John + Lauren, Tyler + Jenn

Since I wrote about my love for our annual fall camping trip a couple of days ago, it makes sense to post these photos now: my friends John and Lauren came out to visit me in the middle of the trip with Lauren's brother, Tyler, and his wife, Jenn, to get some photos taken as a surprise Christmas present for their parents. It was weird having people just pop in for a couple of hours in the middle of a camping trip, but it was awesome to show off the park to my friends. While everyone else in my group sat around the campfire and ate lunch, I wandered through the woods and prairie with this beautiful foursome. John and Lauren are also smack dab in the middle of the adoption process right now, so some of these photos came in handy for profile books to share with prospective birth mothers. Enjoy!
