Day at the Farm

I told you yesterday that we made a little trip to the Marr Farm in Columbus, IN over the weekend. This farm has to be one of my favorite places in Indiana so far {runner up to Lamb Lake}. There's a beautiful, vivid "secret garden" as we like to call it, full of exotic flowers and a cute little bench lightly dusted in moss. I could sit there for hours with a good book if I wouldn't get eaten alive by mosquitoes. There are also numerous barns filled to the ceiling with trinkets and antiques. Not to mention Uncle Frank lives in one that Tyler and I set up tent next to. I haven't heard the full story on this, but if you can survive one night in Uncle Frank's Barn, by yourself, no phone - you get $100. I don't think anyone has ever succeeded. More on that later. 

There's also a sick Continental parked on part of their 1,000 acres of property. It needs a complete restoration, but the sweet suicide doors would be worth the time and effort. It did make for a great prop though in our mini photo shoot. I wissshhhh I brought my camera charger so I could have taken different photos of us skeet shooting, skipping rocks at the creek, grilling out, and all that jazz. But I failed. 

Hopefully you enjoy the pictures we were able to capture. I love this dress that I've barely worn. It's the prettiest periwinkle-grey and I'm a sucker for high-low hem dresses. My panama hat is the newest addition to my hat collection, which saved my nose from frying yet again while floating in the pool for hours {see my neck tan lines from the previous burn?!}. Gotta love stylish and practical items :)
