the call of the wave

 This past week was a week of transformation for the girls. No longer are our beach trips filled with simple playing in the sand and splashes in the ocean. Our ladies are now wave seekers, seeking what the ocean is so willing to give, a thrill...a rush like no other! Who can blame them, their dad spent his entire youth getting sucked into the call of the wave (frankly, if it wasn't a wave that broke their daddy's neck, he would still be answering it's call) and their mom pretty much would spend every free moment with her toes in the sand. It's in their jeans, so it was no surprise when Lola and Ellie both tried boogie boarding this past week and got hooked, so much so that they have been begging to go back to the beach again and again simply to get back on those boards.  

The girls' first attempt was when we went to Coronado Beach with their friend Ella. 
Lola giving it a go!

Ella gave it a go too!
 Ellie didn't attempt boarding this day until my camera was put away.
Well when their bodies were too tired to keep tackling the waves they resorted to the next best thing! 

 Lola, Ella, and Ellie: sun kissed beach beauties in purple all cleaned up after a fun day at the shore. 
Back at it again, this time it was at Moonlight Beach with their friends Declan, Lexi, and their cousins. 
I had fun helping the girls get into it. Ellie giving it a go!
 Lola perfecting her skills. 

 Little boarders, Lexi and Ella were having a blast too! 

 Wipe Out!

 Pure Joy!

These three ladies, Lola, Emma, and Lilly spent a good part of the afternoon together exploring the waves and figuring it out. They had so much fun, so much so that Lola will not stop talking about when she gets to go back and board with them! 
  Declan is becoming a master at body surfing, braving the deeper waters 
and can teach the girls a few things. 

Off to Ocean Beach, after the girls begged and begged daddy to take them to the beach so he too can see them on the boogie board.

Summer days never get old!
The girls and I are loving our days off and the free time to explore, especially when it comes to exploring the ocean and all it has to offer.
