As promised here are a few pics from the party. It ended up being too hot to stay outside for too long but the kids got to play in the bard (in the picture, behind the kids) for a little bit. We had hid some little plastic animals in the hay and they got to look through the hay for those and run around for a bit. They were really good when we came inside and played really well. The playroom was still a mess at the end of it but that is part of the whole party thing, isn't it?
This is the cow cake, isn't it cute? I had so much fun with this one. I found the directions for it on www.familyfun.com. That is actually where I found most of the ideas for the party.
I made Wanted Posters for the kids to take home. I had them printed out and stamped ahead of time and then when the kids arrived I took each of their pictures. When they were playing, later on, I printed them out and attached them to the posters.
It is supper time here now so I am going to see what I can find to eat. Joe is away this week and I find it hard/boring thinking up meals for just the kids and I. Anyone have any good ideas?
