Cowboy Western 3rd Birthday Party

Warning: Picture overload.

July 16, we celebrated Lucy's and Emma's 3rd birthday with a cowboy farm party at my parent's house!

At the front of the house, there was a sign saying cowboy up with bandanas and sheriff badges.

On the gate, I hung little bwanted signs of the girls!

I made wanted signs for all the kiddos who attended the party.
The Eatin' Table.
I set up hay bales for seating
The Saloon.
The Watering Trough
The Chuck Wagon aka Food Table.

We had games spread out all over the yard. Here is Rope the Cow.

The kids getting ready to feed the horses apples and carrots!

The Chuck Wagon full of food. We kept it very simple and I ordered sandwiches from the Walmart deli, I highly recommend! We also served pasta salad, bean and corn dip, chips and watermelon.

Lucy and her cowboy hat.

Grant getting ready to toss some horseshoes.
More sack racing.
Bobbing for apples again. I think they liked playing in the water.
Getting ready for another sack race. We started out with two "sacks". We had to go round up three more so all the kids could race.

I have a friend who has an Etsy shop and she made a bunch of western mustaches.

Our party ended with the pinata.

I think it was a fun party full of fun activities but I can guarantee next year Lucy's getting a Chuck E Cheese party where I just show up with a cake. I was exhausted after the party was over!

In case you haven't seen enough pictures here are some more.
Me and my mama.
Laura, Peggy and Poppa Roy.
Silly Bapaw, Taylor, and Cookie.

The girls ended the night with some Cheetos. This is the only picture I have of the two together. It was the end of the night. They are both sweaty and missing their bows!
Thank you to everyone who made it out to the party. It always means so much to me that people would give up a Saturday night to celebrate our girls!
Can you believe I have an (almost) Three year old? Me either!

I am so sad that we missed the party. I promise Lila would have much rather been playing with the girls than sick on the couch.

It looks like everyone had a lot of fun! I love Lila's "Wanted" sign. Very cute idea!


It was a fabulously fun party. The work and creativity you put into it, Mary, was very much appreciated by all. We loved every minute of it!
