Bressi Ranch Fall Hoe Down

Nothing says Fall like a good ole fashion Hoe Down, with all the fixings...BBQ food, Country Music, Pig Racing and Cow Milking! That is what we all got to enjoy at our communities Fall Event.  

Of course, the ultimate Host and Hostess, Eric and Jess put on the perfect pre-party for all of us. There were Fall games for the kids, art projects, tons of appetizers, beer, and the signature Hoe Down drink...Electric Blue Lemonade (with a hint of Vodka) for us parents.  

Skylar was missing Sophie as they hadn't seen in each in a couple days, so to say the least she was THRILLED to be with her and the rest of the gang. 

Our attempt at a group picture of the kids and T.J.  

The kids were getting antsy so we rallied the whole group together and headed to the Hoe Down.  If you can't tell the kids were leading the pack.

Pure joy on everyone's faces as we arrived.

The whole clubhouse was decked out with haystacks, food, drinks, games, and face painting for the kids.  The second they ran in the kids hit the dance floor to get their do-si-do on.  

After breaking in the dance floor it was game time.  These games they had at the event were awesome and a step up from the previous events.  Piggy Racers was a huge hit with the kids.  Madden was his sister's secret weapon to winning, as he would just stand on the side and push his sisters piggy to the finish line, not letting the pig move on its on.

Next on the agenda was the Hula Hoop contest.  Sadly, neither Sophie nor Skylar took home a prize in the contest, but they definitely put on their best effort.  With all that practice by the end of the night Skylar's hula skills vastly improved.  Madden even tried, but he was better at just swinging his hoop and almost hitting the other kids with it.  The DJ also put on a hula contest for the parents, to which I was eliminated immediately. 

Cowgirl Mama's!

Face painting time!  Skylar asked for a rainbow.  I hated having to wash it off only an hour later, but it looked cute on her while it lasted.

The cow milking races was something that really intrigued Madden.  He was over there for what felt like an hour milking the cow.  

The night, of course when by so fast since everyone was having such a great time.  Skylar wanted to end the night doing more hula hooping.  When I told you she got better by the end of the night, I wasn't lying, pictures prove it.

Hula hooping and throwing up the "peace" sign!

Even Madden got a little better.

The Hoe Down was a great way to welcome in Fall and the upcoming holidays.

  1. What an amazing event, full of so many fun activities for the kids of Bressi! Skylar and Madden and all their friends look like they are having a ball. And hula hooping at "3" is remarkable! We loved Madden wanting to milk the cow! You did a super job with these pix, Nicole. And the whole family looks so happy, healthy and full of life! I do hope at least one of these pic make it into the Bressi Living. And I think you should be the photographer for the events, Nicole, as your pix are so lively and candid!
