A Special Day

Happy Birthday Kayla! 

Working in the field... puts a smile on her face!

The many faces of Kayla... and so many sides. She's a wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt, UCSB graduate, UW grad student, splunker, teacher, track coach, tri-athlete, and best of all... my middle daughter! And it wasn't too long ago someone told her that she would never walk again. Never underestimate the power of determination in one of my children. 
They're all awesome!

Modeling days...

She did it! Kayla and her Dad.

"I do! Kayla and Ryan."
Kayla, Miles and Ellis Happy Halloween!
