A FARM PARTY REVEALED

On Saturday our little Bear turned 3 years old. Although he is now adamant that he does not want to be 3 and still wants to be 2 thank you very much!

The party went fantastically well.
Here are a few (well, more than a few) photos of the day….
Please excuse while I completely over indulge…..

Some food pics….
Flowers (which I think are canola?) were sneakily picked growing along the side of the road!

The cake…

The decorations…

The fun extras…

The entertainment…
My Dad (whose own farm started Bear’s love of all things farm) organised an amazingly generous gift of a real live animal farm in our front yard! I’m not normally someone who likes to pay people for children’s entertainment – in fact I’m a little against it, but, why look a gift horse in the mouth (excuse the pun!) when the kids will absolutely love it!! It just made the party!

It also meant that apart from a little game of pin the tail on the cow, the application of some ‘farm animal’ tattoos and the blowing of some bubbles, I didn’t have to organise any other activities!

Huge thanks to my talented sister Clare for creating the cow and applying lots of tattoos (among many other things on the day!)

To top it all off, there was even a very special Daddy & daughter fiddle duet!
A new song her violin teacher had taught her just 3 days prior had quite the ‘hoedown’ feel, so Goose & her Dad gave us all a fantastic little toe-tapping concert, along with a solo of ‘Happy Birthday’.  Brought tears to her proud Dad’s eyes :)

Most important thing of all was that the little (now “big”) birthday boy had fun!

And of course, for this ‘party Mum’, so did I!
