Olivia's Barnyard Birthday Party!

Because of Nicholas's upcoming surgery, we had Olivia's birthday party early on Sunday, April 28th. Unfortunately, the rain poured down that day and at that particular time it was even thunderstorming. So we were hoping someone would show up and prepared for no one to as the weather was BAD. We decided to go ahead with the party as there was literally no other time to do it. We went with our rain boots and a sense of humor!! (Double sense of humor since I realized as we were heading out the door that Leo had no rain boots, coat, or hat...he borrowed Olivia's!) Too tired to comment on each photo, but I think they tell the story pretty well!

Olivia wanted to "set the tables," so I said to go for it! Note the odd arrangements!

Look at my big boy sitting on the bench by himself!

My friend Jennifer's little one, Mary Grace, loved using her rain gear!

The Barnyard staff was fantastic, and brought all the baby animals into the barn for the kids to pet, feed, and play with. Because we didn't get to feed the catfish, go on a boat ride, feed the bigger animals, or ride the pony, they gave each child a pass to come back for free on another day!

Poor Leo in Olivia's jacket! Everyone got a good laugh at that!

Pretty good turn out for the terrible weather!

Brushing the pony.

Hopping in the puddles!

Time for sugar!


  1. Looks like a fun party! Reminds me of my birthday party at the zoo when I was 5 or 6 :) Great to see some pictures of you too ... you look fantastic!

  2. It looks like the turnout was great! I'm impressed since it was such a rainy day. It looks like everyone had a great time with all the baby animals, too!

  3. Happy Birthday, Olivia! Three is a big year!!
