Whoo hoo!  Grab your party hats, practice making your favorite animal noise, and ooogle over the cuteness of Ellis’ barnyard theme 1st birthday party!

Lindsey  and Cutler graciously transformed their home to accommodate all things necessary to evoke that Kentucky barnyard feel.  Family and friends were greeted by hay bales, pumpkins, and bushels of apples, not to mention DIY pony sticks and party hats.

As babies played together and adults munched down on some bbq, a leash lead petting zoo was ushered up 36 steps to a backyard paradise.  Cow and pig cakepops, cowboy hats, and a bottle of bourbon rounded out the afternoon (yes, bourbon is absolutely mandatory for any sort of Kentucky-esque event).

Even a crisp chill in the air and a little afternoon drizzle couldn’t “rain” on Ellis’ parade!

Ellis wore his cute little plaid shirt and he LOVED seeing all the animals in his very own backyard.  Ellis was a tiny bit timid at first, but I loved watching the little guy squeek and squeal when he petted one of the baby chicks.  So stinkin’ cute!
