Even though it was a bazillionty degrees on Sunday, we made it out to Buttonwood Farms for their annual Sunflowers for Wishes event, one of those things I’ve had on my “local stuff to experience” list for several years but somehow always managed to miss. They plant 15 acres of sunflowers and sell wagon rides and bouquets for $5 with all money going to the Make a Wish foundation. Fantastic photo op PLUS do-goody feelings? How can you resist?
I'm pretty sure those are the cows they get the milk for the amazing ice cream from. Unfortunately the line was at least 50 people long so we'll go back for the ice cream some other day.
I know the baby's not even pay attention but I think I look GREAT (minus armpit fat) so I'm posting it anyways. Vanity, thy name is 4 months pregnant in 95 degree heat.
Baby Evan like the wagon ride more than this photo seems to indicate.
There we a LOT of bees. Luckily, we're not allergic. I don't think.
Not a photo effect - they really did look like they were glowing.
NOW it's time for fun with photo filters.
I swear on all things cheese this photo is SOOC (straigh out of camera). I didn't adjust a single thing.
I'm sorry, I can't stop. They're just so pretty and happy and fun to do artsy photo stuff to.

I couldn't resist buying a couple bouquets. Sunflowers are just so...sunny. Brilliant, I know.
One more for good measure.
It was a good day.
p.s. Remember, the TerraCycle giveaway ends Thursday and there aren’t that many entries so the odds are pretty good you might win! All it takes is a comment! Trust me, entering means more to ME than it does to you – I’m just trying out the giveaway thing and would hate to discover it makes people hate me.
