A colony of flamingos...

The last of the Josie birthday celebrations happened Tuesday evening with my extended family.





I had hinted a few weeks ago on this post, that Josie would be receiving a cowgirl vest as part of her birthday presents. 

There was definitely a horse theme this year.


Chris and I  managed to surprise Josie with a horse tire swing from the Tractor Supply Company. 

 Grandpa was even a good sport and wore Chris's grass skirt and lovely straw hat all evening.  

Using Viv's pom pom flamingo as inspiration, my mother made a beautiful cake and created a colony of flamingos. 


Happy 6th Birthday, Josie! 

I can't wait to see what new milestones and memories we make together this year!

What a sweet party. I want a ride on that swing. We had one at my parents for the kids and it was so much fun. The cake turned out fabulous. A cowgirl and her flock of flamingo's I think they made a movie out of that once...Happy Day Josie...smiles...Renee

I am in awe. That horse swing is amazing as is that cake with the flamingos! Josie looks fab in her cow girl outfit, it was such a find, as are those pasture pals! She is such a joyous 6 year old!

What a fun party, and such great memories you are creating, Kim! I love the photo of Josie and Grandpa, that is just too cute! And your mom did an awesome job on the cake! I thought of you the other day when I shopped at the Dollar Tree, and got a ton of tropical inspired decor for our "tiki-tacky" boat!!!
