Five pictures worth a million words. Mum's reaction is priceless.

Best of the sequence, for sure, although all together they make a nice story.

Great series - and I think I'm as relieved as Mum and, probably, the kid.

I don't think this is early for week 5 - to get 52 in, we have to do one every 7 days starting 1 Jan even though the challenge didn't get rolling until a week into January. So I figure Jan 1-7, 8-14, 15-21, 22-28, and now Jan 29-Feb 4; we're smack in the middle of week 5 and I just posted one, too LOL

I'm going to be laughing about this sequence all day. I love the shot where all you see is feet, the board, and mom's face.

That is awesome. Love her expression in each frame. Tells the story of panic until hilarity. Wonderful.

Great sequence. Mum looks like she nearly had a fit until it all ended well. You can see her enormous relief.

Great sequence with marvelous expressions on that mother's face. Brilliant! And luckily a happy ending too.

Well when the shot is this much fun it's excusable to put it in early (smiles) I do love the mother's expression and the little person looks like he is on a clothes washer getting a good tumbling. The 3rd and 4th shot really give insight into the poor mom's concern - "it it time to scream for help yet"? haha - thanks so much for this wonderful glimpse into what is probably a common happening on beaches everywhere that we miss - good for you for catching the whole sequence.
