I also had a lot of fun prepping the food and things to put on the food table.
We set up the party at Chicken Coop Landing
This guy was all smiles for the camera
The birthday girl wouldn't let me take any pictures of her, however
Once everyone got to the party I gave them their backpacks, canteens and scavenger hunt and sent them on their way to go find everything which could probably have been found while just standing in any given spot back there. My favorite was when one girl said, "Look, I found THE rock"
Once they were gone, I sprawled out on the blanket with a bunch of the yummy food and read. Best party ever!
