Boy vs. Wild

For NoBo's 8th Birthday we had a Boy vs. Wild survival party.  It was kind of a last minute theme, but it turned out great and was a perfect theme for little boys!  Notice the Eagles nest and "eggs".

Here are some of the decorations. 

Of Course you can't go without survival juice or water!
The kids are getting their survival kits, and taught how to use them.

"Hunting" for food.  


Learning how to start a fire without matches.

NoBo and his good friend sitting around the fire.

We had to have a dirt cake being out in the wild and all!  Complete with rocks and deer droppings!

Team Us

Team Them

We were so lucky to have (almost) all of my family come and visit us for Thanksgiving.  It was such a wonderful day with lots of good food, football, and a walk on the Shoreline trail at Talullah Falls.  We played our traditional Thanksgiving day football game...yes that is a football field you see painted on our side yard!
