A Horse of Course

Here are a few photos of Olivia’s 8th birthday party.  We even had a guest visit from Flat Stanley.

You can only do so much with a horse theme on a cake.

Keeping a group of 10 kids fed can take several sets of hands!

The birthday princess (she wore that tiara all day, until the cowboy hat was unwrapped.)

I LOVE this kid!   He has the sweetest southern accent in the world and acts more grown up than most adults I know.

Poor Dylan…it’s hard being the only boy at the party.

The happy cowgirl!

The new horse, “Princess”.

Flat Stanley and DaCoach.

These kids are like little rubber bands!!  I thought we’d never get finished with Twister!

Pretty little sister….

As you can see, I don’t do a lot of bells and whistles for birthday parties.   We cooked hotdogs on the grill, played twister and corn hole and just let them be kids.   I had a couple of crafts ready, but since the weather was so nice, and everyone was having a good time playing, I sent the crafts home in the goodie bags.  It was a great day!

Pin It!


  1. Looks like a wonderful day! We always keep parties simple too. The kids make their own fun! :-)


Thank you for stopping by!
