While in California we took family pictures at the beach. We chose Ventura because Blaine spent most of his teenage years surfing at this beach and I have lots of memories here, as well. We did our best to capture our love of the beach and our family even though it was a little windy and the kids thought we were torturing them by not allowing them to just go play. After pictures, we changed into our bathing suits and had a great beach day. The sun even came out after our pictures!
