I think that picture says it all. Sawyer’s birthday party was definitely a success. Everyone had lots of fun, and he didn’t cry- perfect! We had barbecue, lots of delicious food, cake and a soft serve ice cream machine, corn hole, a throwing/tarp game I made that you’ll see pictures of, and lots of family and friends there to enjoy. It rained a little on our parade but nobody let that slow them down and it was the perfect outdoor first birthday party! Sawyer’s favorite parts were the cake and a little lawn mower that my brother gave him. He has played with that thing for hours it seems like!
This tarp game was so quick and easy to make, and provided two hours of entertainment for the kids and adults alike. I just traced cookie sheets and cut around them, it could have looked a lot prettier but it served it’s purpose. We hung it from two trees and put a big bucket with a bunch of different kinds of balls next to it. The scores were pretty arbitrary and it turns out the top middle one should have been worth the most, but it was really fun watching the kids try and make any of the holes, and see the men get competitive and creative trying to beat each other.
Happy 1st birthday Sawyer!!!
