Scroll to the bottom to read about the prize!













So I am trying to figure out what pictures to enter into fairs this year. I always do the Lynden Fair (only because its closest) but they only let you pick 1 picture, and there is never any categories. So it is really up in the air for what the judges are looking for. Its been pretty random every year. I did actually win one year. A really cool big, huge ribbon, and ya know what happened?!! Some dumb idiot STOLE IT! Yes, I was so proud of that ribbon, but it was gone when I went to pick up my picture. So disappointing! Anyway...I really need help figuring out which one to pick. I may enter in some of the other fairs, as they have categories and you can enter more than one, but for now, I just need to pick a picture and get it ordered. So help me please! If you comment and vote on which one you like the best, I will put names in a hat and whoever gets drawn gets a Starbucks card, or Woods, your choice. So don't be shy, I know your out there reading this. Nothing brings people to comment like a prize. Email me if you like or comment on this page. Oh yeah, and if you like a picture that I seem to have forgotten on here, let me know. I quickly went through my albums, so I know I missed something!

Wedding shoot

Yesterday I spent the day shooting a wedding for my friend Lindy. While she hired me before she knew me, we ended up being in the same Bunko group and getting to know her. Sorry, I have no pictures of the wedding quite yet, I will put a sneak peak up later, I have tons of photos to go through and edit. This should take me a good two weeks. In between editing wedding stuff I have a couple other family shoots next week too. So after 8+ hours in the 80 degree weather, wearing shoes I probably should have done without, and carrying about 30 pounds around my neck, I feel like I have been beat up, hungover, and haven't slept in days. Today, I am spending the day laying on the couch, going through photographs, even though my house is in serious need of some TLC. Anyway, more to come on the wedding!

Katies Cupcake shop

I was testing out a new camera today for the wedding this weekend. You will have to take a look at my photo blog HERE to view them. The file size is huge so it took forever to upload them.

new lens

I rented a new lens for the wedding I am shooting on Saturday. I only got about 5 minutes outside before it started to rain again, but I think this might be my new favorite lens! I might just have to have it! I can get super close which is fantastic and its also a wide angle. Fabulous! I love it!

Our new baby

We adopted a beautiful blond baby girl! Her name is Bella! I know, I am crazy right? Another baby!

This little cutie sat between Davis and Dane the whole way home, even tolerated being passed back and forth between the two boys and I am sure they werent the most gentle.

4th of July

Another fabulous 4th of July spent with the Kate and Josh and kids. Tired, lots to do today, so just pictures of the evening.

I haven't had a whole lot of time to write lately. Mostly we have just been busy with the weather being so nice, but I hate to go too long without pictures or stories. I am doing the blog for my kids. Someday I will get all of these posts into a book so my kids will be able to look back on all we did and what I was thinking during those times. I tried to do the journal once upon a time, but just never stuck. I did scrap booking, but that was a lot of work with 4 kids and it kind of costs a lot! So anyway, I have camping pictures that I haven't posted, I will try to get to those this week, but I will try to do a couple different post with the last couple days of hanging out with friends. Here is today's pics. My friend Karen and Amara and I took the kids to a newer county park in the Birch Bay area. It was a little hike but we all made it and had some lunch and then the kids tried to build some forts out of driftwood.
