After Henry's early morning soccer game (Go Jayhawks!) and a visit to the park, a friend asked if we wanted to join her at the daffodil fields. And I never turn down an invite like that! So we spent the afternoon there, walking amongst the THOUSANDS of beautiful daffodils that have just bloomed. Then home again for a little rest before heading out again to have antiquities pictures taken and grab a bite to eat. Phew. I'm exhausted!
Have you seen the Antiquities pictures before? They are TOO cute. They dress the kids up in old fashioned clothes and print the pictures in sepia tone. Then they leave something bright like a rose or handkerchief to make it stand out. I didn't really feel like having the pictures taken since I don't plan on buying any of them.....it's for a fundraiser, so I get a 10 X 13 picture for $10 and then to buy more the packages are one hundred dollars and up (which is money I don't have for pictures right now!) It seemed like a big hassle to get all three kids ready, happy and cooperative for pictures when I'm only going to get one out of the whole deal.
But of course we went anyway and the pictures were absolutely adorable!!! I'm going to have to leave my checkbook at home when I go to preview the pictures or I'll be in trouble! :)
Here are a few pictures from the daffodil fields. The beautiful flowers are scattered on 28 acres of a 1000 acre ranch. There are also two lakes and plenty of bridges, stumps and other photo opportunities!Bridget with her friend Daxton
Here's the whole crew of kids that were with us. Henry is orange, Jonah is sitting down and Bridget is the one in pink, of course!
The moms. Andrea, T and me.
And here is the kid crew again. No babies in this one, but this one does have T's two foreign exchange students. The girl on the left is from Thailand and the girl on the right is from Germany.
