On Saturday one of my long-time aspirations came to fruition, and we hosted our first Kentucky Derby party.

There was plenty of food, good friends, and lots of laughs.

There were also mint juleps

And of course, hats

A good time was had by all, I think.

I got to lounge around this morning, and was treated to our Mothers Day traditional breakfast in bed:  cinnamon rolls.

We decided to go to the zoo around midafternoon (we renewed our membership this year, so admission was free).  It was great – good zoo weather, apparently, because many of the animals who are usually asleep or hiding from the blazing sun were out and about.  We saw the cougar, the coyotes, and the jaguar all on the move, which was very cool.

But the best part of the day came after we got home, when the boys were playing together. Is there anything better than giggling children?

I’m a lucky lucky mama.
