Andrew's cowboy party

Andrew's cowboy birthday party was a huge success. Being that this was his first ever friend party I went all out. He had been very firm on the cowboy idea. I think this was just so he had a good excuse to wear his cowboy hat. Although it poured rain all day which put an end to all our out door games we had a ton of fun inside.

First all the kids decorated their very own paper bag vest. I know very fancy.

They all tried to hit the pinata. We didn't have a blindfold so they all closed their eyes tight. I was surprised how honest all the kids were.

Next their was a visit from the infamous El Guapo. He tried to steal all the presents so the kids were made sheriffs so they could fight el Guapo in a shootout. Anjuli made the el Guapo poster for me. Didn't she do an awesome job. Zac and I had way too much fun burning the corners.

Andrew blew out his candles.

He ate and enjoyed his cupcake.

Then a boy from church came and did balloon animals for all the kids. He was amazingly good and so patient with the kids and he is only twelve! We were lucky he could make it to the party.

I think by this point Andrew was on a serious chocolate kick. Here he is with his octopus balloon. He has been wanting one forever and was so excited to finally have Christian make him one.
