Gettin’ muddy in the mountains

We took a day trip with some friends up to the mountains west of Laramie. It was a really fun time! We brought our Teryx and had some fun driving through mud and down some bumpy trails. We took Nova with us because we knew she wouldn’t be able to handle being home all day without us (Ellie handles it just fine). Nova had a good time, but did get sick after a particularly bumpy trail. She bounced back quickly though!

I love the picture of the four of us in front of the Teryx looking mostly dismayed as we are holding up our muddy, wet goggles. Rick took the Teryx through a big, huge, deep mud puddle (the kids, Nova, and I watched from a safe distance). What we forgot to do was take our goggles off the goggle holders. As he went through the muddy hole, all four pairs fell off the holders and three of the pairs landed on the floor, in the muddy water that had collected on the floorboards. Guess whose goggles landed safely on the seat?

There were also some really beautiful wildflowers up there, so we had to stop and snap a picture of the kids standing among all the flowers.

Happy Independence Day!

Here we are at July 4th already! The summer is going by much too fast! We spent the afternoon hanging out around the house, then some friends came over, we ate some dinner, and we watched fireworks from our pasture. It really is so much nicer than fighting all the traffic to go watch them at Frontier Park. I gave Rheya a special festive hair-do today in honor of the holiday.

The pictures below were some that I took in June to promote my 4th of July Mini Sessions that I was offering through jaydub photography. That flag that is pictured flew over the US Capitol at some point between 1955 and 1960. It was then given to Congressman Edwin Keith Thomson who then gave it to my grandparents as a gift. Such a cool bit of history!

A fun time in D-town

It’s funny that we really don’t make it down to Denver as often as we probably should. There are tons of things to do there, but for some reason we really only make it down there a couple times a year. We decided to combine a couple of fun activities into a two-day mini vacation. I found out when the Phillies were going to be in Denver to play the Rockies and got us some tickets, then we also planned a day at The Denver Zoo. We spent some time (and money) at one of the big malls in Denver, we ate at Joe’s Crab Shack (near our hotel) and we also had some time to go to Bass Pro Shops. All in all, it was a fun weekend!

Baseball Cutie

We are planning on attending a Rockies v. Phillies game in Denver next month, so I asked my friend from Bean and Buddy Creations to whip up this cute little baseball shirt for Rheya. I love it! She will be wearing Vaughan’s Phillies hat for the game and will be so cute that even the Rockies fans are sure to notice.  :)

He’s a graduate!

Our little man has officially graduated from Kindergarten! It’s still so hard to believe, but we are very proud of him. When he started Kindergarten in August last year, he could only read a few words and spell his first name. Now to see him reading whole books is just amazing! His teacher this year was awesome and we really love his school. We are looking forward to seeing him grow and learn at this school!

New location

I always love to try out a new shooting location. This time I had an out-of-town client who was going to be in Ft. Collins visiting some family, so we arranged for a little mini session at North Shields Pond. While I had never been there before, she agreed that it would be a great spot. While Rheya and I were waiting for them to arrive, I tested out the scenery and lighting on her.
