I’m still trying to catch up on our summer trips and I can’t believe it’s October already. Where has the time gone! This week was busy, filled with Parent Teacher Conferences for me and tests for Trent but luckily with some days off, I was able to catch up on lots of things. Including this little space here.
Newport Beach has become sort of a family tradition for Trent’s family. We’ve been coming here the past 4 years and every time has been a complete blast. It’s fun to have a vacation spot that feels like home after a while and we know so many of the good places to explore. This year was no different. We spent time relaxing on the beach, exploring different places and enjoying each others company. It was so much fun!
We got some good family pictures this trip which is always a plus! I’m still figuring out this whole photography thing and the Wards were all so patient and kind. The beach is definitely a good spot for family pics. Trent probably didn’t know he’d be stuck taking so many photos when he first married me but he is always an excellent sport! I’m the luckiest!
This year, Trent took spear fishing to a whole new level. Last year he tried it out and absolutely fell in love with it and this year he came prepared. He had his dive portable lungs, a spear and all his gear ready to go. He caught a lot of fish and it was fun to watch him do something he loves. He tried to take me with him once but I was a little too nervous, aka I had a complete panic attack out in the waves. Whoops. The ocean freaks me out sometimes. Maybe I’ll be better next year, maybe.
We also gave surfing a try this year! Boy was it hard! We’re used to wakesurfing behind a boat, in fresh water and a lot smaller waves. I got tumbled multiple times but Trent did a really good job! I was super impressed. It’s fun to try something new, even if you fail over and over, haha. Props to all those amazing surfers out there. I gained a whole new appreciation for you. Surfing is tough!
Sometimes your pictures don’t quite go as planned when this…

Haha, I sure love this husband of mine. It was such a wonderful trip and I completely understand why people love Newport Beach. It is truly a magical place. What a wonderful summer it was.
