The Cutest Cowboy

What a fun weekend we had!  The weather was a bit cool, but the sun was shining and the sky was beautiful.  Our nephew Jallen's 3 yr. old birthday party was Saturday, and it was so much fun.  My  sister-in-law Gina is quite the expert at party planning and pulling it off in a big way.  This time she threw an adorable cowboy party, complete with pony rides and different stations for the kids to go to so they could earn their "gold," (pennies), followed by a General Store where they got to spend it at the end.  We had a great time...I think the kids loved it too!

 


Jallen thought he was so clever getting an early swipe of the frosting!  He loved it!

Kevin was manning my station while I was shooting photos.  Mr. Tough Guy. :)
 
My friend Kristin made a nice "Vanna" at the 'Spin and Win'!

Our niece Braelyn, 5 months younger than her cousin Jallen, also enjoyed the festivities.

I love this pony.  I spent a lot of time fascinated by his up close and personal face!


My cute friend Carmel - such a good sport!

My sister-in-law Barbie was the official 'brander' giving the kids "Jesus Loves Me" tattoos.


What a cute camera man!

All the party guests came decked out in their cowboy/girl best.  These two are checking out the goods at the "General Store."





My brother-in-law Chad, Jallen's dad, treated our other nephew Jaxon to his second pony ride of the day.

Of course these two ended the day with an entertaining karaoke show.  "He's got the whole world in His hands!" Some pretty cute rock stars, for sure.




Super cute cake!

Cowgirl + Cowboy = Lots of love!

My lovely sisters-in-law.  Great job Gina!  Such a fun way to love and celebrate Jallen.

Happy Birthday Jallen!  Have fun being 3...we love you!
