“And They’re Off!” Kentucky Derby

We had such an awesome week celebrating everything Kentucky Derby! 

This week we enjoyed a beautiful ride throughout the valley, where we saw lots of beautiful horses, including some racing horses! There are a few places that even do chariot racing. We also had a fun activity and talked about the Kentucky Derby and it’s traditions. Each Grandfriend decided what color of horse they would like, and named one for our very own Williamsburg Derby. We had an amazing turnout, and we are excited about racing each week. We even have our own “Winner’s Circle”. We finished up the week with Derby Cake for Happy Hour! If you have never had “Derby Cake” you’re missing out! Our version was a chocolate cake with cherry for the fruit! Another favorite of ours is “White Derby Cake”. White cake, cream, and strawberries! Yummy!
