Let's Sleep Under the Stars!

"Camping is nature's way of feeding mosquitos!"

Ha.  That makes me laugh as I am still itching a few places
where the "skeet-as" got me.

We had a big 'ol family campout this weekend to celebrate my nephews middle
school graduation and my niece's 3rd birthday.  It was a camping extraordinaire
because of my very talented family.
My sister-in-laws had the vision of a woodland/camping
birthday/graduation soiree and WOW was it fun and detail packed!


Y'all come on in and take a peak!


We have a lot of talented grandmama's around this family and they are leaving
some mighty big shoes for us Mama's to fill. We are so blessed with their talents.
Mimi was asked to make a "stump" cake and a "butterfly" cake.
LOOK at her masterpiece cakes!




My brother-in-law also put his chainsaw in party mode and look at what he cranked out! Is that the cutest cupcake stand ever?!?


Speaking of masterpieces, look at God's handiwork in this little brown eyed blondie.  She is quite the apple of our eye and we can't believe she is turning "free".


To keep all the little campers happy, Aunt Tarrie set up a goodie station complete with toasted marshmallow Jelly Bellies and a smore kit for each family.  These came in handy later around the fire. 



Aunt Tarrie asked if I could help her with tags, so I got busy.  My talents are more refined to keyboards and cameras, although Mama Bird says I am a great pin and press girl in the sewing room! Ha ha. 

The kits had chocolate bars, graham crackers and square marshmallows that make the perfect smore.


Now let's take a stroll outside to check out the party fare and this beautiful little farm. 






Know what these beauties are good for?


Yep.  I may or may not have offered to arm wrestle my 10 year old for the last one.  Auntie makes the best deviled eggs.  





This was definitely my favorite detail.  A pretty little spotty to go to the potty.  
Seriously I laughed and laughed about this. 




Camper Parking!



So some of us glamped and some of us camped!



But we ALL had so much fun!










The kids ended the day with a scavenger hunt and giggling way into the dark with their new lanterns. 




Memories for a lifetime crammed into one Friday night at the farm.  We are so blessed. 

Here's a party favor for you in the event you need to make a smore kit or host a camping shindig!
