Around other parts of the country people are starting to see fall, but here in southern California, we are just now beginning to see some consistently good beach weather.  We have been to the beach a ton in the past few weeks, but this time was the very first time I remembered to bring my camera.  Which also means I took enough pictures to equal out all those other beach days I forgot.  And, Yes, I did have a hard time narrowing it down to only this many.  It’s a sickness.

I took a ton of Moseley, but he’s a baby… who doesn’t love those things.

My pics wouldn’t be complete with some serious vogue shots of Carmen.

Lee was the official surf instructor of the day.

The kids all took turns getting pushed into waves by Dave and Lee

Carmen hasn’t really taken to surfing much yet, but she tries so hard… it made me so proud of her.  You can see by the looks on her face she is terrified.  Part of that has to do with the fact that she can’t even swim yet, and that I am her mom…

I am sure not going pro any time soon either.

I did finally get up though, which was fun, since I’ve been trying for years unsuccessfully.

Autumn’s daughter Aubry really took to the surfing, and was doing a great job.

I would say the star of the day was mini-Lauren, oops I mean Kaia.  Carmen’s best friend Kaia (who is also only 4). She may as well have been birthed on a surf board.  From her first attempt she would paddle her little arms, and pop up and ride the wave forever.  It was very impressive.

She even tried to hang ten.  So funny and cute.

The kids love the beach, and can be entertained for hours on their own… it is the best.

End the day off with an awesome sunset, and a big fat burrito from chipotle… Perfect.
