As I mentioned in my last post, we were spending most of our day at our friends' house for their Kentucky Derby party/bbq.
Well, the weather was questionable but we had a blast! Every woman and each little girl made and wore their own "Derby Hat". Basically we went to a store and bought plain straw hats and decorated them with big silk flowers! They turned out wonderfully! I took a picture of my friend's daughter Kate wearing her creation!! So cute! Each of us picked a horse and bet a $1.00 (my horse didn't win, figures!), two people won! Also when we arrived there was a table just filled with "traditional Kentucky Derby food" right down to the Mint Juleps.
The big adventure for everyone was trying the "Mint Juleps" no one had ever had one! Boy were they strong ( I can see why they're a once a year thing)! One sip and "Woo Hoo!!!
Also, watching my husband play Wiffle Ball with the kids in the backyard after he had drank one of those super strong Mint Juleps was quite hilarious! He wasn't drunk, but even with a little buzz he was something to see trying to run the bases or tag a running child! lol!
