As many of you know, and as Brandon really knows, Jodie and the kids have come out to California for a visit. We have had a crazy fun time, all of which will be blogged about, but man, there is a lot to cover, so we will start right here, at the beach.
Jodie, Elle and Bryn are waiting for the water to "get" them.
It's a little bit scary, so at the first sign of potential threat of wetness, Elle takes off to the safety of Grandma and drier ground.
Bryn could only wait a little longer before she fled.
Leaving Jodie all alone, daring the waves to reach her feet.
They never did.
Jodie's will was stronger than the ocean.
Also, it just so happened on that day there was some sort of surfing competition to add to the general excitement.
As the girls were running around, Bryn took a spill (as usual) and we ended up taking off her pants.
From then on, she was able to run around in the water without the fear of getting her pants wet. Elle was smart and had worn a dress to the beach, so she could just hike that up and out of the way as she played.
Also, this is Wilma. The point of this picture is for you to see her eyes. We aren't quite sure what color they are, it seems to change all the time. Are they gray, blue, or green? What ever they are, we love them.
