cascade springs

Saturday was Kaden's birthday so we took him to all the places his little life began. First we went up Provo Canyon to the spot where his dad proposed to his mom. I REALLY wanted to take a picture of the very picnic table where it all happened, but a family was camped out on it and I didn't have the guts to ask them to leave :) Next we took him to the place of his namesake: CasCADE Springs. We told him how ten years ago we thought we were being so original and so clever when we named him KADEn--after the place his parents went on their first date. Little did we know that every other kid his age would be named the same thing!
Kaden reminds us of everything good in our lives...of our first date, of our eternal marriage, of our love for each other. I hope Kaden always remembers that the love of our family will run clear and strong forever, just like the endless rushing of this beautiful spring water. We love you Kaden!

that is so very sweet. Thanks for your comments! I used my 50 mm 1.4and kept it at 2.4 for the indoor shots. BTW, I do believe we go to the same church:)

There may be other Kades, but not for the same original reason! His name is still very unique because of that. The photos are gorgeous. I especially love the first waterfall one. The one of Kade is GREAT too. It doesn't hurt that he is already such a handsome kid to begin with!

This is so cute...and if it makes you feel any better, your Kaden is the only Kaden I know!
