It's Friday

* all of Helena is very proud to have been named to the top 100 places to live in the U.S.

That of course means taco night at the Breland house. Orren included tonight. He was so cute. After I browned the ground sirloin I took some out before adding the taco seasoning. Put a little grated cheddar with it and turned him loose. No shell obviously since that would not be gluten free, but he was happy just the same. Orren used both hands to shovel it in. We are going to have to work on or table manners. I see serious etiquette classes in his future.

We had a perfect afternoon outside. The temp had dropped a touch and the wind was blustery. The children swung and played. Joe and I sat and gave thanks in the gloaming. We sat until darkness encroached & the gloaming surrendered to night. At that moment we toasted our wine glasses and picked the children up and returned to the warm glow of our home.

Tomorrow is the run for the roses. We have all begun to make our selections and chose a favorite for the Derby. We have all of our h'or derves and we will spend the morning putting together our little party. Olivia has finished "making" her hat for the afternoon and I have pulled out the mint julep cups. We love the first Saturday in May and consider it one of our best family traditions!

We are preparing for the thunderstorms to move in later, so we have our fingers crossed that both children will remain in their own beds!

Your right! The weather was great right up to the storm. I love when it feels that way.
