We shot a wedding while we were in Missouri. It was a small, outdoor wedding and it rained like crazy right before, but we got lucky and the clouds cleared away just in time. Then in typical Missouri fashion it was hot and muggy. Above you see the father of the bride and the bride’s daughter.
After shooting Sara and Michael’s wedding (you can see more photos here) we enjoyed the drive back to my parents’. It was a good two hour drive but very scenic.
We found these miniature-people-house birdhouses in a Monett park. Trivia - My son Gage was born in Monett with the help of a midwife but when he was little he liked to tell people he was born in “the airplane park”, this is the same park.
If I were a bird I would want to live in this one. Although all of them have great details.
Stay away from these guys, they hurt bunches! I remember, as a child I scooped a wasp out of my swimming pool not knowing they could even sting when they’re dead. Ow!
We saw a lot of daisies but we also saw a bunch of these tiny versions. The blooms are about the size of a dime, maybe smaller.
We didn’t do much hiking because, well see that path towards the right side of the photo? Uh, yeah, I actually found a weed taller than me! These daisy mixes were about hip high.
But we did take some time to smell some flowers.
We kept seeing purple flowers along the ditches and at first we thought they were water irises but once we got close we saw they were Spiderwort. I just love the whimsy ways of that plant.
One place we stopped I kept hearing splashing in the water and finally got the courage to look. Apparently, even the cows thought it was a hot day.
