Indianna Last Summer: Part VII

So, we actually went spelunking while were were in Indiana (well sorta). We went on a tour of caves on a boat. And I picked up these cats in the gift shop as a joke. We thought it would be funny to try & capture them in a number of our photos & see if we noticed them. So keep you eyes open!! Dave didn't want to climb the tower, he doesn't like heights, so we included him in our pictures this way :) The tower we are on was quite the climb. They were originally used to watch for fires. I am glad it is not my job to climb up there everyday... Spot the cats? We got pretty silly about the cats. I didn't include all the pictures we took with them. I suppose it was just a good excuse to have a little fun & get all of these guys to pose for pictures. Holding the sun in you hands. Bruce just about got hit by a car while taking this photo, hence the crazy faces! No worries, no one was hurt during the making of these pictures. And the obsession with bridges continues. I just cannot help myself. Pictures by all of us!

Indianna Last Summer: Part VI

So the next day we ventured off the farm & decided to head downtown for dinner. We had the best pizza. It was nice to wander around a town I had never been to before. I did some serious people watching. These goofs didn't always cooperate when I was trying to get a few photos. Bless Rob's mom, sometimes her angles on pictures isn't quite on ;) Photos by Rob's mom & I!

Indianna Last Summer: Part V

So I had to split up these posts a little bit simply due to the huge number of photos that we took! I swear I will finally have all these posts up & hopefully I will eventually get caught up! After we were done running through corn we decided to make designs on the next lanterns we let off. I didn't manage to snap any pictures the second time we released them, but you get the idea from the first post. We also tried to get the perfect silhouette shot. Ha ha it seems silly, but we tried the night before & started to late, so as you can see we started earlier this time around, perhaps a bit too early... So, while we waited for the sun to set we decided it was time for a fire. We had just created the pit the day before, so we thought it was about time to put it to good use. The sky was so beautiful. Thankfully I caught a bit of it. Looking at these pictures now really makes me long for another trip down there. It really is so simple there. I miss the feeling of not having a care in the world other than what is for dinner. Hopefully this summer Rob & I will get a chance to go down there again. And all the waiting was worth it because we finally go that perfect shot! Photos by Rob & I

Indiana Last Summer: Part IV

For some reason it seemed like a great idea to frolic through the cornfield. I suppose since it was such a presence around the farmhouse that the allure was too strong for us to ignore. And, for the most part, it was fun. Although there were a few injuries (bleeding legs, bruised eyes).
The corn was so tall it towered over us! I felt like I was in that scene from the beginning of the LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring when Sam & Frodo are walking through Farmer Maggot's crops. It was so crazy!
As the sun started setting the light felt so warm. I like that you can get a sense of that in this picture.
