As promised I’ll be doing a bit of jumping around with the blog posts. Today we’ll be flashing back to August of this year, when Keane took part in his first Wakeboarding Camp. He’s been a little obsessed with learning to wakeboard since his 7th birthday party last summer, when he and his friends got to give it a go. So this year we signed him and his friend Ryder up for a week of wakeboarding camp. And he loved it! On the final day of the camp, parents go to hangout and watch. Applauding and cheering at how much the kids had learned and progressed in one short week. Of course I was there with my camera in tow to capture all of the wakeboarding action.

Camp started at 7am every day. Here Keane and his friend Ryder get equipped.

A board almost as big as himself.

Ready to rock.

There he goes.

Looking like a pro.

So impressed with how well he did. Made it look easy.

Next up Ryder.

Halloween 2020

November 1, 2020

It was a Minecraft/Ocean Halloween combo for the family this year. Keane was Steve, a character from Minecraft and Daddy was dressed in his best Diamond Armor. Cullen and I teamed up to represent all things ocean. For the 3rd year in a row, Cullen was a shark and I was a squid. Although my squid head was channeling big Bishop hat vibes. So mostly I referred to myself and Her Holiness Bishop Squid. We celebrated with our good friend Bryson and his family. Although Trick or Treating was a little weird this year, fewer kiddos out and about, candy placed on tables for the picking. We were really just glad the kids got to Trick or Treat at all.

Brother hugs!

Off to our friend Bryson’s house for some backyard preTrick or Treating fun.

Mmmmm1 Marshmallows.

Definitely roasted.

Bryson’s marshmallow was enflamed.

My little artist.

Time to get the costumes on.

Keane wanted a picture with Bryson’s lawn pumpkin.

Ready to get some candy.

Time to knock on the doors and get the candy.

In the name of social distancing, most houses set up tables with candy.
