It doesn't happen often or all the time, but my husband occasionally has to travel for his job. Granted, he has many weeknights where he attends one musical function or another, but once in a while he has to go on extended trips away to escort talented students to big festivals. This year, he had a student make it to an all-East festival in Connecticut and two students make it to a state festival in Erie, PA.
All that traveling is hard on him. He loves to be at home. He hates to be away from us. And I hate to have him away. But as the song says, "Loving a music man ain't always what it's supposed to be..."
Rather than sit around and mope, though, I packed up the little guy and my camera and headed into the middle of farm country to visit my parents. It was so nice to spend time with them. It was so nice to grab my camera and head outside to explore the farm. I didn't take a ton of pictures because we were so busy doing other things, but I did get some great shots that I'd like to share with you!

"Are we done yet?"
It is rare, very rare, but on this occasion, I actually out-paced my little guy. I have a couple other pictures processed, but I'm saving those for later as they are a part of a larger series. And I have several more from our explorations to process, as well. I'm trying not to process them all at once, however; I don't know when my next photo safari will take place!!
