Thunder Lake

On our second day out West, we decided to go on a hike to a place called Thunder Lake. It was a 16 mile round-trip hike, and we almost died.

There was snow, some complaining, and even a black bear sighting.

The Fawn

Yesterday Caleb and I walked a new trail at the John J. Audubon Center, and while we saw a few beautiful birds and flowers, we saw a fawn that made the hike worth it. I had spotted a few deer, but couldn’t get close enough to take a good picture. Then this fawn came, and almost walked right up to us. It was such a surreal moment, and definitely one that I will remember for a long time.

Emma, Lilly, & Landon

Today was a day I’ve been looking forward to for a really long time. I had asked my friend Jennifer if she’d be willing to let me take pictures of her beautiful children for extra practice. We met at one of my favorite State parks, and somehow avoided the rain. We hiked up the trail, jumped over puddles, and walked through beautiful woods.

Emma, Lilly, and Landon are so well-behaved, hilarious, and were naturals in front of the camera! I had so much fun taking these pictures, and I’m so excited to share them with you here. 🙂
