Happy Birthday, Tyler!

Here is Tyler! He helped with the fresh produce shopping at the Grower's Market. He counted 6 carrots, 6 potatoes, 6 onions, 6 Baby Bok Choy, bunches of leeks and purple broccoli. Can you guess how old Tyler is on April 14?! He is such a happy, sweet boy, and Tyler has an infectious laugh! We had a lot of fun getting ready for a birthday dinner on the farm!

Saturdays are a busy day for the Browns. They have a cupcake stand at the Grants Pass Grower's Market every Saturday. Ryan and Tyler help their Mama and supervise all of the fresh baked tasty treats.

The trio, Ryan, Tyler, and Anna are ready to eat. They made the center piece place mats for my birthday one year: Anna's hands, Tyler's vegies, Ryan's fruits! They are so sweet and a real keepsake.

The dinner of choice by the birthday boy: pork ribs and pork chops with BBQ sauce, mashed potatoes and carrots, purple broccoli (that turns green when it is cooking) black olives, and orange cottage cheese. That was the contraband! (A tub of cottage cheese, mandarin orange slices, whipped cream...the real stuff, and orange Jello powder mixed all together!) The orange Jello was a bigger hit than the orange potatoes!

Most of the partiers before dinner! The kids were ready to stick olives on the ends of their fingers and dig in!

Finally, the cake and candles! This is chocolate picnic cake that was a recipe handed down from my Nana. It is also called a Texas Sheet Cake and many other names, but it is chocolately, moist and very delicious! Tyler blew out six candles after a birthday song and some cha-cha-cha!

Giggling, laughing and so much fun as Daddy pulls and Ryan pushes the wagon around the farm!

Happy Family of Brownies!! Aiden, Anna, Tyler, and Ryan, what a wonderful day! Happy, Happy Birthday, Dear Tyler, Happy Birthday to you~
