Colorado Springs and Our Soldier

 This past weekend, I had the opportunity to fly to Colorado Springs with my 18 year old son.  We went there just so I could take photos of my baby brother and his wife and son, before he left for Afghanistan for 9 months.  I hadn't yet met my nephew, who is just 7 months old, and I hadn't seen my brother or his wife since their wedding in June of 2010.

We went to Garden of the Gods so that I could take photos of them, and I love how they turned out!  They wore blues and blacks, and I think their outfits look striking against the red rock backdrop.  I also took some photos of my brother with his uniform on.  I am so proud that he is serving in the Army!  Coming from a military family background, he is continuing the tradition, so to speak.  

We are praying every day for God's special protection over Chris and his unit from Fort Carson.  We are also praying for special protection for my sister-in-law, Tina, and their little man, as they move from Colorado Springs to Montana, to live with family while my brother is deployed.  We covet your prayers as well!

Pike's Peak, with snow blowing off of it.  Isn't it gorgeous?
Isn't he just the sweetest little guy ever to wear camo?

Don't you just LOVE this photo???  I DO!!!

Please pray for this family that we love so much!

Have a blessed day in Christ!
