It was birthday time again in our house (and man, it seems to come around a lot quicker now that we have three kiddos!).....
Toby turned 8!
I'll save you from hearing the same old.... "how is he possibly this old? where does the time go? blah blah blah" line, but I have to say that 8 feels big. This little man has grown up so much in the past year, and has amazed me, and surprised me, so many times! He's a sweet, sensitive soul who picks up on the emotions of everyone around him, and sometimes that can be hard on a little guy! He also happens to have an excellent sense of humour, and an easy, infectious giggle! We love him to bits, and are so lucky that he's part of our family!
When he suggested we have an outlaw party in our little barn, I was in!
It was the perfect idea!!
We feel so, so lucky to have this little property in Point Roberts, WA, and are thoroughly enjoying every minute of downtime spent there as a family :). The little barn is perfect in every way, and I had so much fun decorating it for the party!
I kept it pretty simple! A scavenger hunt, some zip-lining (we have a little zip line from Amazon, and it's a whole pile of fun!), roasting marshmallows and making s'mores around a campfire, and a 'dirt and worms' birthday cake (Toby's specific request).
No fuss, just a bunch of kids running around on a beautiful sunny day having fun!
Ok, so the one thing I did spend a few evenings on was these WANTED posters :) I found pics of each little outlaw, and used PicMonkey to edit them and make them look old/western. I had them printed at my local print shop, and they turned out so well!
The birthday Outlaw himself ;) Looking oh so seriously 'outlaw-ish'.
My tiniest outlaw ;) (moments before he decided it would be a good idea to take a large bite of a foil-covered chocolate gold coin .... wrapper and all!)
Let's just say it was a rough night!
It was the perfect sunny day, and the little outlaws seemed to enjoy themselves!
Thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate our biggest little man!
