The Sunday before the awful flood I took the girls up to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.  My intention was to capture a few images for our Christmas cards. Well if you are a parent ... photographer ... parent photographer ... ever been around a child ... or kept a safe distance and watched ... well you know it doesn't always go as planned.

Before we could get any good pictures we had to go through this....

I am abundantly blessed with these 3 girls and all that they bring into my life. Even those hard moments when things don't go just as you plan, you've gotta just keep swimming.
