"Let's Go Surfin Now...Even Blaise is Learnin How"!

Yes, I finally made it out in the water after a bit of a break, gosh my gills were a bit dried out! It was Awesome! Most of the time I was just paddling around and making sure that I wasn't in the way of all of the "good surfers". Blaise watched me from the shore with Philip and the binoculars ("so I could see you better Mommy" Blaise said). I was wearing a full wetsuit but got pretty hot and had to keep pouring water down my neck to cool off. Next time it's "bareback" for me ... that's without a wetsuit! We are planning on a beach day for Sunday with the girls so I'm excited! We can trade off watching the "chillin" while we try to catch some surf! Cowabunga Dude !!!!

This is actually my first video of Blaise. It is really funny because he wanted to get me wet so I had to keep moving around him. Lots of Fun!
Use quicktime to see this video. It's easy to download and it's Free!!

Surfer Training

So we are out at the beach again the other day and I say to Blaise "we are going to learn how to surf". He was all excited and just started jumping around in the sand. It was a playday so we didn't have the surfboard. Anyway, here is his "push up on the board" pose. I will have to get a video camera to capture all of his "groovy moves"!!

The Farmers Market

A fun family trip for us on Saturday morning is to go to the farmers market in town. Blaise loves
to carry the veggies all by himself! His favorite things to look at are all of the beautiful flowers. He , of course has to get up close and actually smell the pretty arrangements! I think that the main reason that he likes to go to the market is for the kettle corn! It is sooo yummy! I know that I look forward to it! As you can see the bag is about as big as Blaise!

A Day at the Beach

A beautiful day at the beach with Mr. Blaise. You would have thought that he would have been in the ocean since birth, but no, not until two weeks ago! Oh sure you say that I am "such the fish" "WHAT is the Deal"??? ok ok his gills are totally wet and he is ready to live on the sand! He had sooo much fun!! He loved it when the waves would come up and he would then run after the bubbles on the sand. One wave came up and knocked him over a bit and he just rolled over on his back and laughed!! As you can see is is nicely covered up and protected from the harsh rays of the sun. Oh sure when we were little we use to go to to Hampton Beach and run around all day without sunscreen (until they came out with Coppertone #4 ... whew that really did some good!) and of course would get a bit pink, of course thinking that the pink would somehow turn into a tan ... eventually! Anyhow, Blaise is really good about wearing his "getup" and I just tell him it is what all the surfers wear and then he thinks it is Cool. I'm shopping for a wetsuit so we can go out on the surfboard and paddle around a bit. It is hard to find one in his little size. Can't wait to venture back to the beach and build more castles. Lots of Fun!!
