This place. There is something about Oakley that is a little magical. Small town in the middle of nowhere, fields for miles and pure country living. It is pretty perfect up there. Deep down a part of me that wants to be a cowgirl. The Oakley rodeo stuck fast as a family tradition the first time we went so many years ago. We love rodeos, especially this one. I couldn't resist a little mini shoot with Brynn all dressed up in her denim vest. The tall grass was so pretty and the rosy sunset cast the perfect lighting! I am lucky to get a shot of her looking at the camera these days, and most of those shots consist of the funny faces she likes to pull. The picture of her and daddy walking into the sunset towards the rodeo arena snatched my breath away. Perfect daddy daughter moment. They share a special kind of love. The rodeo was great as always, the bulls were on fire and scored 9 to 0 against the cowboys. I think that is the first time I have ever seen a rodeo go without a single cowboy making it to 8 seconds on a bull! We ended the night with fireworks and headed to the cabin for a good night sleep. We had a great time riding four wheelers with the Taylor's and had a yummy bbq before the rodeo events began. Maddie kicked down the door to the haunted cabin which was probably the highlight of Caden's day. I mean, what ninja turtle obsessed, little boy wouldn't die and go to heaven watching a martial arts world champion, not much taller than him, kick down the door to a house. He was in pure awe and wouldn't stop talking about it. 
The entire day was pretty perfect and the best kick off to our Independence Day celebration!
