a bright, sun shiny day

The sunflowers were a little droopy when we went over this morning, but I think you still get the idea of how spectacular this sunflower field is. The two adults in this photo could not agree on which of the admittedly mediocre photos was the best, but I run this blog and so I got to choose which ones to post.

Gulliver was less than thrilled about the trip and refused to show off his winning smile. Also, it is getting very obvious that it is time to give that little boy a little haircut.
It also seems like as good a time as any to just go ahead and mention that I'm pregnant and we are expecting another baby boy in about 10 weeks. I don't know how we are going to wrestle two small things (with smiles, of course) into the sunflower field next year.

the field is yellow already for pictures

For those of you here in Kansas City, the sunflowers I've taken pictures of the last two years are in bloom this week. Click here for the blog of the farmer's wife for a map. If the weather holds you will get to see our yearly pictures come up on the blog in the next week or so. Because I know you've just been waiting around for that.
