Who needs Mint Juleps when you have wine?

Saturday, May 3, 2014 was the one and only Kentucky Derby.  In true Kentucky Derby fashion, Rolex spent this weekend outside enjoying the beautiful weather! We dressed in pastels and I sported a wide-brimmed sun hat.  We did not, however, enjoy Mint Juleps - which is the signature drink of the Kentucky Derby.  We were in Napa on derby day, so we enjoyed wine instead! 
Rod and I visited Napa with some very good friends of ours (hi Linda, Karsten & little Hugo!) and their adorable little man.  Their son is only a few weeks older than Henry, so they "played" together while we picnicked!
Since it was a family trip, we focused less on the wine tasting and more on picnicking, enjoying the weather, and exploring the castle at Castello di Amorosa.  If you recall, we visited the castle one other time (pre-Henry), you can read about it here.  We love this place!


Hugo and Henry!
