Old Cowtown Birthday


I just don't know if anything is as beautiful as a perfect, colorful autumn day.  Even better?  When that day is spent in a scenic park, with trees and historic buildings, and lots of smiling kids and parents.  

And a happy birthday girl.



It turns out fairies are lovely and all, but it's a lot of fun to gather with your buddies for a little "steer" ropin' and schoolyard games, a wagon ride, cake and sarsparilla.  My cowgirl was a very happy birthday girl.  Yee haw!  [By the way, her dress is by Three Giggly Girls, which I purchased at the Kansas Barn Sale.  The oversized hat came from Party City.]

Happy November!

    1. It takes forever for the leaves to start to turn here. Remember, Kansas isn't exactly known for its trees. We're prairie lands. ;) I do love that because the leaves change so late, unless winter comes early, we get to keep our colors around a little longer. I still took some nice foliage pictures over Thanksgiving last year.

      Her outfit made me happy. She was so shy when we got there, and wouldn't talk to her "birthday cowboy" (our guide, who was WONDERFUL), but she loosened up! She roped that steer! She walked like a cowboy! It was great.

    1. It was educational, too! Our birthday cowboy taught them about fur trading (there's an old cabin full of trading materials), some Cherokee words and phrases, about cattle driving and steer roping, one-room schoolhouses... And they loved it! They ate it up! He said he isn't used to a party full of little girls, but these little girls were very into it!

      And thanks. I was kinda proud of the outfit. ;)

    1. Thank you! I tried to convince her to wear it to church today, but she chose a t-shirt, leggings, and tutu skirt instead. Oh, well. We're only 6 once.
