junkstock 2017 | a short story

In 2015 we started going to Junkstock, just my girls and me.  For her birthday, Bekah wanted me to drive to Omaha and spend the weekend with her and E.Beth and to go to Junkstock.  Well, that was a no-brainer!  So now it has become our little tradition.  Year three complete with hopefully many more to come.  I wouldn’t trade this time with them for anything in the world.

This year was just a “tad” on the muddy side.  But not to worry, we came prepared with rain boots and umbrellas.  Thankfully, we didn’t need the umbrellas.  Unfortunately, we had to carry them around the entire day.  Oh well.

Whenever one of these cuties turns two, we do a photo shoot playing at the farm.  It’s supposed to be mainly about the two-year-old, but we always end up getting the siblings as well.  I mean, how can I not when they are this cute?

Little miss was not too sure if she should trust me or not.  The session started out a little questionable.  And then she quickly decided that I was her friend and not quite as scary as she thought I may be.

Beautiful.  Stunning.  Sweet.  Kind.  Thoughtful.  Gentle.  Fun.  Adventurous.  These are just a few words that come to mind when I think of this senior.

We had so much fun at this session even up to the end.  I knew she was getting tired but was so kind at letting me get in just a few more shots.  Thanks for a great morning Skylar!

twenty | a short story

She turned twenty and I baked her a cake.  A few days later, on her actual birthday, she went to Denver with her best friend and family.  They took her out to dinner for her birthday.  I was happy for her that she got to go with them.  It was a far better birthday than we could have given her this year because of schedules and such.  And I couldn’t have asked for a better substitute family with whom she could spend her special day.
