Derby Days 2011

Keeping with tradition, my parents hosted a Derby Days party just like my grandparents used to host at our house when I was a little girl...
Of course, with all of the flooding issues and the fact that their basement is practically a swimming pool, they just had our family this year! We like to think of it as a trial run... 
But we had so much fun with our big hats, Mint Juleps, and betting boards!

Next year, I will take more photos... 
This year, I was too busy enjoying the Mint Juleps and family fun!

On a side note, Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers out there!
God has blessed us with an incredible gift in our Brynn Roslyn, and I will be forever grateful...

Here's a little glimpse of my present from Brynn & Daddy... :)
