Kentucky Derby Party: 2011

Yesterday, we attended the annual Kentucky Derby party in Greenland, NH.  It was a lot of fun, but we admittedly no longer go crazy with our hats to win.  We figure we did that enough and now we let the “new” people win.   I picked up my nice read hat for $3.00 and Nils went without a hat, but managed to put on the blue one we had from 2009.   I’ll try and dig up photos from our first year, where I had this impressive “cake” looking hat.

One of the winners – $10 bet got her $230!  17/1
Err.. this guy bet on EVERY horse to guarantee a win!  Fool! 🙂

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
