I have three summer kids. One has a birthday in June and the other two in August. So, the summers are fun filled birthday fun. Little Cowpoke's birthday is first. He turned 5!!! I can't believe it. Time sure flies by so quickly. For Little Cowpoke's birthday, he chose to have a Star Wars themed party. So, this is what I came up with for his cake! At first I was going to make the icing black....but then I really thought about it, and that wouldn't have been so smart! Kids+black frosting=disaster! I LOVE Darth and his light saber candle! When Little Cowpoke saw that he freaked out!! My Mom came to visit for the first few weeks in June and she helped me with the stars and the words. I made the totally awesome light sabers!!! ha ha ha ha! There is one happy Star Wars birthday boy. He wore a ribbon on his shirt with a picture of Yoda that said, "May the force be with you!" That is Little Cowpoke's Darth Pinata! He was really excited about it!
I invited some friends from school, but of coarse none of them came. I am "new" in town so nobody ever comes to my kids' birthday parties. But his cousins and Grandparents came and that is all that matters! And my friend came and brought her daughter! The kids all went swimming and then we had hot dogs and potato salad! Then it was present time! My friend got him a super cool Darth light saber!! Let me tell you he was sooooo excited about this! He plays with it everyday!! Before Big Cowpoke went to his Dad's for the summer he picked out this HUGE water gun for his little brother. Little Cowpoke was SOOOO excited for the extra huge water gun! He then got this super cool card from his cousins! It played the "Darth" song and had a light saber that lit up!! So COOL! It was a hit with all the kids. My horrid group shot! I don't think anybody is looking at the camera!! ha ha ha! Cowpokette wasn't really walking really well at this point! She was getting there!! Karen, from The Rocking Pony, mad her the super cute dress she is wearing!! I love that lady! The lit candles! The lit candles with Little Cowpoke and his light saber! Blowing out the candles!!! We then moved outside to do the Darth Pinata. There was a really fantastic sunset! And Uncle Shannon did a great job of holding the pinata! You see my father in law over there on the right? You see his shirt? Yeah...that is sweat...it was really that hot and humid and nasty outside. He did just come from the barn and playing with one of the colts, but still, it was nasty humid out! What was left of the Darth Pinata! Perfect!!! Then Little Cowpoke got the Green Machine, from me and Mr. Cowboy! These are the coolest toys EVER! They actually can drift!! The boys played with them at a friends house and loved them! They are the coolest big wheel ever! And yes, they fit kids of all sizes! Happy Birthday Little Cowpoke!
