The old glass pitcher and small juice glasses provide a centerpiece for my kitchen table.  I picked
some flowers from the garden, and was happy with the simple way they dressed up the table.


This past weekend, we celebrated one special little two year old's birthday.  The new barn and
farm animals we gave him were a hit.


Since it rained on our planned picnic, all the children gathered on our daughter and son-in-law's
kitchen floor.  Younger ones eager to share with the older ones, in some cases:)


Since he lives in the city, we brought the farm to him, via the packaged wooden
red barn, and plastic farm animals.
 

And of course, it came in many pieces! Guess who got to put it all together?
Thank goodness for our son-in-law's expertise in this area.  I love seeing the
anticipation on the faces those waiting.



We do not farm the land personally, but we sure are grateful for those who do.  We will do our
part to promote farming in America.

Thank you for stopping by.

Every family needs one farm set and this one looks great! We still have the Fisher Price one here.

I love that you took the farm to the city...to help a sweet two-year-old celebrate his birthday! I'm sure the rained-out picnic was not missed by the birthday boy. Happy birthday to him. Where did those two years go?

Both of my son's loved the barn and animals as well. Love that you had the kitchen picnic, one for the memory book :-)
Hugs!

Happy Birthday to your precious little two-year-old! Fun anticipation of farm house play time!

The flowers are gorgeous on your table! Amazing red roses and so pretty with the white and green!

Hi Judy. I love that you put daisies in the pitcher. I have a few of those juice pitchers with matching glasses/swanky swigs. I might have to try that. Cutest little 2 yr. old. Looks like he loved his farm. I read back your last post that I missed and jotted down the chicken recipe. Sounds really good. I love new ways to cook chicken..Happy Tuesday..Judy

It's always fun to celebrate birthdays with our grandchildren isn't it? That barn is wonderful, our grandchildren love their play animals too. Your table looks so pretty, you always do a great job with your flower arranging
