April Birthday Number Two

We celebrate a lot of birthdays in the month of April.  Today is our oldest granddaughter's sixth birthday and we went to a farm for the celebration this past weekend.  The farm we went to provides birthday parties, weddings and the normal seasonal activities.  Part of the party was to include a bonfire to roast hot dogs and marshmallows but the weather did not cooperate for those activities.  The children were able to have a pony ride and a train ride that is pulled behind a tractor in between the rain.  They could get up close to the farm animals and walk through the barns.

And of coarse the afghan I worked so hard to get finished last week.
 The children had such a great time looking at and petting all the farm animals.  If the weather was better I think I would have had quite a few more pictures.  The animals are all well taken care of and the owners were wonderful people and so sweet to all the children.
 On a side note, this is what our weather looked like yesterday morning.
You can see the hen house out to the left of the picture.

 I have a bloggy friend I would like to ask where my Spring is?  You know who you are.  We ended up with about an inch and it melted off by early afternoon.  We also had some snow flurries again this morning but no accumulation today.  I am so ready for Spring!  Sending out blessings to you all!
