Fathers Day

We had such a great fathers day!! The kids always get so excited about celebrating anything!  We are so thankful for Kurtis.  He is such a great father and husband.  He is our superhero, has Hannah says!! 

We had a super bad storm a few weeks ago and the wind somehow managed to blow our tramp onto our deck!  It was super scary!! The next day Kurtis put it on the grass but could not flip it over without help, so Hannah used it as her "gymnastics" floor!

After some of my shoots I watch the sun set.  I so thankful for the peace, beauty, and warmth that surrounds me for those few minuets. Minnesota is so beautiful in the summer, rolling green hills, bright green trees, elegant farmsteads.  It really is picturesque!

Summer Bucket List #1 - outdoor movie night

The kids and I made a summer bucket list (something fun to do each day of summer)!  Outdoor movie night was at the top of our list! I thought that the perfect day for this would be the day the kids got out of school!  We invited anyone and everyone to come watch "Honey I Shrunk the Kids", eat popcorn and snuggle with their blankets and pillows on the grass!  It was such a hoot to see the kids get so excited.  We will differently do this again!! And next time I will remember to take more pictures!

Playing before the movie started!
