Sunflower Maze

While on Facebook one day, I saw posts made by different people about a sunflower maze. I’ve always been fascinated by sunflowers. I think they’re beautiful and am amazed at their height. I did some research and learned that they plant two crops and they were between them. Which meant the first crop was dying off and the second crop wasn’t completely bloomed. I had no idea what we would see, but it was our only day to go, so I got the address and grabbed Cheri to go with us. It was a little longer of a drive than I thought, but we made it.

I took more pics. You can check them out in the July album.

Dragons and Dinos!

When I heard that the Chicago Field Museum of Natural History was bringing in the Jurrasic World exhibit, I knew I wanted to go. So I planned a trip up to go with Nate and Kimberly and the girls. Then I roped Nicki into going with me so I didn’t have to drive all that way alone. 🙂

On the road!

First we spent the afternoon at Navy Pier. We took a ride on the Seadog, did a photo shoot on the Pier, rode the Ferris Wheel and the swings and then had dinner with Nate, Kimberly and the girls before heading to Jurrasic World!

Seadog ride!

It’s time!!

This dinosaur greeted us when we walked in and it followed us around! Totally blown away!

The next day we headed to Brookfield Zoo where I read you could see a real komodo dragon! Since Patrick has been into dragons and he really wants to see a komodo dragon, I jumped at the chance!

Unfortunately, the komodo dragon was just a couple of years old and really small. See if you can find it in the picture: We had a great time! You can see ALL the pics in the June album.
