I love the cool breeze. I love the way the air smells. I love the amazing colors of the leaves. I love that I can wear my cardigans, hoodies and boots. I love to drink a hot cup of coffee outside. I love roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. I love going on walks with the kids and collecting leaves. I love that I can actually enjoy being outside!
We had an incredible taste of Fall weather this weekend while away on a mini family vacation and I am one excited, giddy girl!
We got to take the kids to an indoor water park for the weekend and it was such a blast! We splashed in the water, played glow in dark mini golf, watched a pet show and lots more. But the best part about the whole weekend was simply that we had a whole weekend to just enjoy one another; no work, just PLAY!
And now onto some Cowboy Birthday Party fun! My son wanted a cowboy party for his 5th birthday so I went on a search for some cowboy hats and such because we do not have those things lying around our house. We are not a cowboy family but man, did we have fun at this party!
We had cake, cupcakes, and ice cream. I scooped the ice cream into cupcake liners placed in a muffin tin the night before. Then I placed them in the freezer and when it was time for the party, we had individual servings of ice cream ready to be placed on plates!
There was a stack of bandannas on the table, serving as a center piece and party favors too.
I made signs out of poster boards, markers and stamp pads and posted them various places around the party.
We had the big barrel awaiting to be filled with birthday presents. My sister in law came through big time and loaned us the barrel, some cute cowgirl hats for the ladies to wear, two inflatable horses, and an awesome cowboy costume that my father in law ended up sporting for the party. He was a big hit with the kids but I am afraid I may get in trouble if I share that photo with you!
It was such a fun day!
