Oh my goodness – it’s Sunday night. How in the world did that happen? 

As I posted yesterday here, it was my birthday weekend and I made the most of it with a day off Friday, a little golfing on a very summer-like Saturday, and a trip to the farm to spend the day with family. The pictures capture more of the fun than mere words could, so I’m going to just jump right to it:

And then a trip to the farm to hang out with my family – like this little gal, Miss Morgan. It’s so fun to be her “Aunta” (that’s what she calls me)!

He took Joe and Miss Morgan for a ride in the combine, which they both declared was “awesome!”

And yep, he’s taller than me.

You can’t see my parents’ home, but it’s around the corner from the bins, also on the left. I love the farm during harvest … there is something about all the sights and sounds of what’s happening.

Teacher Man and Lobo, my dad’s new Husky puppy. Isn’t she gorgeous?

A birthday gift to myself … pug leggings from LuLaRoe! I have been searching high and low for these. And only pug lovers probably understand. ๐Ÿ™‚

And somehow Miss Morgan coerced all of us to sit on the steps and play one of her imagination games. My mom took the picture so that’s why she’s not in the photo. ๐Ÿ™‚

It was a great day, filled with family, good food, plenty of wine, and a delicious homemade birthday cake! (Big thanks go to my mom for making the cake and the entire meal for all of us!)

It was birthday cake and coffee for breakfast, as well as a little play time with Miss Morgan and Lobo before we headed for home today. The day was capped off by a Minnesota Vikings win and some homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Oh, and my birthday leggings! (Because if you can’t wear party pants on your birthday, when can you?)
