A Quiet Destination

Out for a short drive this weekend, we found this quiet little spot with thick trees and dappled sunlight, where we stopped to eat lunch. It was actually quite dark in the shade we were in. So with mouths full of sunflower seeds the boys were off to see what they could find. There were mainly bugs everywhere! Taylor actually kept grabbing his pants and pulling them up so the bugs couldn’t jump on them. The funny part is he had shorts on. lol.

Now before you scroll through these and see the last picture, how many of you can put your hand in a fist, and stick your RING finger straight up? I can’t. As a matter of fact, out of the 6 of us, only my double jointed husband can. Β I know… the things we do for entertainment. Β πŸ™‚

Their favorite part of lunch…

And no he is not frowning… it’s the sunflower seeds Β πŸ™‚

    Hi Dawn,
    Toy are such an inspiration! I love your pictures, your website, and your blog. I’ve been crazy busy attending photography classes and setting up a new website. I’m in the process of trying to figure out what I want it to look like so when I saw this post I was once again motivated! Thanks for sharing this great experience through your blog.


    • You’re so sweet! And that’s a great kind of busy though! Shoot me a link when you have it set up! So excited for you Ana!! πŸ™‚

  2. Such sweet photos!! I especially love the spider web picture…very beautiful…One of my very favorite things to see in the morning when I hang out the wash, is a spider web with dew beads all around it especially if the sun catches it just right it looks so magical. I guess you could say I have a thing for spider webs.
    P.S. I can’t stick my ring finger straight up either…and I really tried..lol
    Happy Monday to ya:)

    • I totally agree on the spider webs! There’s something magical about finding one with water droplets on it.
      Lol! See! It’s hard to do! πŸ™‚

  3. Okay, I tried and I can’t do it either πŸ™‚

    Beautiful pictures, looks like the perfect spot to stop for lunch and some fun.
