Since it’s now June, I thought it only appropriate to blog about our cutting down of the Christmas tree from last November. :) Finally playing catch up on more personal photos now that I’m officially on “maternity leave/baby watch” for the summer.

This Fall we ventured to a different Christmas tree farm than last year, because they were partnering with our church to give all proceeds to families in need within our area/church. Our adventure was had at Kraxberger Farms. They were very friendly and it was a beautiful place. It was hard to decide which tree to cut down, because honestly they were all so uniform and beautiful looking. I let Brian make the final decision and he and Brady sawed it down and hauled it to the truck. I think George had the most fun – he ran around and greeted everyone and had the biggest “smile” on his face the whole time.

My Dad, step mom, her mom, and the twins – Sam and Lisa, came to visit us from Texas for about 10 days last July. Yes… LAST July. I’m playing catch up on personal blogging after many months.

My dad joined us about 5 days into the visit, and I had LOTS of “Oregon Summer” activities planned for us to do during their visit. They were so happy to escape the Texas heat and experience our love for Oregon Summers. First up was peach picking at TK Orchards about 20 minutes South of us in Canby, Oregon.

There’s nothing like hand picking your own peaches off the tree and taking a big juicy bite in the middle of the summer. Ah, so dreamy. They had several varieties. I should really keep track of the ones I like best.  We picked a crate full and snacked on them throughout the week and made a iron skillet peach pie type dessert.

After we picked peaches, we picnicked and the kids ran around under the big filbert trees next to the peach orchard. It’s on my PHOTO SHOOT BUCKET LIST to do a portrait session under the big filbert trees!

You know it’s a good time when your kid has a dirt moustache by the time we leave. Here are some of my favorite images from our peach adventure!

Life is has been really fast and full since the beginning of (time) the summer and I honestly haven’t given myself much time to work on personal stuff since then. I shoot (thousands) of images and load them to my computer and let them sit until I get a chance to work on them. I start getting twitchy and feel a heavy weight when I don’t get to do my own personal photography/video work after months go by. SO… I took a couple hours to put together this video and my favorite images from our quick morning berry picking at Baggenstos Farm with my siblings, step mom and her mom in JULY. I know… it’s November. Sigh.   It’s a nice little flashback to the warm sunny gorgeous Oregon summer weather.  We had a blast during their summer visit – stay tuned for (A LOT) more summer images/videos soon.
