Derby Day

Mom and I watched the Kentucky Derby yesterday. We were rooting for the filly, Eight Belles. She did very well, and finished the race in second place. Sadly, she broke both her front ankles, and had to go to the Paddock in the Sky.

You guys were pretty good guessing which of the fabrics Mim-may would choose for her backpack. Seven of you chose "B", which was Mim-may's choice!

Mom stayed up wicked late last night working on a project so secret I can't tell you if it is big or small, if it's for a cat or a bean. I can't even tell you what it is, what it looks like, who it is going to, when it is going there or even where it is going.I can't tell you how annoying that is. (And there are NO clues in this picture, either).

Millie, the Derby broke our hearts. We were cheering for Belle too.
Such a secret! I wonder what it is???

MomBean didn't watch the derby, she was baking. Again. She's used up almost all of the sugar in the house, the cocoa powder and the cupcake papers. The stork needs to get here before she gets another idea in her head to bake more.

...but we are almost out of bread...

So sad to read about Eight Belles. We get upset when the horses have to go the paddock in the sky. Hope you guys are enjoying some nice May weather. FAZ

It broke our hearts to have Eight Belles do so well in the race and then get injured.

I don't like secrets, give me a hint.

Millie said...

Sorry, no hints. Mom says if I let this secret out I'll never get treats as long as I live.

Sophia said...

I'm not seeing an issue with that Millie... do tell! Oh, and let Mum know we have roasted veggie stock up today.
