Run for the Roses Derby Party

Last weekend, as you know, was the return of the much anticipated and nationally celebrated Kentucky Derby. Having a great love for all things silly and over-the-top, especially parties, I couldn't miss the chance to throw just such a soiree. And boy was it! Our kickball team rallied together to help throw the best derby party in the history of derby parties! Our fearless team captain, even mustered the strength to join his comrades after suffering a severe sprain during our game earlier in the day (whilst wearing a horse costume)! We thought we were going to have to put him down, but he came through!

Complete with mint juleps, burgoo stew, bourbon infused everything, bow ties, hats, bocce ball, and bets, our Race for the Roses Derby Party was truly epic!  When the heart pounding, thundering hoofed two minutes was over, we took to the lawn for a rousing game of bocce ball, which I have no doubt was an absolute nuisance to our neighbors. I haven't had this much fun in quite a while! Seeing our new friends gathered, all dressed to the nines in their derby finest, eating, drinking, and having a ball, was the absolute best! I am so glad we have had to opportunity to meet these guys, and that they helped make this party such a blast!
