A Sugarless Birthday Bash?! Say it ain't so!


So, my sweet, tender, quiet Miss G decided being 2 wasn't all that exciting, and she wanted to turn 3. Well, she doesn't technically turn 3 until Friday, but we celebrated this weekend with family. It was an absolutely beautiful day. I love it when the Lord blesses us with perfect weather. Last year, for Miss G's party, it rained like nothing else, and we were all stuck inside. And as fun as making S'mores in the wood stove was, it didn't allow the kids to get all their craziness energy out. 

I was trying to fall asleep a few weeks ago thinking of what type of games to do for her party, when the idea of "Shoot the Tail on the Donkey" came to mind. That was quickly settled. Shooting a BB gun at a birthday party? Heck yes! 



It was a blast. Everyone participated, from my 98-year-old grandpa down to 3-year-old Miss G. 



J-Man ended up taking the prize on that contest. 


Each of the kids made their own boat to race down the "Lazy River" (a.k.a. the irrigation canal that runs through our property): 




And even though we did stray some from our no-grain, no-dairy, no-sugar lifestyle, we didn't throw it all out the window:


Better-for-you-than-some-other-things Popcorn Balls (from Everyday Paleo)


No-grain carrot cake with delicious cream cheese frosting (from Primal Palate).

It was a wonderful, fun day. And these were two of my favorite parts:


Seeing my grandpa enjoying himself!


And this adorable face!!!

Happy birthday, sweet girl.
