Memorial Day Weekend Trip to the Hermann Farm

Another picture perfect day today for a road trip to Hermann, MO. Home of the many Missouri wineries along cobblestone streets, bluffs overlooking the Missouri River, bed & breakfasts and bus loads of tourists. However, with Emma in tow, we traveled beyond the wineries and into the country to have a fun day at the farm. Emma kept asking what animals she would see at the farm. I think she was disappointed to learn there wouldn't be cows, horses, chickens, etc...until she arrived to find heaven with caterpillars, humingbirds, baby birds and the dog, Lucy!

We had 5.5 hours of fresh air and she enjoyed every minute of being outside...riding the gator, throwing rocks in the creek, watching mommy in the tractor, BBQing and her favorite, fishing! Don't miss the video at the end...her reaction is priceless!

Emma's 3.5 year old Photos

I love capturing Emma's growth through great family photos. Thanks again to Kelly Ferguson Photography and to Kelly for capturing Emma's moods, facial expressions and silly behavior. We went to old downtown Webster Groves for this shoot and loved the quaintness and the city coming together.
