The Kentucky Derby has come and gone but it still remains one of my favorite events ever since we started going to our friend's party. The difficult part about the Kentucky Derby in Portland is this time of year is so very hit or miss when it comes to outdoor garden parties. Even the best hat would droop on most spring days here. But we always get a least a few sun breaks to run around, drink homemade mint juleps, nibble on bbq and watch the kids play. That may be my favorite part of this yearly get together. The kids know very little about the tradition or the horses or even why everyone is wearing a crazy hat, but they have so much fun with what they have.
