it's been a busy year so far, here's some random bits and pieces of it in no particular order. unfortunately (for my workload) but fortunately (for our memories) this is only a small dent in the mountain of film i have waiting to process and scan.

sixteen years ago this stunning curly blonde haired 15 year old girl walked into high school church youth group and no joke, the moment I saw her I knew I was going to marry her. three years later we were married and a year after that we had grace. jaclyn turns 31 today which means she's officially known me over half her life. it's a testament to her patience, understanding, compassion, and grace that she's stuck by me all these years. she inspires me every day and enriches the lives of anyone who knows her. happy birthday my love!

we spent 10 days on the big island of hawaii with jaclyn's parents, her sisters, and our collective gaggle of children back in august. i've got way too many rolls of 35mm film waiting to be developed and scanned from the trip but i already made it through the few rolls of medium format i shot so here they are.
^ much to jasper's dismay, you can't get close enough to ride the sea turtles.
^ jasper was obsessed with finding fallen coconuts.
^ jaclyn's father wayne.
^ not sure why grace was squirting water on her face, but she sure thought it was funny.
^ jasper found more coconuts.
^ hiking through Kīlauea Iki Crater in volcanoes national park.
^ thanks for the photo grace :)
^ after 30 minutes of trying i threw in the towel on trying to split open the coconut jasper found, so he employed grandpa's help.
^ an hour later he had his coconut...and the most bestest cheesiest smile to go with it.
^ the whole reason we were all there, jaclyn's unbelievably amazing parents wayne and denise. they made and raised the perfect wife for me and brought us all to hawaii...i won the in-law lottery :)
