Mette -N- Joe Go Surfing




If you get bored looking at other parents "Baby Pictures" you might want to pass my post on by. Cuz dang if these aren't some of the coolest baby pictures of my oldest "baby"  You might remember Mette and Joe got married hours before the last tropical storm of the season hit South Carolina. So instead of doing the day after the wedding pictures the day after the wedding they did them the week after, when they returned from their honeymoon. :) I thought I just  share a few because they are sooooo amazing. Tracy Turpen is the Photographer and she truly is the most incredibly gifted artist!!!!.

These two kids are truly hard core water babies!!!! Remember this is November the air temp is in the low 70s and the water temp is the mid 70s. And this is the child that was born wearing a full set of polar fleece. She owns more polar fleece then some stores do :)



Both kids graduated from college with normal (what ever that is) college degrees. Both kids love the non traditional water sports so they are carving out careers that allow them to combine their addiction with bring home the bacon.  What they explained to their woefully out of touch mother is that Stand Up Paddle Surfing is a fast growing off shoot of board surfing and kayak paddling. What ever,  I think it looks like loads of fun and a darn site less painful then the old fashion surfing!! :)

Some times the water is smooth as glass


And some times there are some nice swells to ride to shore on.



Joe makes it look easy enough don't you think?? :)



Oh and trust me I'd be back peddling a lot harder then that if there was a chance I would meet that frigid water up close and personal!!!



Looks like a scene out of "Water World"



Trust me she is a most amazing woman but she really can't walk on water :)



Follow your dreams and live only in today......



Have a most audacious today or tomorrow depending on where in the world you are  p;)

I have never seen anything like this or heard of it... your daughter on water in her wedding gown too! Did she ever get wet or fall in? These pictures are just amazing... I would show them off too! What a sweet couple of newlyweds!
