I also get a look back at the year when I sort through the hundreds of photos I take to pick out the best ones for our family photo book. I already published some of the best photos of the year in other posts, but the photos below didn't find their way into a post – until now. Here are twelve more of my favorite photos from 2012:
|Our much needed Hawaiian vacation.|
|Our hike through the Hawaiian rain forest.|
We were told beforehand that it was an 'easy' hike.
|A honeybee visiting a California almond blossom.|
|Hydroponic forage at World Ag Expo in Tulare.|
|Some of the Girl Scouts and their parents relaxing in the pasture|
during their visit to our farm to learn about dairy farming.
|One of the hundred or so wood ticks I picked off the cows this summer.|
This year the ticks were the worst I've ever seen. Gross, I know.
|Summer fun for Dan.|
|A cat nap in the barn for Monika.|
|My view while manually flipping bales off the conveyor because|
the bale flipper wouldn't work. It was July. Yes, it was hot up there.
|Me and Trent Loos at Chick Day. Really funny guy. Great messages.|
|Thanksgiving: We're thankful for cousins!|
|Daphne's first portrait.|
2012 was a great year for us. We had a lot of fun with family and friends. The cows and crops did well. And we were blessed with a new family member.
OK, now 2012 can be over.
