Roots are important to our family. The roots in which build a heritage. Our heritage runs deep, both for my husband and I. Both families are binding and strong. When Nathan and I vowed to be a family together, it was important to both of us that we continue this heritage of strong roots. Blakely will soon be three, and Rowen one. They both love weekends with grandparents. It’s rare that I actually take my camera to capture the beauty of our kids bonding with their grandparents, so I made sure to do so this weekend. The farm community is the foundation of which our Engelland family was built. Land, cattle, crops. It is where I was raised, and it is the place where these two kiddos explore the countryside with Papa atop a 4-wheeler, and where they swing on the front porch with Nana at sunset. And for that, I love all of the beauty captured tonight.
