Kiteboarding Session

J is the one in the middle.

After our hopscotch session in the front yard, we joined J up at the beach with his buddies to watch them kiteboard.  It’s fun to watch them speed across the water with the kites.  I’m always afraid that they’re going to get to close to one another and their kite strings will cross and create a huge mess.  It hasn’t happened yet, thank goodness!

Wildman tried on J’s wetsuit before we left the house.  He looked so darn cute that I had to snap a quick picture.  He looks like a little person kiteboarder…

Geeg and her kids, VG and AL, met us up at the beach as well.  Wildman and VG are really good friends and play together so well.  I love watching them.  Geeg had just had her brows waxed.  Don’t they look great?  They remind me of how bad I’ve let mine become…

Once J’s kite was aloft, he gave the boys a few quick rides much to their delight…

When the guys hit the water Geeg and I sat back to watch the boys play in the sand and much on some snacks that I brought.  The kids had a great time as evidenced by their soggy, sandy clothes…

We stayed for probably an hour and a half watching J and his buds do crazy airs like this…

But I didn’t last too long on the beach.  The wind was so darn cold and I didn’t bring a jacket.  I herded the boys to the car, dropped Geeg and her kids off at their house across the street, then headed home to make dinner.  Thank goodness J and I drove separately!

It was one of those awesome spring evenings that make me so glad to live where we do!

      I’m glad I could share a relatively new sport with you. It’s really fun to watch. No, I’ve never tried it. I’m afraid I would die… I’d like to try surfing first…
