Weekend Wrap Up


weekend wrap up - tractor party style!!
whew - we had one awesome, awesome weekend.
i mean does this kid look ready to party or what?  lol.
let's start with friday.  henry had his two year check up which i could only get scheduled for the smack dab middle of the day.  so i worked from home that day (yes, i love my job!).
we slept in, ate breakfast at home, played a bit, got stuff ready for the party and managed to squeeze in a doctor's appointment too.
i have one happy and healthy 30 pound two year old!  blessed.
so we celebrated with ice cream.
redneck style on the back of papa's truck in the parking lot.  ha.
and many many gator rides around the yard.
later friday night i joined katie for the miranda lambert and dierks bentley concert!
it was SO much fun!
a band called Jukebox Mafia played too and they MIGHT just be my new obsession.
we had a blast.  thank you katie for inviting me!!
saturday morning it was Tractor Party GO TIME!
danielle and tate were in town and jon took the day off to help.
we busted our butts and i have to say - i think we threw a pretty awesome tractor birthday party!
i got all of these printables online for free!  holla.  we have tractor tires (chocolate donuts), haystacks (rice crispy treats), mud pies (brownies) and chicken feed (chex mix).
and the cake we made.  well, bought just a white cake with green trim from IGA.  the "dirt" is crushed up oreo and the we added the tractor, fence, pig, haystacks and candle.  easy and cheap!
and the bounce house water slide was a HUGE HIT!!
but truly the only thing that mattered was how happy the birthday boy was.
and i think he was EXTREMELY happy :)
i mean that smile.  love it!
thank you so so much to everyone who came to the birthday party and for all the help we got.
we appreciate it SO SO much!
now - we need a bigger house for all of these tractors....  and yes that barn is full, two tractors deep.
sunday was recovery day.  breakfast at ck with papa and then we had a baby shower to go to.
we finished off the night with dq and a dirt road truck ride where papa taught stella the farmer wave.
everyone was in bed by 9:30 last night.  AMEN!
