to create our adoption profile i knew i wanted updated, professional photos. and there was no question as to who i'd as to take them.
i have been admiring my talented friend from college, kara, photography skills for years. and not only is she ridiculously talented, she gave a sweet deal on a photo session because, well you know, adoption is expensive. and she's sweet like that.
here are some of my favorite photos she took of my dear little family.

getting ready for big service project in august with my church group
we're back in trail running mode
love having sister time (especially when it involves yoga!)
sunrise flag ceremony & breakfast with our church group (aren't those little scouts the cutest!)
farmers market (we branched out & shared a handmade peaches & cream soda)
abbi is the unappointed neighborhood watch dog
pre-pioneer day bbq with gordon's mom's side of the family
his cousin, & hostess, served the best food. she never disappoints.
her family also owns a shaved ice shack, shavy jones. we went there for dessert. that may have been the highlight of my day (i love shaved ice, especially the kind with buried treasure - ice cream).
i love how many young kids there are in our family...it makes me so happy & excited for our future kiddos.
sunday dinner at my mom's (where the dog treats never stop!)
homemade caramel cashew ice cream
movie night & pizza
we've added a new person to our running team (my sis)
to celebrate pioneer day we saw the dark knight rises (with my dad aka the real batman). i cried 3 times. oh I love batman.
we also went to a new place for lunch. doolittle's deli. probably our new favorite sandwich shop.
