Fiona Turns Six!

Hi, everyone!

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 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.
