Ranger Kyler’s birthday party
A few months ago I found old movies on DVD from the thrift store. One was a bunch of old Lone Ranger episodes. The kids were hooked. So naturally, Kyler ended up with a Lone Ranger party this year. I’m actually finding it a delightful challenge to pick a theme and plan a party that doesn’t blow the bank (like $250 to rent Jump Planet!) and that is plain old fashioned fun.
My sister had her baby last week so my planning had been minimal but we still pulled off a super fun day at a gorgeous local park
The kids were instructed on the Lone Ranger’s job of bringing justice to the Wild West, they were informed that a bank robber bandit was loose in the park (Daddy) and they need to find him. So they headed out with hats and horses gallivanting around the park.
Doesn’t he look bad? (grin)
It was a great day for this little man and although he got a bee sting and his eye is now mostly swollen shut, I’d say it was just about perfect. We’re getting the hang of this birthday thing…two years ago we decided that we wanted birthday’s to be a bigger deal and to take the focus of Christmas off the gifts and focus on the Gift and on blessing others. We also talked about how having a large family we needed to be intentional about celebrating the uniqueness of each person in our family. While we don’t have it figured out, it’s sure fun learning!
