This weekend we celebrated Kolter's 1st birthday with a cowboy & indians party! We had lots of family and friends in attendance which made the day even more special!
Before the party I couldn't resist a little photoshoot with my little man and then his siblings.

He immediately liked it! There was no holding back at this point. He picked up the whole cupcake and proceeded to inhale it!
After the smash cake the guests were invited to try a variety of s'more treats. Sawyer was sweet enough to roast a s'more for me, but Kolter would not stop trying to get his hands on it. So, I indulged him by putting him back in the high chair for round 2 of sweets.
Here are some more action pictures from the party:
A group shot of the chaos. We had over 40 people crammed in our house including over 20 children. Before the party a friend suggested hiring a babysitter or two to run the games and crafts and generally control the chaos. That was the best move I made! There were no kids crying and everyone was taken care of so I could focus on the food and Kolter.
Speaking of crafts…we had a make your own indian headdress station. Lots of feather and glue!

We also had several outdoor activities for the kiddos and adults to enjoy. We had a bonfire going to roast s'mores. Kyle set out several games including a kid friendly horseshoe game, bow and arrow, soccer, sidewalk chalk, riding toys and an obstacle course. The weather was absolutely beautiful so everyone enjoyed being outdoors.
We love our family and group of friends. We feel so blessed to be able to share in this celebration of Kolter's life with them! I'll be back on Wednesday with more info and pictures about the party details.
