Davy Crockett Birthday Fun

I can't believe I have a 9-year-old now. 

Royal, as you may have seen in previous posts here, here and here is my wannabe frontiersman. He is always talking about guns, trapping, fishing, hunting and longing for about a million acres of his own on which to roam free and wild. ... His own private frontier.

Several months ago he decided he wanted a Davy Crockett birthday.

I obliged with simple, practical festivities.

After morning muffins and the "big gift", we invited friends to a local outdoor museum where frontier life could be imagined, complete with wagons, an old one-room schoolhouse, jail, office and teepees.

We had a campfire cake...

...and passed out bandanas with basic food supplies for a long day's hike inside (nuts, popcorn, jerky and candies)


Some of the more revered and Crockett/Frontier-specific treasures:

A fun day's celebration in honor of a great kid!
