Lewis celebrated his eighth birthday on September 9. Although we went to dinner and opened presents as a family, we had his party on September 15.
His biggest request was to have people just come spend time with him. He requested having hamburgers and homemade chicken sausage. He also enjoyed showing the farm and processing equipment. He said he wanted people to “learn about the farm.”
The majority of the day was spent outside. The kids played on a play set, cornhole, and other outside sport/games. His teacher even stopped by to take a look, which made him very proud.
My mother baked and decorated his requested strawberry cake and cupcakes. When it was time to blow out the candles he said he was just going to blow them out; he didn’t need to wish for anything else because he was happy.
Happy birthday, Lewis. You’re such a sweet and caring boy. Never stop thinking of others and being content with what you have.
So June 6 was my husband’s birthday and June 7 was my daughter’s birthday. We celebrated their birthdays on June 10 on the farm.
My mother baked a cheesecake for my husband.
My mother made my daughter a chocolate cake. Fi insisted on having strawberry flowers and my mother delivered some pretty delicious and awesome looking cakes. Fi is excited about being six because that means she doesn’t need a booster seat in the car anymore.
All the two birthday people really wanted was to eat food and have people over. So we invited a bunch of family and friends over and made food! We tried to be as farm to table as possible.
We smoked chicken that came straight from the farm.
We also smoked some chicken sausage that we processed on site. We had Polish, Italian, and spicy sausages.
We had a lot of people visit who have not been exposed to farm animals before. Guests enjoyed getting to meet some of our goats and other animals. All of the kids played on the play set. Nonstop. I don’t understand how they pushed for as long as they did.
After playing, we did cake and presents. And after that, they played some more, much to my surprise; it was a hot day.
When my daughter was asked what she enjoyed the most she replied that seeing all of her friends was the most fun.
Everyone got along and everyone enjoyed themselves. That was the most important.
I know it’s a short post, but I’m going to end it with wishing both my husband and my daughter a very happy birthday.
