Birthday Celebrations, Archery Style

A couple of weeks ago, our boy had a birthday. Eleven! Another year's worth of reasons to be so very proud of him. Ever a fan of Robin and his merry men, Peter received his own bow and arrow set this year. We have still yet to obtain the hay bales and set up a shooting range outside. Still trying to figure out the logistics on that one ...

 So while he waits, he had a band of his own merry men over to the local archery range for a shootin' party. Targets and balloons were obliterated and once Pops brought out the life-sized poster of the wart-hog, the arrows really started flying.

For celebration, Peter chose a smattering of donuts instead of birthday cake. Brilliant! A real crowd-pleaser and mom pleaser as well. Doesn't get much easier than ordering up 3 dozen donuts!

And Peter, in his ever-gracious way, allowed his wee-lass of a sister to partake on several rounds. (She was shockingly good. Just look at that stance!)

It is a happy thing, indeed, to celebrate one another. Peter, it is our joy to celebrate you.


  1. Delightful! I'm with you on the've almost got me completely replanning my 10 yr. old's bday this month. :) Looks like everyone had a great time!

  2. Sad to miss the family party but thanks for taking care of my wee ones! Where is the picture of the life size wart hog?

  3. What a perfect party for an 11 year old boy... right down to the donuts!

    Yes, celebrating each other is one of life's greatest delights.

  4. That is a great idea for a birthday party! And who doesn't love a donut?

  5. Belated Happy Birthday! Sounds new to me, my nephew will surely like this too.
