Boogie Boarding Girl

Tuesday, August 16, 2011
  Kate is really having fun boogie boarding.




She also loves just sitting in the sand and digging or looking out at the ocean.  
She just sings and entertains herself.

And we're so proud of cousin Ashton (who is not really an ocean guy).  We have somehow gotten him to enjoy the beach and ocean a bit.

Can you believe it Shelly?  He even boogie boarded?!

Will and Harry have found a little inlet where they spend hours catching crabs and little fish.  I tend to spend my time sitting at the water's edge with Kate or swimming with her at the pool.  So I don't have many beach photos of the boys. I need to work on that.   My sister grabbed a few with her point and shoot.


Harry and Aston have so much fun together.


This is what they get.  But we release it all.  It is just the thrill of the catch for the boys!



My sister took this shot of the pink and green kayaks.  Aren't they pretty and preppy?

Here is a little flip video of Kate boogie boarding (it is only 7 seconds).  Look at her huge grin. 


  1. What fun -- she looks like a natural on that boogie board!


  2. It looks like Kate is having loads of fun at the beach! Cute pictures!

  3. Is there anything that beautiful girl of yours can't do!?! TOO cute! She make ME wanna try it! ;) LOL!!

    Looks like some 'fun in the sun' memories being made for sure... those white sands sure look inviting!

    God bless! <><

  4. I absolutley love the look of this beach, such beautiful white sand and those sea cretaures look exotic!! Super shots Kim and yeah for Kate on the boogie board, looks like she is having the time of her life!


  5. Great action shots of Kate. This reminds me so much of our long weekend trips to OKI, but the water there is so beautiful and clear. You know know the east coast Atlantic looks.

    My boys love to crab and throw cast nets as well.

    Tomorrow we leave for our last long weekend before school starts. I am so not ready for fall. I am going to miss our summer beach trips so much. We go all year long, but it's just not the same.

  6. Looks like you all are having fun! Love the boogie board pics...Maggie is not that brave yet! At some point I will have to post our beach pictures...all 3 of our trips there...ugh, the one major downside of photographing others, my own families memories are suffering:( Hopefully once you get home we can catch up, I miss talking with you~

  7. Oh we love the ocean! I wonder why God won't send us to a coast somewhere to do missions? Beach bums need Jesus too!! lol

    Love all of the pictures, what a great summer!

  8. (sigh) I love the beach. It looks like everyone is having a wonderful time, and Kate really is a water baby, isn't she?!

    Gin =)

  9. Kim,
    It looks like you are having a wonderful vacation with your family!
    I love Kate's swimsuit, and I know a few little ones who would look too cute next to her in their matching suits. Thank you for your kind words and for your first email that began a very special journey. God is good.


Thank you for your kindness.
