Birthday crisis averted!

So, remember two days ago, when I was all freaking out about the impending seventh birthday of everyone's favorite red head?

Random door-to-door solicitor to the rescue!

I was about to walk out the door of my job yesterday afternoon, and this guy came by. And he had some stuff to sell. And normally I don't give these types the time of day, but I knew he was legit (mostly because they'd come around last year too, and I think someone else in my office had bought what he was selling.)

And what was he selling?

Tickets to this place:

Cedar Hill Farms is just a few miles north of here, in the next county.

Anna Marie had brought home a flier from school this week, and asked to go. And then this guy comes by, and sells me 10 tickets for $30, which would cost me about $15 each if purchased separately. (Serendipity!) And with those tickets (which he assured me can be used all at once if I so desire) we can go on hayrides, and through a corn maze, (or MAIZE as they cleverly call it) and all sorts of other fun, fall-ish stuff.

Instant birthday party!

And I'm pretty darn excited, because they have picnic tables, so we can just bring some food and have ourselves a good old time.

Now all I have to do is figure out a date and a time, and narrow down the 10 guests, and we're all set!

Did the new layout, sis.

I'm pumped about bringing cupcakes to a picnic birthday party thingy.

I think it will be wonderful! I wish I could come too! : )

Let's see. Me, you, AM, Jason, Mom, Dad, Jeremy, Amanda, The Other Kid. That's 9.

Oh, that's a great idea for a birthday party! We're having an "ice cream" birthday party this weekend for the 9 year old.

Oh, and I LOVE the new look. I'm trying to update my look right now but having technical difficulties.

Since I read all of your posts in reverse (started at top of page and worked my way down to here) it's funny to read this post now ... now that I know there are no picnic tables and now that I know about the limiter on the tickets.

All the same, it's a GREAT deal. It will still be fun to go in a few weeks in the evening. Nice and cool and even more "fall" ish. I'll bet you'll take some lovely photos and have a super time. And you'll end up with TWO days out ... one for Amanda's party and one outing to the farm.

Bright side, thy name is (crap ... just forgot the name of that farm). hee hee.

Hmmm ... I wanna be number 10!

Of course ... I live way too far away.
