Boys & Water Equals Fun!

Some boys just know how to have fun!  Our family was in Bowler Wisconsin visiting family.  While we were there we spent a wonderful afternoon at the Bowler Ranger Station.  A wonderful location for a photographer.  Auntie Colleen showed us the beautiful park.  She brought along her two sweet grandkids.  Brianna helped Amber and I capture senior portraits of Amber.  Of course I couldn’t resist taking pictures of the two boys.  They sure had fun playing in that stream while waiting on me.

Kindness-The Spirit of Christmas

Our family has been recipiants of kindness over the last several months.  In each case it has been humbling….and teaches one lessons.  In recent days we’ve had some big ones come by friends and people I work for.  It has made me examine my own heart.  This kindness makes me appreciate the good people we seem surrounded by.  I certainly desire to have that trait too and shall continue to work on it for the rest of my life.  Anyhow this has been on my mind which inspired me to create this page to share with you.

What a Family

Yep, this is one great family!  They know how to have fun with each other.  I love seeing that and capturing it through the camera lens.  These photographs capture that fun.  I’ve known Peggy for a long time and she is one of the most devoted mothers I know.  These pictures were taken the day after Thanksgiving and I’m now just getting them posted.

Park County Fair

Recently I had a request for some pictures taken at the Park County Fair.  Anyhow it brought back some wonderful memories of this past summer.  The memories of the time spent with those that share the same interest as I.

In this case it was being owners of goats and parents of children.  Most parents of 4-H children is trying to help their kids to learn the value of something like caring for animals and the responsibilities it goes with it.

I enjoy visiting with the youth and parents that share the goat barn with us.  They are a great group of people in Park County. One of these young ladies happened to be holding and loving her baby goat alot.  It was the sweetest thing to watch the two together.  So naturally I had to take pictures.  So here is some pictures of her with her little baby goat.

Greater Wisdom…

This thought came off of a bumper sticker of a fellow worker of mine.  I loved it, wrote it down and decided to use this as the thought for the day.  It’s a good one.
