Hold Your Horses, Meezy Hit the 3-5

Meezy had a milestone birthday this year, as he turned 35 in early April. We wanted to do something memorable for it, and we love celebrating with friends, so we invited 25 people to join us in a private suite at Lone Star Park. The setup was awesome! Our suite had a private bar with a dedicated bartender, in-suite hors d'oeuvres, a self-serve wagering machine, couches and recliners, a couple of TVs, a dining table, and a private balcony. We were situated right over the finish line, so we had a perfect view! We also had access to the extensive buffet right outside our suite, which was top notch. It was really cool to have an unlimited assortment of food and drinks at our fingertips, while being able to hang out and be comfortable among just our own group. When it was race time, we'd head out to the balcony to cheer on our favorite horses. I highly recommend a private suite if you're going to spend a day at the races!

Our awesome friend, Rachel, made custom cake pops to commemorate the occasion. And did I mention they had exotic racing in-between the horse races? That means we got to see zebras, camels, and ostriches race too! It was quite entertaining. I know my hubby had a great birthday celebration and I hope our guests enjoyed themselves too!
