Kate: Kentucky Derby without kids

Kate Gosselin spent most of Mother's Day weekend the way many parents wish they could: Without the kids.

Kate: Kentucky Derby without kidsKate Gosselin celebrated Mother's Day weekend by living out the dream of parents everywhere: Ditching the kids.

Instead of staying home with her brood of eight loud, rambunctious and probably sticky kids, Kate hit the road and headed out to the Kentucky Derby, where she showed off her surgically-assisted taut figure in a series of snug dresses.

"Her legs looked amazing!" an onlooker told E! News.

Lest you call her an unfeeling mom, Kate did make it home in time for actual Mother's Day, where she treated herself and the kids to Chinese food instead of cooking -- her little gift to herself.

She tweeted: "Thanks for all the well wishes re mom day! Finally home and ready for my kiddies to arrive and get our celebration started... yay! & I pickedupChinesetake out4dinner!Something I do MAYBE 1-2 Xs/yr(kids like momshomemade).It'smday&i'm not cking!(wld have but not hm in X)!"

What do you think Jon Gosselin got her?
