Over the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday, we spent some time at the beach and I know kids grow up fast, but I never thought how much that could hit me in just a single day. I came to the realization that I no longer have little kids, I have little dudes, specifically, little “Surfer Dudes”.
When this transformation took place, I really don’t know. I do know that it was clear as I watched them paddle out on their little surf boards, get up and actually catch some waves. If that wasn’t enough, on our way back home, we bumped into a couple of the kid’s friends:
Mateo spies a buddy skateboarding, rolls the window down – “Hey Ryan- Stop by later?” and as we round the next corner, Cammy yells out:
“How was the surf?”
Lucas – “Awesome!”
Mateo ” Great waves today!”
Really?! These are 7 & 8 year olds! My little boys are not little any more… Here are a couple of surf shots. Aren’t they the cutest?!
