Simple Farm Birthday


We celebrated Levi’s birthday last month.  This was his first birthday party that we invited friends to attend.  He’s the fourth kid…’s amazing that I even remember his birthday.   I’M KIDDING!!!  Kinda.

We kept it simple and cheap.  We had an old tractor tire that  we filled with corn.  We buried plastic bugs and lizards and let the kids dig around to find them.  Mostly they just wanted to dig.


They had egg races…you know…cuz we have a billion eggs.  They also had sack races in the feed bags, played on the swings and in the fort and held the chickens.  The children had a lot of fun….just playing outside.  It reminded me not to complicate things too much.  Children are so easily entertained by the simple things in this world, it was refreshing to see all these sweet kids enjoy a day on the farm.
