A Halloween-Donkey-Safari Party

There was a lot of excitement around 7MSN yesterday. A party was about to start and everybody had to dress up:

George thought he might be exempt since he was clearly napping:

...but Carson is very accommodating and was totally able to work around his sleep:

He was pretty much still sleeping when she was finished:

Even Wynonna agreed to don a colorful bandanna:

Mostly because she knows how stunning she looks in pink:

Soon, the party guests arrived:

Carson had to direct her crew to "please back up" because, in their excitement, they were all blocking the entry gate:

The guests were from Morning Bray Farm! Bernard was the first boy off the trailer:

The Morning Bray Boys, Ellsworth, Bernard and Patrick, took one look at the bandanna'd boys and girl of 7MSN and went behind a bush to hide. Though happy to see their friends, they weren't at all convinced they wanted to wear costumes:

Especially when they realized that, back at the barn, the next costume activity was taking place:

George won the "good sport" and "longevity-wear" prize, hands down:

...which irritated Hank a bit because he felt he totally rocked the dino hat:

Even the humans gave the hats a try, though we weren't really any competition for the critters:

Hank did compliment Justina on her hat. Hank luuuuuuuuhves Justina:

Carson's numerous photo assistants were always close-by and more than willing to suggest alternate subject matter for her photos:

Then it was time for everyone to head out onto the "Back 40". Quick as a wink, all the donkeys disappeared:

We humans felt very left behind, so Don came to our rescue with the Ranger:

and we went on a "Donkey Safari":

Without a doubt, this was the most fun I have had in a *long* time.

After some rough-terrain driving on the Back 40, we found them:

...the wild beasts (with bandannas) of 7MSN and MBF.

The wild beasts were quite curious and proceeded to nibble on our vehicle:

Carson grew concerned that Don's head was getting sunburned, however all we had to protect it was...this:

The hat didn't bother Lucy (or Don) a bit:

At times, it really did feel like we were out on the plains of Africa tracking magnificent wild animals:

...with our safari driver wearing a pig hat:

As always, though, much too soon, it was time for the Morning Bray Farm herd to head back home:

George and Alan stood at the fence until their friends pulled away:

Wouldn't it be fun to have a party like this every week?:

I sure think so:


  1. Looks like everyone had a super, duper time...and I hafta say, Don sure is a good sport. You girls look so great together...the three donketeers, blogger buddies.

  2. LOL, the pig in pink nearly made me pee my pants. Wow. You're all nuts.

  3. soooo much fun!! You are one lucky lady!!! :)

  4. That is too funny!! And Wynonna....why she does look spectacular in pink! Loved the post. :)

  5. I think Wynona and Boo have a lot in common.

  6. Oh my gosh, yes it would. And again, here I am smiling from ear to ear and laughing out loud living it all over again through your pictures and words. :) Loved it!!! :) xoxo

  7. Very cute post and so much fun at the party. Seriuosly, though, what was the purpose? Just to let the roam for a while? It looked like a great afternoon.

  8. I think that's the best Halloween Donkey Safari ever! What a fun time. I just love the costumes :)

  9. yes, Linda in NM, I think "the three donketeers" fits very well!

    too much fun... I could feel the laughter and it made me smile!!!

  10. What fun! Wish I could have grabbed my 7MSN cap and been there. Looks like everyone had a great time with lots of laughter. Especially Don in his pink pig hat. Hysterical.

  11. Thanks for all the awesome pictures. Looks like a great time! :)

  12. Now that is a party. Looks like you had a great time. I love, love, love that pig hat.

  13. You guys really know how to throw a party! The pig hat is the best! Thanks for a good chuckle over my coffee this morning, you are very entertaining!

  14. Oh, my, I'm laughing so hard. The hats were hilarious (and I agree with Hank - he totally rocked the dinosaur!)Looks like a great time. I'm glad to see you all having so much fun.

  15. WAY tooo much fun! Oh, I just love every word... every picture of this post. Fantastic!
