This sweet couple was gifted an engagement session recently so we met up at mutual friend’s farm. I enjoyed visiting with them about how they met, how wedding planning was going and what they look forward to once they become husband and wife. Congratulations Dillon and Sara; I wish you the very best as you take this next step in life together!

Oh, this girl. She leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes. We’ve said that about her since day one and we can’t imagine our life without her. She definitely brings a liveliness to our family. I love her smile and her laugh. I can’t believe she hit double digits this spring. Where has the time gone? I have to admit she’s challenged me in ways I never wanted as a parent, yet I am also more blessed because she is my daughter. She is teaching me. We’re more alike than I first thought as she is the second-born and I am the first. However, parts of her personality definitely come from me.

I’ve seen her struggle with things that come easier to her siblings, yet also see her rise above challenges in ways I never imagined. She’s a helper and a hugger. I don’t think she’s ever met a stranger. I have watched her grow into her own kind of leader this year. We’ve always tried to be careful about comparing our kids as you really can’t compare them—they each of their own strengths, likes and dislikes, personalities. It’s fun to see her find things she’s good at and enjoys. I think that’s the thing I want most as a parent, to help each of my children be the best “them” they can be. Our little E, growing up faster than I want and despite all my attempts to keep her little. One thing is for sure; no matter how old she gets, I hope she never loses her sparkle!

Showing Livestock |Idaho Livestock Photography

We spent another fun, family weekend on the road at a junior livestock show. It’s a lot of work, but so worth it to see the kids compete, hang out with friends, and have fun.

E showed her heifer and two sheep this weekend. She had some tough competition and did a good job. Each time she goes into the ring she learns something new. Win or Learn, but never Lose is the motto of the Snake River Show Circuit, and we think it’s a great one to live by. We’re proud of how hard she worked. It was a long week with lots of early mornings and late nights, but the memories made are worth it.

MJ showed her two heifers and did a great job. We were excited to walk away with the top prizes at the show, but more importantly the girls made some new friends, did some things out of their comfort zones (participated in a livestock judging contest and gave oral reasons) and had fun!
