Summer Fun Photos, Week 7 – Surfing!!!

It is my goal to have fun this Summer with my family, and try to capture it all on camera in the process.

Last week was a rather momentous week for my husband. As a southern California native Greg grew up surfing, it is one of his passions in life. And ever since Chloe was born, it has been a dream of his to teach his children surf.

Last week this dream became a reality…




Her very first wave…


There was lots of watching and cheering from the sidelines…


And of course joyous celebration over our victories…


Maddy, Ben and I played in the sand in the meantime…



While Daddy taught Chloe how to hang ten…



She did AMAZING!!! A natural born surfer I tell ya, We were all cheering and rooting and screaming from the beach!!! Including other beach goers that were so happy watching a Father teach her daughter how to surf, it was truly precious.

Of course Madeline needed to do what her big sister was doing, and had a go at it as well!


She was so proud, she did a happy dance when she was done…


It was truly a great day at the beach! We had other photos from the past week, like getting our toe nails painted, reading in forts, going to the library & park, and of course the lemonade stand…but these beach photos were just so great I decided to focus on them instead!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing!
