A busy weekend

The Birthday Boy JACKSON

After a wedding on Saturday (More to follow on the wedding) , we pulled together my grandson Jacksons 7th birthday. It was not without advance planning as it had to be a quick turnaround. Thanks to lots of helpers, the barn was transformed in time for the party. We took our color cues from the striped awning fabric for the lanterns.
The lemonade stand was set up for the children to help themselves using some of my collection of boot glasses

The barbeque crew handling the burgers and dogs

Jacksons ice cream parlour.
I made the canopy. Poppa Eddie and Grandpa Dave installed on Sunday morning.
The kids had the most fun dishing it up themselves.

Cupcakes with"J" flags. Made by Gramma Recipe was from the smitten kitchen blog. Pretty yummy if I do say so myself.
Favors made by Mom. Dad and Jackson cut the sticks on Grandpa Sehons property

The petting zoo was a big hit. The animals were so tame they just rested in your hand

Time to blow out the candle
