Our friends, Bill & Jennifer, hosted a Kentucky Derby Party today.

 I went to the Salvation Army Thrift Shop and bought myself this lovely hat.  One MUST have a hat to attend the Derby.
 We all picked out a horse who we thought would win.  Here Jennifer is handing out the awards to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th winners.  Kaylee had the winner and got the Derby Roses.
Larry was #2 & Gary #3 and they both got candy bracelets.  Judy was 4th and got a candy bracelet & necklace just because she was the female.
Female attendee's

Failed to get a picture of the guys, although Bill had on a cowboy hat and Josh had on a leather hat.

We snacked, watched the race and had a really good time.  Nothing like good Christian friends & fun.  
Thanks Jennifer & Bill~~~~

What a fun thing to do with friends! Love all the pretty hats - made me think of Ascot in England.

You could have had my Kentucky Derby tea shirt if I had know. Got it from a friend I was staying with in Louisville whose husband owned one of the horses at the time.
