The Deep, Deep

Here's a big surprise, we went to the beach today!  Okay, so it is not really news anymore for us to go to the beach but what made is extra special was that Gary came.  He had the night off (or so we thought) and headed out to the beach with us.  We went out around noon and figured that AJ would last and hour or so...

First she went about her usual business of 'surfing' in the breakers.  She is so independent that she just takes her board and heads out (goes waist or so deep) and the kicks hard to catch the waves.  All the while she has to stand in the current, withstand the pummeling of the waves and hold onto the board in the wind.  It is hard work!  It is hilarious because she never stops talking or singing the whole time.

After a bit she decided to go out into the deep, deep with Gary and Mckenna.  Then the real fun began!  The water was rough today and the current strong.  The waves were coming fast, one after another.  Ayden Jane was thrown off her board a few times and was crashed hard.  She thought it was all the greatest thing ever!  She had so much fun she cannot wait for the next time Gary can head out with us.

After a good 2 hours of the beach we headed for the pool.  I totally expected the crash at any moment but she kept on going.  We made it home between 3:30 and 4.  So, 3 or 4 hours of swimming!  Oh how I love summer!
