Sharing Your Passion

What are you passionate about? Do you share your passion with others?

This is a great gift!

This weekend my family was invited to go boating and to hang out on the water at Discovery Bay with our good friends.

Being on the water is my favorite thing to do. Sharing it with my family and friends makes me giddy, content, joyous, relaxed and thankful.

This weekend didn’t disappoint.

I loved seeing my kids try new things and learn new skills. I was thankful to Rob and Marcia for sharing their boat with us and teaching my kids how to knee board and to try wake boarding.

I love that Rob shared his jet ski with Jeff and that all of us got to go for a ride with him and share the thrill of speeding on the water and fear of falling while jumping the wakes of boats nearby.

I was so happy when they offered for me to get in the water and to ski again. This used to be my biggest passion before having a family and I popped right up and could still do it. I was smiling from ear to ear. Absolutely 100% so happy!

We brought the paddle boards out too and enjoyed every minute together in the sunshine.

Life is good, especially when doing what you love with those you love.

Love this life!

Discovery Bay

As soon as I get near water, I relax and feel happy.

Put me on top of one of my boards and I’m giddy.

Autumn Day on the Delta

My favorite time of the year is summer time, but I think autumn might be a close second. Today we drove up to the Delta to spend the day with our friends. I loved the drive and experiencing the bright fall light and colors.

I love the open fields, old barns, and cows in the fields.

My favorite place to be is anywhere on the water with my family and friends. Today Rob took us out for a ride in his boat. I had my permagrin again and couldn’t stop smiling. Feeling the water splashing on me and the sun warming my skin is the best feeling. Thank you Rob for taking my kids and I for a spin!! We loved it.

Thank you Pat and Marcia for preparing a nice lunch for us. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and relaxing, chatting and enjoying your company.

The kids loved jumping off Chuck’s boat and into the water. I had just as much fun photographing them. It was a perfect day!

Thank you Pat and Chuck for inviting us over. We had a wonderful day with you.

The drive home was just as beautiful as the drive there. We had a very busy yet fulfilling and fun weekend! We just need another weekend to rest now!! :-). Hope y’all had a great weekend too!
