Best Wavesailing in Months at Rmp 38, Avon!

Wow, we scored yesterday with some excellent wave sailing conditions at Rmp 38 just south of Avon!  Warm water, chest/head+ outside lined up wrap surf, sunny skies, and winds averaging 25+ mph set up for one of the best days so far this year!  Only a few of us caught it, and was a great call for myself as a planned afternoon off work to trek down to Avon for the score!  Riding the 4.5m Maui Sails Mutant and 75ltr Quatro Quad LS provided rock star performance in the surf zone!  I am new to the Mutant, but found its handling superb with effortless control, excellent low end, and an extremely balanced feel while sailing.  Combined with the 75 Quad LS, it simply excelled in the surf zone!  FUN time!

Keith, Andy, and I were the local crew on hand, while Bertrice and Ace visiting the summer “secret season” were out as well enjoying the excellent conditions.  Ken  and the kite crew (Chris and Brian), also came down from upwind to end at Rmp 38.

All in all, an excellent, memorable session of wavesailing fun!  Now, we need a steady two weeks of similar conditions to lead up to the AWT Hatteras Wave Jam coming in Sept!

If anything, I need the practice!?!

Not sure if there are any photos out there from the sesh yesterday.  We were all sailing, and I do not think anyone was shooting.  However, if something surfaces, will update!

Ah, and if you were ever wondering about the 4th of July (or this year, 5th), see this unique perspective of the fireworks display in Nags Head at the Fishing Pier!  I remember seeing the drones flying during the show and thinking there would be some killer footage there!  These guys captured it!

Watch Me Grow: 12 Months

Clothing: 18 – 24 Months
Diapers: Size 5
Updates: He can stand from sitting on his own unassisted by pulling up on any furniture.  He took his 1st step last week.  We’ve made the switch to whole milk with no issues and he is eating all table foods like a champ.  He only gets one bottle a day at bedtime, otherwise he uses the sippy cups so we will transition away from the bottle in the coming weeks.  His year appointment is in 2 weeks so I’m anxious to find out his height and weight!  He continues to be a great little guy.

Clothing: 18 Months

Diapers: Size 4
Updates: He started crawling normally but only on the carpet.  On the tile he’ll resort back to army crawling.  He’s saying a few more words but his favorite is still “Daddy.”  He likes to scream to get your attention and I can’t wait until this phase is over.  He’s been eating more table foods but still prefers the purees.  One table food we did try that I was shocked that he ate was meatloaf?!?!  He’s making no attempts at walking although he will occasionally stand unassisted for a brief second.  He gets jealous if I’m holding Addison and will crawl up to my lap and try to push her off.  Addison and Enzo have also started having power struggles over toys…and the fun begins :-)

Updates: He started blowing raspberries, sits unassisted, started sleeping on his stomach at night, claps, holds his arms up when you say “So Big,” and waves bye.  He has said “Mama and Dada” a few times.  We moved him out of his infant car seat and into the convertible car seat.  He loves the pool.  

We started sleep training a few weeks ago.  After 3 long nights he finally started sleeping through the night.  Once we moved into the house we had another 3 rough nights but thankfully he is back to sleeping through the night the last 2 nights.  Crossing my fingers that he continues STTN.
