Wordless Wednesday (on a Tuesday) :)


One of my favorite pictures from the long weekend we had not too far back. My granddaughter came to stay with us for a few days, and her Uncle and his fiancée came with us to the beach. She was apprehensive at first, and then she loved it. On the car ride home, all she could talk about was how 'big of a girl' she was and that she 'really, really went surfing with her Uncle Josh!" Believe me when I say my cup runneth over. :)

That is so cute! There's nothing like a day at the beach. I'm glad she was able to relax and enjoy it.

What a great photo and memory! We're hoping to get to the beach this summer - even for a day. I'm hoping my son loves it again (because he had one summer where he hated the water.)

Secondary Roads said...

Wow! That looks like fun.

Parenting Patch said...

What a great photo! Our weather here today is cool again. While I do not want horrible hot weather, I would appreciate some 80-degree days for a while.

Sometimes I hate to go in (seaweed...jellies) but most days I love it.

mail4rosey said...

Rain or heat...I don't have a complaint. It's better than ice, cold and/or snow. ❄ :)

Divya Mathur said...

TOO cute. I love getting to watch young ones experience something for the very first time. It's why I love being a teacher!

That is one of many good reasons to love being a teacher.

Awww... your granddaughter is so sweet. Her uncle made sure she did have a great time at the beach. You are blessed to have such a closely knit family!

My Teen Guide said...

I am happy to see how close your family is. Your granddaughter looked like she did have a good time. So brave to ride the waves, because she knows her uncle's got her back.
