Down on the farm...

Although Grace's actual birthday is not until Tuesday, yesterday we celebrated with her long awaited Old McDonald Birthday Party! The weather was just right - in the 70's and windy - just perfect for cooling off red-cheeked kiddos who could only be slowed down for a second to eat a bite of cake and ice cream. Thank you to all of you who came and made Grace's 2nd Birthday so special!!!

Okay, get ready, we've got LOTS of pictures to share (I guess we're camera friendly around here 'cause we ended up with over 300 photos)! We also have a slideshow with more photos so if you'd like to see that shoot me a message with your email and I'll forward it to you.

Little Pumpkin so excited 'cause it's FINALLY the day to go to the farm! Here we are! Who knew farms had such cool playgrounds? Higher, higher! Off to explore with Mimi A friendly face Even Noonie got in on the action Chasing the chickens was Grace's favorite activity! Taking a break from the chickens to pet a baby goat (Baby Hudson must have liked the goat too 'cause he was kicking up a storm in mama's belly during all this). Cousin Jade Madeline Cousin Logan Michelle & Maye Curious Beau hiding among the animals :) Sweet baby deer Baby Preston checking things out Madeline & Amelia having fun It's a PIG, Mama!!! Everyone getting in on the feeding frenzy Llama, Llama Red Pajama (or is it an alpaca? Need to study up on my farm animals!) Thank you Brown's for making the 2-hr trek to come to Grace's party! We loved having you and getting to meet baby Allie in person!!! Hesitantly leaving the petting area for the promise of cake The masterpiece! I'm so excited how the cake turned out!!! Everyone's singing just for me!! Make a wish! A little taste test With hungry kiddos, you gotta move fast! (Thanks, Michelle!) The cake was Y-U-M-M-Y!!! Opening up presents takes concentration! Thank you all for the generous presents!! A special thank you to Carson & Preston for knowing how much Grace wanted to see an elephant at the farm :) I can't believe you adopted an elephant from a sanctuary in Grace's name - that is so, so sweet! She's going to have lots of fun learning about Miss Bets! Sweetest card! Mememaw & Aunt Marilyn checking out all the action Grace's 3 grandpas And we're off for a ride in the Moo Moo Choo Choo Hayden's not sure what to think of it I like the view from up here, Papa A.J.! And after a fun-filled day it's time to pack up and go home! Thank you all for coming to Grace's 2nd Birthday! Thank you God for the beautiful weather and for an amazing 2nd year in Grace's life!

Cute pics. Grace Looks like she had the best time. Love her outfit! And the cake, it's amazing....Who did it?

Thanks, Julie! We loved having you guys there and I'm so happy Preston got to swing in the big swing for the first time at the farm!!

Hey, Courtney, Grace did have a blast! Alyson of A Piece of Cake made the cake. She's the best, we love her! She made our wedding cake and all cakes since!

Oh my! You all had so much fun! Wish we were there, but know that we were in spirit! I'm so happy Grace will get to learn about Miss Bets! I knew how much she wanted her elephant! I love the pictures! You have a bunch of memories to savor and reflect on when Grace is older! Love you guys so much!

Oh my, I love a good party - how cute...OK< I must know...(vendors) - the banner, the stickers, the bows, the outfit and the cake is wonderful, what a special day!!!

Jessica said...

Hi, Amanda,
Thanks for stopping by!

The banner and stickers came from Birthday in a Box (

The bows I purchased locally, but I bought the "2" snap clips that make the center of the bows on etsy from Details Shop and just had my bow lady put them in the middle of the bow, where the traditional knot goes. They are removable, so Grace can wear the bows afterwards too :)

The outfit I purchased from My Little Fairytales on ebay

And the cake came from our favorite local cake lady, Alyson of A Piece of Cake - no website :(

On a personal note, I will say that the kids had SO MUCH FUN at the farm - amazing how animals can be so fun for kids and adults of all ages! Have fun!
