Birthday Hoedown

Nearly 2 dozen little cowpokes and their families joined us for Graham's big celebration.

I made some cowboy beanbags, and the big kids helped the little kids knock down a pyramid of empty cans. And how many people have a coin operated horse and an old school arcade gun game in the basement? It's like Jim had been preparing for this party for the last 10 years.

Thanks to the Harters for sharing their yard. Aren't they adorable?

The apple cider was a delicious addition.

But Buster Brown was the real hit of the party... Graham didn't know about this special surprise until the trailer pulled up on Hudson Street.

Graham was eager to give "his boy" some love. (And check out the boots that came from Aunt Betsy! So cute!)

But it wasn't until after he had his cake that he was willing to actually get in the saddle. (This cowboy has priorities!)

Thanks to Jamie Tirbs and her family for making the trip into town.

Here's some video from the special day:


  1. Looks like so much fun!! You guy throw and awesome party for the little guy (who is know!).

  2. Those are some fine lookin' fillies at the cider press.
    Happy birthday to the cutest little cowboy.
