Dave, Kayleigh & Ryken | Mahomet Family Photographer | Lake of the Woods

I enjoyed spending some time with Dave and his kids out at Lake of the Woods on Father’s Day to get a few pics of all three of them.  My youngest son was invited to Ryken's birthday party a couple years ago which was held at the BMX track in Farmer City.  Little did I know when I said yes to the birthday party invite, that we'd be saying yes to a whole lot more.  We pulled into the parking lot and Jake saw the gate drop and kids and adults beginning to race around the dirt track.   By his 'ohhhhhhhh yeah!!!' and the look in his eyes, I knew we were becoming a BMX family.  :-)   This is Jake's second full year and I'm happy he's found something he enjoys doing and thankful for a family whose experience goes back to the father's racing days as a kid to help guide us in the sport.  I'm used to seeing this whole family in BMX gear and ball caps so I hardly recognized them.  ha! XOXOXO,

Heather
