someday when mike and i have more flexible schedules (will that ever happen?) it will be nice to leave for weekend trips a bit earlier on in the day. oh boy...late night long drives are not our favourite. but we awoke the next morning to beautiful corn fields sprawling in every direction and that permanent farm smell that follows you to even the shopping mall.
mike, my brother brendan and i had the chance to frolic around in a corn field near my aunt and uncles farm - just ten minutes before it was completely plowed down! it would've been absolutely terrifying to still be in there when the big combine came roaring along! crisis narrowly avoided.
ps. i quite enjoy the fact that mike kind of looks like he's a rock star in every one of these pictures. why not let your inner rockstar out in iowa? (mike claims its all the beard)
