Pony Party!!!

Back in June, we partied it up in Woodinville. . . pony style!!!

Natalie and Kirsten have April and May birthdays, so I did a combined party for the newly 2 and 4-year olds at this amazing horse farm called Pony Paradise Rides! It was soooooo adorable, they even dressed the ponies up in princess garb for the occasion!

Kirsten was a little apprehensive, but she was ready to ride!

Isn't that just the cutest little pony you've ever seen???

I was just SURE that Natalie was going to be thrilled to ride the ponies. After all, I have proof that she rode a full-size horse just a couple of weeks before the party! We were at Country Village, and Natalie was the happiest 2 year-old you'd ever see on a horse!

Happy. . .

Happy. . .

Happy. . .

{Day of party}. . . Crying and refusing to even sit for one little minute on a pony! Wouldn't ride them at all!!!

Weird. Oh well.

This was the only horse she wanted to ride that day. . .

I thought we could count on nice weather in June {silly me!} but we had a gloomy, rainy day. Luckily the horse farm had a whole tented area so everyone could stay dry!

All the kids LOVED the two bouncy houses, especially the one with the slide. It was probably a bigger hit than the ponies were!

Fun with friends!!!

At the bottom of the bouncy slide there was a big ball pit. It worked great, because all the babies and toddlers could play in the ball pit and stay contained in there!

We feasted on hot dogs, chips and dips, fruit, berry lemonade, and s'mores!

A big thank you to my mom and dad for flying up for the party and then hanging out at the fire pit helping to grill up all the food!

And what does every pony party desperately need?

Of course! An incredible, detailed, totally adorable cake that I didn't have to make!!! I only had to order it! :)

Everyone sang happy birthday to the girls!
{Apparently Kirsten thought it was too loud}

And we blew out the candles and dug in!

"Hi! Aren't I cute? Come and pet me!"
{I think he probably is the cutest llama I've ever seen}

Because princess ponies and bouncy houses aren't enough, the place also had a cute little petting farm with a spotted llama and some pygmy goats! The kids had so much fun feeding them and petting them!


SO many friends came and everyone had such a blast! This will definitely be a party to remember forever!!!

Happy birthday, Kirsten and Natalie!


  1. What an adorable party! Love the theme and cake.

  2. Wow what a party!! I am thinking of doing a pony party for my daughter's 4th but her bday is in Feb. Boo. Great photos though!!

  3. Wow...what an AMAZING birthday party! Everything looked great and I bet the kids had so much fun. I love, love, love the spotted llama, cake, and princess ponies. My nieces would be in heaven. What a wonderful memory!

  4. That is the cutest party ever! I have all boys and my youngest would freak in a tantrum if I put him near a live pony! I wish he would tolerate that!


Comments make me happy :)
