Barnyard Bash Birthday Party

I can't believe Eve turns twelve on Monday. Where has the time gone? Tomorrow we get to embarrass her at her Primary Graduation during closing exercises in Primary. Today I'll share what she did for her birthday party yesterday. We started by giving them all rides on our poor old horse, Boxcar.
Then we had fun tossing chicken eggs until one team was left with an unbroken egg. That was very fun . . .
. . .but also hazardous.
The day was pretty chilly so we went inside to warm up by smashing balloons while Michael Martin Murphy's western ballads played from the CD player. Each person blew up two balloons, tied one to each ankle, and then tried to pop everyone else's balloons without getting their own popped.
Everyone got hot again so we headed back outside to break pinatas.
Then the mandatory blowing of the candles followed along with opening of presents. We had a great group - most of Eve's Primary class and several cousins.

That looks like so much fun. It is so nice seeing kids have real, honest to goodness, normal, clean, fun.
