Read our Party Planning post here first!
Jenna and I both hit the ground running. Actually, started the night before when we went grocery shopping for the birthday party and ended up not getting home until 1:00AM! Time can always get away from us when we are shopping. We don’t mean for it to happen, but we just have so much fun together. Anyway, between getting food ready, last minute errands, to finally decorating for the birthday party we were busy. Plus fitting a gooooooddddd nap in for the kids so they weren’t grouchy for their party was HIGH on the to-do list.
If you don’t know, our babies that just turned 3 were born two hours apart on June 18th. Gage, my son’s (Nicole) birthday is June 30th. Since we have been so busy this year, we decided to have a big combination birthday party for all the kids. It went so well, we might just have to do it year after year (or until they get “too big”).
To begin planning we picked a Pirate Theme. We knew we were going to rent our water park in our hometown for part of the birthday so whatever theme we chose needed to go along with water. We both had beach theme birthdays in the past so we thought this would be fun and colorful as well. We went with black, red, and turquoise (pink and green came into the play later on).
On one of Jenna’s trips to the city, she found cute treasure map plates and tablecloths, red and turquoise cups, black and red polka dot napkins, and a treasure chest piñata. Locally, I found red, black, and turquoise striped dinner plates, serving dishes and table cloths.

My three year old Spencer loves anything to do with farm animals, so when the rodeo came to town we knew he would love it! We put our boots on and Spencer put on his straw hat with the turkey feather in the side. Then we had Stella go over to her CiCi and Poppy’s house because taking her along would have been a rodeo in itself- she is a busy little thing! We got there early because Stanton (my husband) had some kids from his school working the concession stand and he had to supervise, but Spencer thought the trucks and tractors prepping the arena were pretty cool too! From the opening ceremonies to the last ride of the night my little cowboy was in hog heaven- singing the National Anthem, cheering, oohing and ahhhing, and soaking up every single moment of the rodeo. Someone even brought their horse up from the trailer for Spence to ride; talk about pure excitement! At the end of the night Spencer looked up at me and asked “Can we come to the rodeo in morrow morning?”, and he was disappointed when I told him it was over. We buckled up our buckaroo and no more than a mile away from the arena he was fast asleep, dreaming about bulls and broncs I’m sure! Ha!We will definitely be going to the rodeo next year y’all!
