Awhile back, a good friend texted me and asked if Sweet Pea and I would like to take a day and go with her to visit a lavender farm in Virginia. She said she would take a day off of work to make a whole fun day of it complete with a picnic. She even said there was bound to be good picture-taking. Friends? Adventure? Pictures? Food? Yes. Yes, please.
Our road trip rambled off the ever-hateful 66 and onto some of the gorgeous Virginia farm country I love. Call me biased, but I think the rolling rural farms of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast on a warm summer day are the prettiest part of the whole world. And we hadn't even gotten to the lavender yet!
The day was stiflingly hot, but we would not be phased. We took our lunches to the picnic area under a huge old tree and promised Sweet Pea that we would go back and pet the bunnies they had to share as soon as she ate her sandwich. Those bunnies were pretty much the highlight of her life.
The lavender fields? Not so much.
|"Mama! I soooooo hooooooooot!" :(|
We tried again for some pictures of Sweet Pea, but the poor thing was so hot and tired and was having none of it.
|Always with the fingers in her mouth.|
|How is she so sweet even when she's pouting?|
Oh, summer; we love you so!
