a picture from life's other side

on father's day, my parents were at the store getting stuff for dinner, so my sister and i went driving (she needs her practice) and we remembered these alien space plants we saw the last time we went driving and went to find them.

after closer inspection, we learned that the alien space plants are actually.... onions!

while we were shooting here, we met a dog from the house across the street. he nearly knocked me over.

we decided to look for another spot to take some photos (got tired of creepers creepin).
we saw these geese in an orchard. just sitting there, while the sprinklers sprayed them with water.

it's not unusual to see people riding horses on the side of the road, or in the city, or anywhere really.

my little sister!
well, she's taller than me.

we invented some really fun games today. we invented one with badminton rackets and whiffle balls. then we invented the best one, which has many names:
big green volleyball
slap ball
beach ball
we played this game on 'teams'. my sister and i, against my dad and my brother. we didn't keep track of points, but we'd celebrate them. we just kind of had sides and hit the ball back and forth. we dove on the grass hit it on the roof (mostly me). and left sweaty, dirt and with grass cuts. best game.

my little brother.

my dad kept getting the ball stuck in the tree. i got it done once by throwing my shoe at it. he tried to do it, and got my shoe stuck too.

then i taught my brother how to do light painting with long exposures and a flashlight.

this is a very special giraffe.

this is a samsquatch. it's what we call my sister.


  1. You look adorable. I love the blue shirt. But the light painting pictures and the ones of your brother are the best. =D

  2. So THATS what an onion field looks like - who would have thunk it! I guess I've never thought too hard about the dwellings of onions... but it makes sense that they live underground.
    Your hair looks really cute - love the little side fringe and the twist at the back.

  3. Awww, this post is really fun! I like how you chronicled all the adventures of the day. The onion plants are cool...they look like something you'd see in a Dr. Seuss book. And your casual outfit is great. I love gingham and have been looking for more gingham shirts in thrift stores!

  4. Aw! Sistersss! I have a little sister. She's blonde, too. And taller than me. Haha. Sometimes, I hate her for it! I should have known those were onion plants! I only work with them every single day. I love your top!

  5. Oh goodness, those plants are incredible! <3 And I love your top! Be sure to enter my £100 ASOS giveaway!


  6. You'll have to show me how to do these when I'm down. The Giraffe is my favourite :)

  7. Sounds like such a fun day!

    These photos are incredible, by the way.

    *It rhymed.

  8. Gorgeous photos! You two look so beautiful! Love the blue shirt!

  9. Oh, I didn't know onion flowers were so pretty!

    And those camera tricks are awesome! ;D

  10. Ahh I adore your blouse, I have a obsession with all things gingham lately.

    The onion plants are very similar to some garlic ones we have here in Portugal, I guess it makes sense, they must be similar everywhere haha.


thanks for the comment! i love hearing what you have to say and try to take time to visit every blog!
