Sunflower Farm

Yesterday we went to Rutledge, GA to visit a Sunflower Farm.  It was 100 degrees - and it felt like it! There was no shade anywhere.  We toured the gardens, an old farm house, and got to pick a bucket full of sunflowers.  Lots of fun.

This pretend chicken looked so real that Sabrina was afraid to pet it:
She loved the animals made out of painted old car parts (she and Catherine poured water on themselves to cool off, so that is why her shirt is wet):
 Catherine smelling a yellow daisy:
Catherine cutting the leaves off a sunflower (you could pick as many as would fit in the bucket, so we had to squish them in):
 I have never seen so many sunflowers in my life - acres of them.  All pointing in the same direction.
The girls pretending they are in the American Gothic painting:

 My dad found a bunch of stems with some sunflower buds on them:
Here is my Dad hauling away our loot of sunflowers (it was heavy!)

My Dad was far more impressed with the tractor than the girls, but they did oblige him and stand/sit for a picture:
