Pig Roast 2011

IMG_6160r

A couple weekends ago we had a pig roast at our farm in celebration of Maine Man’s 40th birthday, in addition to 2 of his friends that also turned the big 4-0 this year.  We fed quite a crowd and from the feedback I’ve received I think all had a nice time.

Pictured above is my bff and her s/o.  Blessed to have her in my life!

Thanks goes out to the girls as well that helped with set up & clean up, picking wild flowers and decorating!

MM hung this swing up between our two maple trees.  Country Boy bought it a couple years back at a lawn sale.  It is now our FAVORITE spot to sit…when we sit!

One good thing about having a big gathering is that you get projects completed that may have taken you MUCH longer.  In our case the swing, my wood cook stove is painted and in the house, barn doors were painted, the outhouse, the list goes on and on.  Even did some Spring cleaning that I’d been neglecting since last Spring..lol

Left- friend, one of the birthday boy’s wives.  THANK YOU as well for all your help ….much appreciated!

Right – my other neighbor.  Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE my neighbors?  Lucky to be surrounded by  a bunch of good peeps.  Has been a blessing for my children as well.  GRATEFUL!

Dinner for a whole lot of people.  I didn’t keep count but I’d dare guess some where’s up by 100.  Just about serving time I had a brief twinge of chest pain while looking at the crowd.

Friends since high school.  We have lots of good stories to share but I’ll refrain as this is public and a must behave.

Love Love my parents…Grateful for the time I spend with them.

My two pals!!!  THANKFUL for our friendship!

Goat Milking brought in quite a crowd.  We usually milk outside but MM  moved Dolly’s stand in the barn.  We think we are normal at times I think we are a side show…lol

What I LOVE most about Biker Stacy’s daughter is that she’ll TRY ANYTHING!

Looks like you had a great time! We celebrated my hubby's 50th last weekend and had friends fly in from all over. Too bad we wait for those special occasions to get together. We need to make more excuses.

Looks like fun! I kind of miss milking days but not so much though. No pig roast for my parent's and I since we're pretty much vegetarians, the only meat we sometimes eat is turkey or chicken and seafood but other than that we eat vegetarian meat.
