This week was our pack blue and gold banquet. I always feel honored to be asked to take a few photos at events. Of course I was happy to be there for the kids. It’s a big night for those Cub Scouts moving up to be Boy Scouts and for those that received the Arrow Of Light. I don’t even know all the kids but I still feel so proud of what they’ve achieved. Caleb has only been part of the pack for 2 years and has done so much. I can’t imagine how it feels to be the parents of the kid who has completed the tasks to get to where these kids are. I hope the kids are as proud of themselves as I bet their parents are.
The night went so well and actually finished pretty much on time – a huge accomplishment for those who planned it! There were funny skits, amazing awards and most importantly to the boys, cake and ice cream to celebrate.
Here’s my mom in action! We are fully a Cub Scout family now that my. mom works for the organiztion.

Oh, the skits! All the kids that did skits were great! I knew what was coming with a few of them and they still managed to make me laugh. So much fun! And if you’ve ever tried to build a pyramid with boys, you know that this was a big win!
Special awards were handed out all night long. I even got a badge (although I’m not sure what it was for – I’m still new around Cub Scouts).
Check out the detail on the Arrow of Light award. One of the dads, Patrick, blessed these kids with these hand made beautifully detailed awards. He couldn’t make it to the event to see them accept them so I tried to take a bunch of photos for him. They really are amazing and he even went out of his way to make sure they had the right colors on them for each of the achievements that boys did (again, I’m not sure I’ve got the technical words down, so forgive me. Hopefully you get what I’m saying and can see the awesome effort Patrick put into these).
These Cub Scouts walked over the bridge to become Boy Scouts. They signed their names to the bridge after to officially be Boy Scouts!
Congrats again to all the scouts who got awards and moved up!
Meet the AdvenChair.
What an amazing wheelchair for off-roading adventures! There is no reason to be held back anymore! No longer do people need to miss out on adventures in this beautiful area we live in. This chair is the solution. It’s easy to use and opens up new opportunities like never before.
I got see first hand how this chair works during a family photography session. We took it off roading for photos. We couldn’t have gone to these beautiful places without it!

The Mama & Me Mother’s Day fundraiser was awesome! We had a great turn out and captured some amazing memories for these moms. Plus we raised over $1500 for Shepherd’s House Women’ and Children’s Center right here in Bend, Oregon. Here are a few of my favorite images from the event.
