Summers in Redding are hot...really HOT. But on this sweltering July evening my little girl and I decided to head out to a local park for some photos. When I'm not busy working or doing photography one of my other favorite hobbies is genealogy. I'm absolutely obsessed with it to be honest. I spend way too much time on Ancestry.com. But we've learned some pretty amazing things on there. One thing that we're pretty proud of is the fact that our children represent the 14th generation of our family born on this land. Members of both sides of our family have lived in this country for nearly 400 years! Anyhow, I hope you're all keeping cool and have a lovely holiday!
