God may have us on a crooked journey, but we are richly blessed!

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