I think this post officially catches me up on Adventures that I had some pics of that Jen had not posted. Huge thanks again to her for keeping our Family Adventure blog up to speed. As I referenced earlier, inspired by friend I have never met ( Jim Jaillet – http://blog.seattlepi.com/ramblinman/ ) , my goal is to post at least once a week if not daily.
Above is Mara getting the hang of surfing. I LOVE seeing my kids learn new skills and try things they did not know they could do. I am hoping by the end of the summer I can get her to throw the rope and go freestyle. She is such a cool chick.
Max and I were messing with each other. He kept trying to get me to crash (not an uncommon occurrence) so he could get a pic and I was focused on splashing him!
Above Max and Mara were goofing with the camera. This is a picture of Max up close and personal. He is such as awesome kid whose mind never stops. I love his kindness. He is the kid who is always the first one to give you a hug and tell you he loves you. Nothing better in life.
Above is simply a cool picture that one of the kids caught. Probably not some of my best air but I was on the water with my awesome family.
It is appropriate for me to wrap up with a sunset. This blog was started to capture and share our family adventures and sunsets inevitably have a roll in so many of these. From the bike ride up from Florida, to the countless breathtaking sunsets in Hawaii, to the nights wrapping it up on Table Rock, to this night which was simply a night on our local lake (Smithville). I live an incredibly blessed life. Sometimes I forget that. Thanks for letting me share these occasions with you. I hope if you are reading this you will make sure to prioritize living life as an Adventure in whatever way that means for you.
