birthdays and sunsets down on the farm

We had the privilege of enjoying a down-home sunset when we attended the birthday party for The Wife's uncle. He has a farm in Vermilion County, Illinois, where he grows mostly corn and soybeans. He turned 80 years old, and his daughter and two sons decided to throw him a surprise celebration. My mother-in-law baked and iced the cake, while The Wife added the decorations.

Obviously, The Wife's uncle is one of John Deere's biggest fans. Yes, that's him in the lower right corner.
