Time to surf! My Aunt Donna, Uncle Bob and kids came in for the day to visit and go to the beach. So glad they did! I failed to catch a pic of precious Erin, but got the rest of the fam on film.
First, Carter and Bob head out to sea. Carter had not surfed since Hawaii in 2004, where Bob basically took him out on the board and surfed with him. It was very cool! So, really, this was his first time to do it on his own.
Cam and Jack. Sweet Jack was so interested in Cam. Older cousins are always fascinating.
Lots of direction from Bob. No better person to learn from. He's a pro and surfs all over the world!
Look at our baby go.
Jack stayed busy on the beach.
Carter really took to it well. By the end of the first day, he was paddling out and got up all by himself.

In a sand pit. Messy, messy.....we'll have sand in our house for weeks once we unpack. Totally worth it.
Lovely La Jolla Shores Beach. Perfect for kids to surf....voted one of the best family beaches in the U.S.
Jack and Lainey do not care for sea weed.
Caroline with the little ones.
Aunt Donna introduced a very simple game.....she didn't even know it would be a game, actually.....get your hands dirty and then wash them off in the shallow water. Brilliant!

More time on the board.
A couple of videos....each about 5 seconds......showing Carter surfing....
