Happy Birthday Daddy!

We had a great time celebrating my father's belated 80th birthday last night. Despite the forecast of thunder showers throughout the week we dodged them two nights in a row. The Bevans family shared their home and their land with us so we could celebrate in style.

He loved the cake and he is actually going to take those decorations home. I thought they were appropriate considering the landscape and his love of horses.

Group shot, except for the photographer Dixie. Joy and Denver are great people and the hardest working pair I know. It has been so few and far between for family get togethers so celebrations like this are a real treat . We did miss the rest of you though. David, Mary Ann, Jake, Sean, Kelly, Caleb, Brad and Laurel, along with Susie. See, we are missing a ton of people.

Clark and grandpa. Love this picture.

Of course we had to take advantage of the weather and the gophers. Man Dixie has a ton of gophers on her land, no lie. Our homestead/home quarter is just not happening for us this year. We shot over 100 between all of us. Mark and I were a little late, but we managed to shoot over 35 between the two of us.

Love Love Love this photo. Now this is my father! Denim jeans, a pick up truck, and the rolling hills. I am framing this!

Happy Birthday Daddy!
We love you!
You are the best!

btw i loved the pics of the rainbow and the nature pics there... not sure if they are better than the beach, but they rank pretty close. :)
