surfs up

 Amber comes into my room this morning and says "lets go to the ocean!" I said well pack everything up!

While we were getting ready to go the animal shelter called me and asked me to foster 4 kittens that had just been dumped. I told the lady that I would be by after we were done at the beach.

Man I had a blast today just hanging out with the children.

 I took my kite down to the ocean and I had a hard time getting it airborne. There was a large group of marines eating lunch on the beach, and I just know they were watching me. I was going to be damned if I did not get the kite off the ground. Once it was up, it flew all day. I think I want another kite. A big Chinese dragon kite. I love the kite I have now because it is a dragonfly, but I think I am ready to move on.

Ryan and I went for a walk on the beach to look for some shells, but did not find any. So we decided to pick up all the trash on the beach. I explained to Ryan why we needed to this and he was like o.k.

Ryan has taken to body surfing and bogie boarding! I am so jazzed. I love the ocean and I love to swim. I think we have found something that both of us like to do.

After we were done at the ocean I swung by the animal shelter to pick up the kittens. I do not know the story behind these kittens other then they are small for their age. One of the kittens was cover in its own waste! The people that owned these kittens must not have taken very good care of them. I will try to get some pictures of them tomorrow.

I have a sudden craving for burger king. Lets see.... kittens are down for the night, Rusty and Ryan are sleeping, and Amber is with Sam. Yep I am going to burger king.

That was very worthwhile of you and Ryan to pick up trash on the beach and you are a wonderful person to take care of those abandoned kittens the way you do. Glad you had a nice day. Paula

I'm so glad Ryan has taken to boogie boarding and surfing.  Sounds like you guys had a great time at the beach.  I hope you got some Burger King!  Isn't it funny how sometimes we just have an unnatural craving for something like that?

Oh, I just love these pics.  These are some of the best surfing photos I have seen. The format shows off the ocean so well.  You look like a younger Sandra Bullock covered up with sand. Has anyone ever told you you look like her.  Is that her first name?  Your little boy looks like he is having so much fun.  Great idea, Amber!  Gerry
