A "Sunny" Day

When my niece Allyson was little(er), she wanted a nick-name. My hubby and I had nick-named her older sister "Ce-Ce", because that was how she said her own name when she was like 2 years old. We'd say to Sydney, "What's your name again?" and she'd say, "Ce-Ce!" and we would laugh and say "Ce-Ce!" When Ally got old enough to notice she started saying "call me Ce-Ce, too!" She could tell that Sydney had a special name with us and she felt left out. Uncle Jim explained to her that we could call her "Sonny", because well, that was more fun then just "Ally"...get it? Ally--son = Sonny. Allyson wasn't convinced at first, but over time she warmed up to it and so we call her Sonny. Actually, Uncle Jim calls her that more than I do, but I like it too. 
She is a happy girl and so I always think of the name as "Sunny". 

Last week I had the opportunity to take Sunny to a Sunflower field! It was the perfect spot for her. Her beautiful face fit in perfectly with the sunflower faces and she actually ADDED beauty to the amazing and 
glorious vision of a gazillion sunflowers in 3 different fields. 

Enjoy these images from my visit to the Sunflowers. I actually visited on 2 separate days, that's why the sky looks different in a few of them. When I took Sunny the sky wasn't quite as blue and clear, but the results were just as pleasing. 

If you'd like to visit this field it's in Harford County, near Belair, 
on the corner of Hess Rd and Jarrettsville Pike. Last week it was in it's pique bloom and the weather was perfection! If you've missed it this year, be sure and go next year. I know I'll be there!
