I am sorry but my camera is dying. It is finally starting to go after it was dropped three years ago at Jade's first birthday. It is somewhat fitting that it would fire off its death knell at Lucas' first. So I apologize for some blurry photos in this post.
Here are the salvageable photos...
Lucas before the party on his new favorite toy...a Power Wheels Kawasaki. Thanks Grandpa!
The rocking horse hanging out before party time.
Brisket, beans and cornbread, the perfect meal for a lil' cowboy. These photos were taken in the dining room where there is less available light. Can you tell in the foreground I traced horse images and wrote in the menu item?
We ate off of pie tins and I used rolled dishtowels for napkins tied in raffia.
Not pictured were the sasparella and lemonade. ;)
I also didn't get a good photo of the birthday boy and the cake - a Texas sheet cake - *sigh*
After cake we opened presents. Lucas got some awesome clothes, a new "vintage" top, the Kawasaki power wheels, a toy helicopter and the rocking horse. Thank you all!
After presents I spread some kraft paper out on the coffee table and gave the guests their favors...
... tubes of colored pencils.
The kids all went to town coloring, giving the adults a chance to chat.
Thank you all for visiting the cowboy party...Happy Trails!
