Fourth of July and More

Well me made it back from our trip to IF. We had a really great time and enjoyed seeing all of the family. I wish I would have had more time but luckily I get to go back in a few weeks for my step brother Logan's wedding. I am photographing his wedding and I am really excited about it. This past trip was a real work trip. Three of my brothers are getting married and so I did all of their engagement photos. I did a pre-bridal session and my other step brother Andy and his wife Megan just had a baby and so I got to do a baby session too. It was a lot of fun and I got some really great images. It was fun to be there over the fourth and be able to celebrate with my family. We went to the parade in the morning and had a BBQ that afternoon. And another BBQ with my brothers Travis and Scott and their friends that evening. We ate a ton of good food. Instead of going to the fireworks in IF like I had planned, I ended up staying in Rexburg where my grandparents put on quite a show of fireworks. It was better than a lot of small town firework shows. And since Arlie is going through this fear stage we were able to sit in the car with my aunt Candice and her daughter and watch them through her sunroof. Maybe next year she will be better about the fireworks. I also got to go to my dad's cabin for a few days and spend some time at the lake. It was a lot of fun and Arlie loved going in the boat. She had a blast. My dad had a couple segways up there too and she had a blast riding that around with the help of Grandma and Aunt Allie.


She also loved playing in the water and had so much fun swimming with uncle Dylan. Here is another picture of her and Aunt Annie chilling on the boat dock.



My grandpa Henderson is in the hospital right now with some very serious injuries and we are praying that he pulls through with a full recovery but right now it is unknown what his fate will be. I had a chance to visit him in the hospital a couple of times and it was so sad for me to see him in the shape he was in. I guess whatever is meant to happen will happen. I just hate to see him suffer like this.

So I didn't get a chance to visit with too many friends. Sorry guys. It really was a crazy busy trip. And I really was planning on being there for the friend reunion but things came up last minute and I was unable to make it. It sounds like you guys had a lot of fun though. I did get to run into Katie Larson and Steph Sommers and it was so nice to see them.
Here are some of my favorite pictures that I took while I was home. Hope you like them. The first ones are of my step brother Dylan and Annie.





Here are some pictures of my brother Scott and his fiance Jen.




Here are my favorites of my step brother Logan and his fiance Allie.





Here are some cute baby pictures of my nephew Makoy.




I also got some gorgeous shots during the prebridal session but I will not be loading these until after the wedding because my brother is not allowed to see her in her wedding dress.
Anyway hope you like the pictures. I had so much fun doing them. Hope all is going well for everyone and that you are enjoying your summer.

Beautiful pictures!! I want you to do more for us but it's going to have to wait until we're back in Maryland. Let's see...Eliza's first year pics could be done about a month late, right? So, um, just schedule us in around all the holiday hustle and bustle. We'll be back around December 15th. How does that work for you? Seriously, we'll check with you later and find a time that works for some family pictures and her first year pics too. Miss you!
