daddy-daughter days

it was that time of year again: daddy daughter camp out. not always appealing, but this year was way different. we were by the beach, fantastic food, friends, sweet girls, camp fire. just so much fun:)

so one of dad's favorite activities is skim-boarding. {{pretty much you ride a mini surfboard like thing on the shore line at the beach. or in the backyard on tarps if you are my dad.}} and actually it's his favorite activity in the summer which is off snowboard season {{duh}} ANYWAY! he loves it.

i, on the other hand, do not like being wet. or cold. well, wet AND cold is more like it. so i am perfectly content taking pictures on the sand and not be in the water. it was a really neat experience this time though because the best waves were friday night, so i had the opportunity to experiment with my camera and figure out how to get the best pictures. so! hope you liked them:)

goodbye summer

summer was toooooooo short this year!! i had a fun time though!
to wrap up the summer, the girls and i made an AMAZING FORT! seriously, amazing. well i guess first we went to ihop, and i spilled my water all over the table. our waitress asked if i wanted a kids cup:P but we had fun there! THEN the fort, and we watched the lorax! such a cute movie:) it was great! wrapped up in the tie blankets we made the other day, lounged around in pjs. it was fantastic!
