Driveway construction 

We hired a Bobcat owner/operator to make us a driveway on one of the sloppiest days of the year. But man, it was so worth it!  First he graded the driveway, and made the ditch for the culvert. Andrew went to buy the culvert, and he and the Bobcat guy laid it in place.

Then four loads of driveway gravel got dumped at the entrance, and got spread with the Bobcat.

Did I mention it was a rather sloppy day?

This is how it looked at the end of the day! And here is a video Andrew made of the process.

Happy birthday, Ellie!

I had started a post about running water and forgot to publish it, so if you missed it, scroll down 🙂 But today’s post is about my FIVE year old! We had our first party on the farm and it was a blast.

Ellie chose a rainbow theme for her birthday party. We had a blast doing all things rainbow! My sister-in-law Laura did the sign, and Ellie and I did the tutu together with the help of a DIY kit from Etsy.

We had a bonfire, and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows together.

I am just so excited that we have a pond! And a farm! And friends to share it with! This is my dream, right here: Showing hospitality to the people we love.
