Family Vacation 2012

So we were in need of some family time after my husband finished his Med Board process (over a year long process for us)and finished his time with the Army. We were blessed to take some much needed family time from the end of September through the middle of October when my husband left for hunting season(which I took that time to spend with my boys away from work which was a nice change to have that time). It was strange to not be working…but if you know me then you know I am always behind either my camera or on Instagram haha, so I pretty much document every moment of our life as a family. I thought I would share some of those fun moments with you. 🙂 Some are from my nikon, from instagram, and from our little point and shoot nikon(Yes we are a Nikon family)

On the road from Colorado to Bishop, California 🙂

As we were driving from Nevada into California there were so many cattle on the side of the road and I was so excited about this one who crossed the road and the next one watching us as we drove by haha

So I have been gone on vacation, but I am finally putting some pictures up from this SUPER FUN family fall shoot. Fall is one of my favorite seasons and I think you will get to see many of the reasons why with all the beautiful rich colors in this shoot.
