Potato Sack Races

The potato sack races were AWESOME! The kids were so darn cute and the guys...well they were downright hilarious! Belly laughs all around, especially from the kids :)
Such good sports! Such good guys! Such fun times!




Pioneer Dress-up Relay

The field games at Annabelle's party were hilarious, adorable, and one of my favorite parts of the whole day! We kicked it off with a fun dress-up relay, pioneer clothing purchased for a small price at DI :) The kids loved it!

 Melody, Stockton, and Rusty didn't participate in the relay, but they sure were darling hanging out and walking around :)
I don't know what it is about seeing your little kids dressed up as pioneers, but it is so fun and cute! The kids were pretty funny trying to run in those boots as well! :) I think we took a zillion pictures!

Annabelle's Pioneer Party!

Annabelle was SO excited for her big birthday party! When she told me she wanted to have a pioneer-themed birthday party, I stressed. I had no clue what we were going to do. I brainstormed during phone calls, pulled ideas from Pinterest, and took a few trips down to "This is the Place Heritage Park" for some visual inspiration. When all was said and done, I was so happy with her choice! The party was a blast, and she had a wonderful time--Success!

We had lunch and opened presents in the little "Party House" at Wheeler Farm. This little log cabin, though small, was perfect

We kept the table decor pretty simple with wildflowers and pictures of the birthday girl!

We had cowbot hats for the boys and aprons for the girls--Thanks MIMI!!!

Seeing everyone arrive in their cute pioneer clothes was one of the highlights :) My parents had us all laughing--I LOVED it!

After everyone arrived and got all dressed up in their hats, bandanas, and aprons, we headed over to the grass for some old fashioned field games!
