Boogey Boarding

Well we went to the beach today! We had an absolute blast! Kev had taken the day off so we hung out with our friends the Watermans. Us moms decided we could also boogeyboard and we did! At one point Julie and I got caught in a rip tide and could not get ourselves out, our hubbies were on the beach taking pics and wondered why on earth we were not catching the waves - well we could not!!! We both knew to swim parallell but when in the situation you don't do it! So both husbands and the life guard came to our rescue! The life guard was very busy as it kept happening to people! Towards the end of the day the waves were really beginning to get big so Kev and I went out and this was a first, we had never boarded before! Anyway a good day was had by all! Check out the other pics!

Sandcrabs

Whilst Becca was getting the boogey boarding right, Miss Kaela was hunting for sandcrabs and loading them up in her bucket! After we had finished at the beach we came home and had a swim in the pool! Today has been really hot and we are expecting another hot day tomorrow but will be hanging at the pool!

Everybody's surfing, surfing USA

We had a great day at the beach! It was nice and warm and not to hot! Becca decided to try and boogey board for the first time and did a great job, she seems to be a natural! This beach is called Salt Creek and is 3 miles down the road! Kaela had a blast running from the waves! We will certainly be going again in the next few weeks before school starts again!

Soul2Soul

Well this was a sister date! Shaz and I got to hang out and go to the concert of Tim Mcgraw and Faith Hill. We had a really good time and enjoyed the performances. The Honda Centre is huge and this is where the ice hockey gets played, so the stage is on the ice (which is covered for this) They are a great couple and certainly the place was rocking! We look forward to doing some more of these! The sound, lighting and stage set ups were brilliant!

Well as you can see Thandi is certainly fitting in! This is her playing with her friend Tessa, then with Becca and then of course playing checkers!

SVBS 2007

Well this was the first year that the girls attended Summer Vacation Bible School! They had an absolute blast and were kept busy from 9am - 1pm everyday! The theme was "To Eternity and Beyond" so you guessed was based on Toy Story! As you can see the stage was set up like the little boys bedroom! The people in green on stage are a family who lead praise and worship for kids and they were fantastic, great songs, lyrics and actions! The last day the kids all got up on stage and performed their group song! There were 800 children divided into 4 groups, the Comets, the stars, lightening and thunder! These children also raised $11 000,00 to send to Peru to help the missionaries with the children they are helping! The kids days involved, crafts, praise and worship, group time and water sports. Well will the girls go next year? Definitely! The last 2 pics are of the girls in their group!

SVBS 2007

Well this was a week for the girls to remember! They had an absolute blast! The theme was "To Eternity and Beyond" and was based upon Toy Story! As you can see the stage was set up like the little boys bedroom! There morning was quite long from 9 - 1pm but it flew by because they were really kept busy! They had crafts, praise and worship, water sport and group session! The second pic is the family who led praise and worship! They go around doing that at many churches all over and are brilliant! It was an exhausting week but will the kids return - OH YEAH!

Playful Pup


Well as you can see our pup is growing in leaps and bounds! Thandi is now 7 months old! She is doing really well and loves playing with her ball! She would fetch it all day if she could! We are hoping to start her in agility classes in September which will be a load of fun! She is going running with Kevin in the mornings and is very fit and fast!

Summer

Well we are certianly enjoying summer! After thinking that it would never come!!! We are spending many days at pools with friends and just hanging out! The girls have also got a lot more confidence in the water which is good. They have a month left of holidays beofre returning to school! We have a pool at our complex but the other day we got locked in as you need a key to get in and out so had to climb out over the wall with a lot of difficulty! The girls are making some great friends.

Orange County Fair


Well this was our first time to the Orange County Fair! We went with our good friends, Puja nad Deep adn there 2 daughters! The girls were really enthusiasitc to do some roller coasters first, so off we went! Kevin and I are both not fond of these things so Puja volunteered to go with! Well Kaela came off whiter than a sheet vowing to NEVER go on one ever again! Becca on the other hand is an adrenalin junkie and just wanted fast stuff all the time! SO Becca and Trishna did the fast things whilst we found some rides for Kaela to do! We had a great day as we strolled around, had a yummy lunch and then of course could not pass the animal pen where there were a host of little baby animals such as camels, donkeys, goats,pigs, etc! We certainly had our day jammed as we also had my sisters birthday dinner to go and prepare, but we had a great day at the fair, now Becca is begging for Disneyland and more wild rides!!
