Day Trip to the Sunflower Field

Feeling refreshed starting this short, but jam packed week! We enjoyed the holiday weekend by checking out one of the most beautiful places in the area - the sunflower farm! There's nothing quite like seeing a field of sunflowers in full bloom! Colby Farms is absolutely breathtaking and I'm so glad we were able to check this one off our summer / fall bucket list! A couple years ago Gary and I went later in the season and this year going the second weekend that it was open was the best! You could definitely see the excitement in Sophia's eyes when we got there and she had no fear going up to the flowers even though there were tons of bees!  
About 45 minutes north of Boston and $10 will get you into the field and then you can roam until your hearts content!

After the sunflower farm we made the quick drive up to Newburyport for lunch at Lexie's which had some of the best burgers ever.

 
It was the most perfect day for a day trip & a great way to end the summer!

  5. I have never yet seen a sunflower farm - I want to so badly!!!!
    I'm actually shocked - I thought they grew more in the beginning of summer. Good to know they can grow this late in the year!!

  16. Such beautiful blue skies and the flowers are just STUNNING!! I don't think I'll probably ever get there because of the bees... so feel free to spam me with all the cutest pictures of Sophia in the flowers. <3

  17. These photos are just too cute! We didn't stop by Colby Farm when we went to Newburyport last summer. It's funny because we literally went this exact same weekend last year--I got the reminder on my phone!

  20. I've been wanting to go to this place. I e mailed my hubby the link to it, but he's going way this weekend & I'm not sure how long they will be in bloom. I love Newburyport too.

  21. That burger did look really yummy!
    I've never seen so many sunflowers in one place! Usually they are just a single or small cluster of them. A whole field of sunflowers looks so pretty!
