Family Vacation: Western Night

For our second night on the beach we had Western Night! The first day at the house the guys are usually exhausted from driving down (we leave at 2am so that the girls are sleeping in the car = less bathroom breaks and 'are we there yets') so it's usually a bit more low key. Dinner and an early night. 

Our second night, however, everyone was amped up for a theme night. Especially Zoe. For Western night the guys organized dinner while the girls planned the activities. They started it off with peanuts in the shell and chips and salsa. The main course was absolutely delicious western BBQ burgers with BBQ sauce and fried onions. They nailed it. It's safe to say any night Jeff and Kyle are on food duty, they will grill.

Pre-dinner snuggles with Grandma
For the activities, my mom had purchased inflatable horses for horse races and a horse cutout for 'pin the mustache on the horse' - a hilarious game that did not exist prior to this night. We also had a saloon door cut out for pictures. After dinner we went for a walk to the ice cream shop in the middle of the island, our first trip there in full costume but certainly not our last, and people were thoroughly confused. We thought it was hilarious.

All in all - night one was a huge success! Zoe was a big fan of this one. Up next: Luau night!

We had to have fake mustaches for at least one night
Don't miss Luau nightZombie night, Medieval Times and Award night.

  1. Hmmm, my last post seemed to disappear - let's try that again. Thanks for capturing our fun in your blog Alison. The pin the mustache on the horse game was hilarious!
