a family fun party on the farm

this past saturday we hosted wilhelm's preschool class at our farm for a family fun outdoor party. thankfully the weather was picture perfect, right up until the last family left and then the flood gates opened for a major downpour.

the purpose was two-fold for us, to celebrate the end of school with our little guy, his friends, and their families, and to have one last BIG "thing" for wilhelm before the BIG arrival of his baby sister (we are now two weeks away, unless she comes before then). of the 12 classmates, eight were able to make it the party with their families, along with one of wilhelm's lexington friends (maya, who has made blog appearances before) and her family, one of the teachers from wilhelm's class, and alan's dad, pappy. the day included fishing, bubbles, hiking, eating, a hot dog bar, other good food, and just enjoying the company of friends. there were nearly 40 people in all and i was just glad that they all were able to navigate their way to the farm without getting to misplaced in the country.

we had such a grand time, but were exhausted at nights end. my only regret of the day, besides not planning all of the fine details until a few days before (i typically have a bit more energy and time to spend on party planning but for some reason most of the details were left until the thursday before this time), was that i didn't take nearly enough pictures. i didn't even get a picture of wilhelm with any of his friends or the desert table where i made alan's favorite kick-back to childhood dessert, worms & dirt cake. this is the only glimpse you get of the day, the rest is a memory for us and those who attended this past saturday.
