to look like a
 tough kid...

 He is still sweeter than ever, 
 he still 
holds my hand in public.
But when I look at these pictures it reminds me that 
he is growing into a man..
long deep breath..sigh..

enough of that
now onto surfing...

 B and A 
have been really excited 
to come to Hawaii to catch some waves. 
They thought,
 Hawaii = easy surfing

Not so much.

Honestly they both haven't had much experience surfing any where but they were able to catch the white water in California then stand and surf in but that's about it.

The surfing waves here are far from the shore and you have to paddle pretty far out to catch any.

they were a little intimidated, 
I had to do a little convincing 
They were worried the other surfers would be bugged with them for being out there and they were kind of nervous to go out that far.

( and lets be honest I was a little nervous  that they were going out that far as well,
 luckily my camera has super zoom )

They finally got up the nerve to go for it..
They went out  
 waited and waited and waited.

( we were at a beginners spot and the other surfers were super nice,
 even gave the kids tips. So no need to be worried)

 B finally caught one!
( I was standing on the shore cheering,
 I am sure I looked like a ridiculous hoalie)

The pictures above and below were taken at Chuns Reef .
 "A" has gone out  2-3 times a week and has practiced really hard. 
His practice is paying off because
he was able to catch a ton of waves.

 I am sure it had to do a lot with the ocean, 
but it also has to with timing and paddling to catch it.

I am really proud of  both of them for
 teaching themselves
and for being
so patient!

 I think they have been bitten by the surf bug..
(hang loose)


  1. Oh good, now they can teach Connor :-)

  2. Those are great pics! I love the one of them paddling out together. I think Hawaii has made Bri even more handsome too!

  3. So cool! Bri is turning into a STUD! I don't think I'd have te gutts to surf, let's be honest I don't have the gutts to really get into the water either.

  4. How exciting! Bri looks so old in these pictures!
