The Joy of Sunflowers




My good friend told me about a field of sunflowers in prime bloom on Monday. I was dying to go see the flowers. Yesterday I drove by the fields, oh. my. goodness. So beautiful! I immediately had a vision of a photoshoot set in my mind. Too bad Miss Ella is gone, we had to improvise and use only Amelia. No tea party with sunflowers this year. I am photographing a HS senior girl tomorrow, yep, we are going to the sunflower fields. I bathed Amelia and put the pretty white dress Catherine let us borrow and drove the family out to the fields at sunset. Amelia was acting sooooo funny. She loved the flowers and gave me some very silly faces. All for a bag of marshmallows.

Justin's department threw a huge picnic party yesterday afternoon. We enjoyed eating lunch with some of his coworkers. Justin had the rest of the afternoon off. I went to Walmart by myself. Amelia played with Lily at the park and later at her home. Justin and Phillip enjoyed a long afternoon nap. Maleia watched the kiddos (sleep) while we went with Greg, Matt, and Keith to see The Other Guys movie. Oh my, it was funny! Justin laughing was about as funny as the jokes. We all worked out our abs with the laughing.

The kids and I were at the park again this afternoon for lunch with the Relief Society sisters. It was HOT! Phillip is teething again, so is super boogery and clingy. Charity, Melissa, and kids should be here by dinner time. They are returning back home from visiting in Virginia. Amelia is very excited to host another Hotel Amelia.
