Mattober Fest 2014

Life has been going so fast and I figured my birthday would be a great time to stop and reflect back on an epic year.  Most importantly I have been blessed with an incredible family.  My son is now eleven and funnier than ever!  My wife not only is an amazing wife, but an incredible work partner.

Many years ago my family and I started celebrating the day I karate kicked my way into the world by holding Mattober Fest during the month of October.  More than just a birthday celebration, it is a revelry of all things awesome!  So without delay, here are some of the most memorable moments of my life this year while holding a camera.

I photographed LOTS of king cakes!
