Barnyard Birthday Bash for Two!

We were lucky enough to help celebrate Madison turning three and lil bro Tyler turning 1 recently. (hopefully I can still say recently since I am WAY behind on blogging) Well, Miss Shelby outdid herself with a backyard farm themed party (check it out) like out of a magazine...complete with petting zoo, bouncy house, bubbles, and tables and decorations cuter than a...I dont know, a pig in mud?

Alex really LOVED the petting zoo. Normally he isn't quite into them but this one was really good (which Shelby knew and was why she booked them). They have mostly babies... bunnies, goats, chickens, and even the cutest lil piggie! Alex was so intrigued.

chasing the piggie
getting a close look at those bunnies. he may or may not have been poking them in the eye. lets hope and pray not.

cant believe I let him do this considering its milk. didnt think twice at the time. but all was fine and he loved helping!
Ellie was scared and clung tight to daddy. but did like to point at the bunny. she has been in to pointing at oh, only, everything.

all the "babies", couldn't believe how well this one went!
The girls ganging up on Evan ;) too funny

Happy Birthday sweet friends!
I want to add this because it was a big deal- after the party I hit 35 up to Dallas to celebrate my sweet long time friend Vaughanie's 30th Birthday with a girls night! It was my first night away from miss Ellie! We BOTH did great and I am so glad that I went! Ellie was a champ for Daddy and even slept through the night. I got to see some very special girls and get in some all important mommy girl talk into the wee hours of the night. I didn't take any pictures but here is one I stole that I love.
Vaughanie you are so beautiful and getting more beautiful with every year. It was SO fun to celebrate with you!
