Happy Birthday to Me

My daughter Sue (right) and her partner Meiliege (left) came up to spend the weekend with us. It was my birthday. Again. We went for BBQ and a country cookout at a neighbors home. They even had a band.  The cookout was for Labor Day. I choose to believe, in my own mind, that the party was for me too.
Spending the time with family is wonderful. We had tractor rides. Meiliege's son came and went for his very first tractor ride with Ted. They moved dirt! To a 5 year old boy moving dirt is way up there on the fun scale.
Meiliege and Sue made this cake for me.  Very talented women.  I am completely blown away with their skills.

A hen on top of the barn. (she didn't last too long after this picture. A giant creature came along and ate her.)After all, chickens should not be on the roof.

A complete barnyard with sheep, chickens, turkeys and hay.

I can't think of a better way to spend my 51st birthday. Family and friends.
Thank you all for making it special.
Much Love and Prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm.
