Pictures of Some Sunflowers and our Family During a Walk

"Then he carved all the walls of the temple all around, both the inner and outer sanctuaries, with carved figures of cherubim, palm trees, and open flowers."
1 Kings 6:29
We've had some sunflowers sprout up all over the yard from seeds we planted a couple of years ago. A couple of the sunflowers are right outside our kitchen window so we watch birds come and peck out the seeds during meals and while we work in the kitchen. One of my favorite birds has been the daddy Goldfinch.

Flowers are just so beautiful! :)

Some of our lavender flowers.

A flower along the road as we walked Tuesday night.
We love to go for family walks along our country road and visit the culdesac and horse farm within easy walking distance. Some of us ride bikes, others walk, and others push strollers or hold babies! :)

Lydia smelling a flower.
I (Kimber) illustrated for her a couple of months ago how to "smell," which consisted of me going "smell, smell" and then sniffing as LOUD as possible so she gets the idea of "sniffing." She caught on after awhile but most of the time she just sticks her nose right in the pollen, draws away, and rubs her nose with her hand. At least she gets the point (sort of! :).

Another view.

That's the reaction we normally get after she "sniffs."

Letting Hannah take a whiff.

Well, the pollen finally got to her! :)

The sun setting over our neighbors' (the Townsends) field.

The country way of getting around #2.
Daddy did Josiah first but he rode on the part where Mama's feet are (he had a towel wrapped around it so it wasn't so hard). Then I went on, then Hannah, and finally Mama. It's actually pretty fun! :) And, no, there were no accidents...Daddy's a great driver! ;)


Hannah burning some rubber.
Well, not really, those marks were just in the road. I'm working on getting different angles when I take pictures, so I got down on the ground and took some pictures (including the one above).

Our domicile.
All for Jesus,
