Sandy's 50th Birthday party

Where are we today ?
New Hamburg Ontario
        Well this is the day for Sandy's 50th birthday party she is our sister-in-law and an excellent hostess for us her at the farm. Also the main reason we are here at this time. A lot of work on a dairy farm and we like to help out when we can. So putter around for a couple day to get ready for today's bash.

Happy Birthday Sandy !
        Chatting socializing, and eating lots food is the order of the day. Oh yeah we had lots to eat, roast beef on a bun, potato salad, coleslaw, veggies and dips, cheese trays and a huge gluten free birthday cake with ice cream for desert.

After licking the plate around for a while
he finally put his foot on it to hold it still.
        Most of the friends and relatives invited today are farmers so they we get together at 1 pm after church to eat and then they all head back to their respective farms for chores about 4 pm. about 50 people here to celebrate today.
        As people left and chores and milking done a few came back for another round of food, chat a bit more then we all gonna call it a night.
        Always nice to have these large get togethers glad you could join us today.
