Asher Wade’s Birthday Derby Party

We celebrated Asher Wade’s second birthday this past weekend in true Kentucky fashion with a Derby themed party!  It went off without a single glitch!  When does that ever happen?!  First off, we could not have asked for better weather.  Temps in the 70s and not a cloud in the sky.  Second, there were pony rides, and what kid doesn’t love a pony.  Third, but definitely not least, we have the best friends and family ever, and they make every special event, all the more special, just by being there.  So thankful to everyone that came out to celebrate.  As he grows older, I know Asher Wade will realize that there are so many people that love and care for him.  I could just go on and on about what a great group of friends we have.

It was so much fun to plan this party, and although it’s really exhausting, it’s totally worth the time and effort.  Gotta figure out how we are going to maintain par for next year!  Rather than go into a bunch of detail about the party, I will just let the pictures do the talking…

First off, this is how I roll with party planning. Gotta be organized!

The kids were so excited when the ponies showed up!

After watching the horse race, we did birthday cake.  The same sweet lady that made his cake last year, did it again this year.  She is from Matt’s hometown and she is the best!

Some of the kids got a little tee-ball game going later on.  So cute…

So much fun!  I wish I had gotten more pictures of everyone, but it was hard to remember to.   Oh, and can I just show off my fascinator for a minute?:-)
