Well, now that one entire year has passed since my last post, it would seem to be time to do an update. 2011 was a life changing and crazy year, to say the least. Lots of change, the largest being my daughter arriving 2 months earlier than expected. I could have never anticipated what new experiences or challenges 2011 would end up holding for me, but suffice it to say I am happy to greet 2012. The below images: one for each month of the year. The theme here is pretty blatant, but I unashamedly post these in love for my amazing daughter and how she made 2011 the most memorable year of my life.

Just before Christmas, Asha and I went on a trip to Leavenworth with our friends Vanessa and Josiah. During our time there, Josiah and I went snowshoeing a short drive out of the city. This was my first time strapping on snowshoes, which turned out to be more difficult to traverse in than I had realized! After following a forest road for some time, Josiah and I decided to take a side trail, which turned into creating our own route up and then down the surrounding terrain. Below are just a few images from our snowshoe adventure.

In October, I spent time with some family friends at the park. Carter and Julia, the kids pictured below, are two individuals with more unique personality, energy and love than most kids I have encountered! These photos only reflect a small part of them. These images were taken at Juanita Bay Park, a great place to go just about any time of year.
