Mark and his girls have been coming to see me for family pictures for years. In fact, last year’s pictures were some of my all time favorites. These girls really know how to jump on a bed!
This year the weather was so beautiful that it would have been a crime to be inside. We met up at Cougar Mountain trailhead, at my new favorite park. There are fences to sit on and rocks to climb and grass to run through. It’s a bit of a hike to get there but their Mama picked the perfect outfits and boots were part of the ensemble. I sure wish I’d had MY boots on. My poor Toms could have been wrung out with all the dew they collected!
This year I got to take some pictures with of the girls with their grandmother too. With the passing of my Dad this year I appreciate, even more, the pricelessness of photos with grandparents. I’m so glad Denise didn’t mind tromping through the grass either!
Mark is one of our state Senators and last year he sent holiday cards featuring his family pictures to all of his fellow senators. Apparently that is not done very often because he said this little act of kindness was met with surprise and pleasure. I can’t wait to see what he will be sending out this year!
Here are my favorite pictures…
