Jake's Birthday Party

We had Jake's 5th birthday at Papa Simpson's Farm in Arcadia yesterday. We lucked out with warm weather and had a SUPER great time! We'd been to the farm several times but this was our first birthday party there. Can't say enough about how good it was! A special thank you to my mom who took pictures of the entire party. Thank you, Mom!

The invite
Even Daddy dressed up for our cowboy theme:)!
My sweet man riding the trailer down to the farm
The kids got to hold chicks, goats, feed calves, milk a cow, feed cows and sheep, ride ponies, feed pigs, chase goats, etc. You'd rather not see all those pictures so I narrowed them down to a few.
Feeding the calves
Picking pumpkins out of the pumpkin patch
Landry Grace always with an accessory in her hand.....
Riding the cow train!
Digging for prizes in the corn dig
And Pinterest has me getting creative!
Used slim jims for cow tails, chex mix for chicken feed, got haystacks recipe off internet, and then there were pigs in a blanket
Used oatmeal cream pies and starcrunches for cow patties
Party Table
Found these cute boot cups on Birthday Express for the party favors
Blowing out his candles
What a fun party! Wish I could be longer and tell you what Jake means to our family. He is such a blessing to us all. But in the meantime he is READY for me to take him to the movies! SO I'm off. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
