!  We started off the weekend by having a private tour of a beautiful horse farm on Friday morning.  It was a little windy but I think we all enjoyed listening to how everything works out there and seeing the sights.



That Friday afternoon the girls ventured off for a little shopping at the local boutiques and the boys went on out to Keeneland.  After a few hours we met the guys at the horse track to catch the final races.  The weather was absolutely perfect and it was great to just be outside.  Later that evening we cooked fajitas and played a little cornhole. 

On Saturday, we all dressed in our finest, had a mimosa or two to kick off the day and headed back out to Keeneland.  Once again, we could have not been luckier with the weather.  A few of us went a little early and I was able to walk around a take a few pics of the scenery. 




We had a few winners in our group that day but unfortantely Ryan and I didn't walk away as lucky. Oh well, at least we had fun trying, right?? Ryan didn't have quite the same attitude :)


Once again we had a great time visiting Lexington but I think the best part about our little vacation was being able to spend time with our family.
