congratulations mark!

a few weeks ago mark asked me to remind him about the upcoming deadline for photos for his company's employee photo contest. he chose the photos to enter; I got them developed into 8x10 size; and he submitted them this past week. today was the official judging.

mark has always had an interest in photography. he consistently takes many more photos than I, trying for that perfect shot. seems like he may have found one.

the first entry is of connor at age 2 using an electric bubble maker while we were in hilton head on vacation.
the second is of spencer in 2006 at rock mountain bible camp. this has been a favorite photo of ours since it was developed. and now we're even more in love with it, because it...drum roll please...earned FIRST PLACE in the people category and BEST IN SHOW!!

how awesome is that?? when mark called this afternoon to share the good news, I could tell he was in shock. so excited. so surprised. so honored. so I say awesome job sweet! I'm so proud that you stepped out and tried something new!
