Sporty Stella: Paddle Boarding Pro

Screen shot 2014-08-21 at 12.26.53 PM

This summer our family has been having the best staycation out in Malibu. The kids love splashing around in the water and it’s been super relaxing and fun to live by the beach for a couple months.

Dean loves to paddleboard, and a few weeks ago Miss Stella got in on the action with him! And let’s just say, she is a natural!

    I like that you are and still a family! Sometimes we all need the SHI* to make us stronger and to grow. Without the STUFF that smells we will not have a beautiful garden! Just remember that we are the legacy that will define our kids when they have grown to adults. I have 2 adult children and I can honestly say that by that actions of both my husband and I have set the tone and character of my children today. My oldest is a loving and devoted husband and father. My youngest is a college grad destined for good things in his life. Thank you for your story cause it will help someone else to know that we are never alone in our struggles in life.
