The Padgett Family has a beautiful little farm (with a host of chickens and two gorgeous German Shepherds), sweetly tucked away near Astoria, Oregon. And my visit with them is one I will not soon forget.
Wes and Melissa go way back to when my family first started in 4-H, (we’re heavily involved in 4-H and you may remember me teaching photography class a 4-H event) as Wes was one of my brother’s archery teachers! And their family was such a fun group to visit with, as their light-hearted joking kept everyone in fun spirits the entire time. Their love and playfulness with each other was so fun to experience and someday when my siblings are all married, and even if we live on the other side of the world, I hope we can have the same fun and closeness they share!
Wes, Melissa and the rest of the Padgett Clan, thank you for having me over… I hope these pictures serve you all as an ever-present reminder of your encouragement, joy, and faithful ties to one other!
