Dude, My Kids Are Like Totally Gnarly

(My apologies to any real surfers who read my blog. Yes, I know you don’t really talk that way!)

Camp Rodeo concluded on Saturday with a fun beach day celebration at LaJolla Shores Beach. Megan and Paul’s highlight was that they were able to experience riding a surfboard for the first time ever, thanks to the patient efforts of several InterVarsity members.

I regret that I only had my iPhone along to take pictures. There are just a few pictures of Megan because she never told me she was trying. By the time I arrived on the scene, her lesson was almost up. She went back a second time and I’m told that she was awesome. What I do know firsthand is that my kids are now convinced of their need for a surfboard. Nevermind that they barely know how to swim!

Padres Game

On Sunday afternoon I experienced my first Padres game.  Megan and Paul received two tickets each as part of their summer reading program reward from the College-Rolando library branch.  (I never got rewards like that when I was a kid!)

The game itself wasn’t crazy exciting (the Padres lost) but we enjoyed some quality family togetherness.  What’s not to love about hanging at Petco Park on a lazy Sunday afternoon?
