Aiken Steeplechase 2012

For the past three years, we have made the road trip to Aiken to go to the Aiken Spring Steeplechase. The first year, Dan & I ventured out by ourselves to see what it was all about. Last year, Nana, Poppa & Stryker joined us and we got rained out after only race. This year, however, was PERFECT! We all had such a fun family day. The weather was beautiful, Stryker was intrigued by the horses and the whole family had a great day!

It's always necessary to wear your best race day attire. This year I ordered matching bow ties for my boys and they were HOT! 

Love my handsome boy!!

My heart!
