Swimming Lessons!!

This month, Charley boldly followed in the footsteps of her Dad and Aunt, and set out to become a swimmer. She is the next step in our swimming dynasty.

Here she is, in the smallest rashguard ever made, ready to take on the shallow end at the Coronado Community Center.

The back float is not quite second-nature yet, needs a little work.

She braved the depths like a girl twice her age, and Paige and I had a blast going to the pool with her every day. Next week, she takes to the open ocean. Stay tuned!

Charley's First Summer

Charley has been so thoroughly enjoying the So Cal summer that she has been hard for her paparazzi to keep up with. (Impressive, considering she is carried everywhere by the same paparazzi.)

Here she is touring lovely Newport Harbor with her Aunt Katie on her Grandpa's boat on the 4th of July.
She loves boats but this is still her all-time favorite mode of transport.

The lady prefers her sweet potatoes homemade, and would wear them no other way.
Mama's sensible little shopper.

"Sweet Potatoes are my favorite! No, Butternut Squash! Wait, Green Beans. I'll just try them all on."
Good thing for that bib. There was almost a mess.
