My family has spent many days at the beach but this one was special.
My husbands Aunt invited us to a beach house in Oxnard. We spent the day in and out of the water, playing ball on the beach, bike riding (and a bicycle built for 2 riding!!) and of course hanging out with family.
Since that weekend my kids, and I, have been boogie boarding weekly! Soo much fun.
Excited for many more beach days, and shoots, before the year ends!
My daughter being in a cast was not exactly how we expected to spend our winter break. I was thinking of taking the kids to the snow while we were in Northern California. Possibly even snowboarding. When Kara came home with an injured elbow we had to change out plans a bit! So instead, we started our winter break a few days early and took it easy! She was such a trooper about the cast. She even went to see Santa (someone who she is normally not very fond of) and let him sign it! On the day her cast (filled with art and well wishes from her friends, family and Santa!) was the be removed I took some time to photographer her with it. It was a fun way to celebrate her healing and how brave she was those 2 weeks!
My daughter recently started taking ballet and tap at Sophie's Dance in Los Angeles. Dance class day has become the highlight of our week. My husband and I walk her in her precious dance outfit to class. We stand at the parents window with the biggest smiles as our little ballerina dances her heart out. When class is over and she runs to us with proud open arms our hearts melt. Expect to see more of these because I can not get enough of my little blue ballerina.
