Summer Fun: Sunflower Field

Every year, the kiddo and I create a summer bucket list of super duper fun activities to do. In our little corner of New England, there is always one thing that never ever moves off the list. A local dairy farm makes their own homemade ice cream. Every year, they plant a huge field of sunflowers, and for the whole week, 100% of their proceeds go to Make-a-Wish. We love supporting causes, and taking pictures in the beautiful field of flowers. I have been bringing the kiddo there since he was a new baby.
