What a fantastic day from start to finish. Gorgeous weather, dream-come-true birthday gifts, lots and lots going on all at once – music in the basement, a traveling trumpet, a worried goose, chickens underfoot, a trampoline and an old-timey car… and our wonderful friends and family to share it all with…
The birthday angel came!
WOW! The long-wished for Calypso remote-controlled glider!!
And the grown-up software for learning how to actually fly! OMG!!
Very proud owner of the Calypso
There’s a helicopter coming in for a landing just above the cake… (bad angle to see well)
The party gets started
Something’s happening in the incubator…
It’s somebody else’s birthday now, too!
Some boys sneaking away for a little DS time…
Alex and Paige on the hammock
Jessica and Matt enjoy the zero gravity chairs and the view
Time for cake!
Look who’s here! The youngest resident of Greenfield, baby Rachel – and her whole family!
Annabelle is a big sister twice…
Hayden announces the gifts with a fanfare
Look what Cora made for Elihu!
Cora and Sophia made these too!!
Lots going on at once…
And it looks like everyone’s having a good time
What a nice bunch of folks
Elihu with Grandpa, Mama and Grandma
This poor goose was very frustrated and tired with all the coming and going…
Things take a little longer, but that’s ok. The whole party actually picked up and moved to accomodate Dad when he arrived. So grateful to everyone for including him. He hasn’t been out in ages…
Bye neighbors! Nice to see all five of you…
Elihu and I have dinner by candlelight. Heather brought me some “Happy Birthing Day” flowers! So very kind of her.
Two very happy people at the end of a very lovely birthday.
