Emily Paddleboards & Ivy Swims!

It was a big day in the Hollister house.  Lots of firsts!  I went paddleboarding for the first time.  (Yes!  I checked off #21 off my list of 30 things to do before I’m 30).  Also, more importantly, Ivy went swimming!!  It was probably the most proud I’ve ever been in my life.  She handled it like a boss.

So.. off I go on the paddleboard!! It was a blast and so great to be out on the water! It’s a little awkward at first but once you get the hang of the strokes it is smooth sailing.  I knew my kayaking days at Camp Wyonegonic would come in handy one day!

Ivy was very curious!

Paddle 1

We paddled out to Monamoy beach and thought we would give Ivy a chance to swim.  Come on Ivy!!
