Jude's Party: The Real Deal

I set a goal for myself to finish blogging about Jude's party before Delaney's birthday, which is this Saturday. So, please forgive me if this post lacks the usual witty dialogue. There are so many photos to sift through, and I'm posting my favorites in no particular order. After reviewing all of the pictures, I noticed that we don't have ONE picture of Nana and Papa, and they were pretty key players, seeing how the party was in their backyard. Sorry, Nana and Papa. You guys are superheros. Thanks to everyone who traveled near and far to celebrate J. Billy. It was such a wonderful, love-filled day. Here we go!

Our family, gone country.

Delaney loves her Fo-na (Fiona) so very, very much.

My brother, Uncle Redneck, came down to celebrate Jude. Here we're taking a break from the total chaos that surrounded us.

Gavin, Taylor, and Abbey, hard at work riding and roping.

Ben, Emma Q., Corinta, and Zoe getting crafty.

Uncle Monkey, Auntie Beans, and Grandpa teasing the birthday boy with some root beer.

My Gramps and Grams drove all the way from Oregon to be a part of Jude's special day. It meant the world to all of us to have them there.

Cutest outlaw ever.

Look at all of those presents! Now if only Jude could write his own thank you cards...

Delaney and Anneliese cheering Jude on.

Oh Ju-Ju-Bee, you're pretty great.

This guy was so into his cake.

Do you see this line? Pin the Tail on the Horsey was a crowd pleaser.

Alex stares intensely at his opponents, devising a plan to win.

The birthday cowboy enjoying a "tube steak," also known as the common hot dog.

Friends getting their grub on.

Delaney got to ring the dinner triangle and almost clocked me in the face. Aunt Joni was thoroughly entertained.

Folks just having a real nice time.

Auntie Kari and her camera.

Taryn and the sweet Baby Addy.
