Final Beach Days
Vancouver finally received it's Fall warning with a few crazy thunderstorms and handful of rainy days. i figured summer had all but ended and that it was probably time to start putting away some of the summer wardrobe and start adding a few more Fall pieces to the drawers. not yet! summer still has a few more bursts of heat up its sleeve and it's been pouring sunshine all week!
chloe found her Ariel bathing suit and requested i pop a barrette in her hair
the water was so warm
she is less bothered by the seaweed these days
this has been the best summer. i learned to paddle board back in July and have had two opportunities since then to do it again! Rebecca & Dal brought their paddle board down and let everyone have a chance to sail around on this insanely gorgeous late summer evening.
this is going on the list of "things we need"
back to more light and and water splashing testing
love the texture
as usual, moses was off on his own building
it's almost been a year since i met the Pinedas and Baby Jordan who was only 4 months old at the time.
chloe took her turn on the paddle board
love this light
another solid winner
the other Coco: one of my absolute favourite girls in the entire world
chloe returned, and Dal offered to hold onto the cam while i took my turn with chloe. seriously, i never wanted to come back. you don't even need to go far out to feel completely isolated with nothing but water, mountains, and sky. the sunset was so pink and purple, the moon was out over the beachfront homes, the water was so calm, the air was so clean, the mountains were glowing, and my little girl was trailing her tiny fingers in the water below. it was heaven.
christine took her turn next
i think chloe was the only one prepared with a bathing suit. as i returned, all the kids had flung their damp clothes onto the rocks and ran waist high into the warm water. what a life.
god i hope the little boys tomorrow are brave enough to wade into the water like this!!!!
this is why i tell families to bring colourful towels
chilly chloe got in on the towel action. like i said, none of us were prepared!!!!
straight from Munchkin land, Little Haden
also one of my other favourite things to capture at the beach, wearing mom & dad's clothes
everything got really crazy purple and pink. i could not capture it, though i tried.
had to grab a selfie on this pretty pretty night
i love these guys
this very well may have been the best summer ever
