A Barnyard Party











T was invited to a preschool friend's birthday party last Saturday. It said that siblings were welcome, so I brought J along, too. I knew he'd like seeing all of the animals. He made quick friends with 2 other boys at the party. There were lots of animals brought to the party for the kids to see. J got to ride the pony 4 times!! T rode it once and that was enough for him. He liked being with the smaller animals. There were: 2 ponies, a goat (who kept trying to get at the snack table), a sheep, 2 bunnies, 3 ducks, a rooster, and a pig. The kids all got cowboy hats and bananas. J wore his all day! It was a fun party, and I have to say that this mom went all out. It seems a lot of parents pull out all of the stops for some of these parties! I remember having friends over for simple games and cake & ice cream, and I was happy with that! Times have certainly changed.

I want to know where I can rent a pony for the day. Daniel would love it. D's party was playing with a colored parachute and air hockey finishing off with a treasure hunt for thier goody bags and pizza. I guess I don't know how to give a party either.

J -- it is this woman's side business: bringing her animals to parties. Daniel's party sounds great. I just think a lot of parents go a little overboard these days. It makes for a lot of unrealistic expectations for many kids. Don't get me wrong, the party was fun, but it was A LOT.

Oh my gosh! I want to go to that party! I just don't want my kids to think that's what they can have too. I'm a big fan of backyard pinata parties.

It was so fun bouncing with you yesterday. I am always surprised to see your kids in person - they are so much taller than in these photos!
