For me, the sunflowers made me take more time to enjoy my son, Ryan. Don't get me wrong I do enjoy him daily, but what I mean is really taking the time to be present in the moment. There is so much going on in our day to day lives that sometimes we don't take the time to slow down and enjoy the wonder of our little ones growing up and discovering the world.
This year they built a platform to overlook the flowers. This was pure genius. Yes, it was great idea to look at over the field, but what I loved about it was that Ryan played on it for an hour! He loved it. He went up and down on the steps, he ran down the ramp, and up the ramp. He met another little boy who joined him. They ran up and down giggling the whole time.
