Finally… Some Almost Warm Weather

Finally had a chance to bust out the boat last weekend on Saturday morning and have a good time on the water. I forced everyone to have a early wake up, even though it is a late start for skiing, still early as we all adjust to a summer morning skiing schedule. I called for people to be at the lake at 830am. As I pulled in just a couple minutes late, I saw Sandy and John waiting. We launched the boat as Teri called to say that Rob and her were “almost” there. About 15 minutes after we got the boat in the water, they arrived, through no fault of Rob’s, or so he claims. Next time, I plan to just tell Teri 30 minutes earlier than the rest of us. They did bring some trail mix for everyone to snack on though.

Back to the skiing… We didn’t freeze, calm water and lots-o-sunshine. John, Teri and I did some footing, Sandy did a little slaloming, Rob got dragged around on the boom (much to our entertainment), and then we busted out my new surfboard. I won’t go into details about the day, I’ll just let the pictures do the talking… We took lots of them, and here the best of the pictures…


John threw some tumbles…


and one foots…


and did we mention he likes to test out his barefoot shorts…


I just did some footing… here I am in front
of the hospital I’m spending a lot of time in now…
(Work reasons, not health reasons)


Teri demonstrated a tumble turn on the boom


John wanted to have some on the boom too


Sandy busted out her slalom ski to rehab her knee…
her she throws up a wall behind the spray from the boat


A better picture…


Here I’m making sure the surfboard works


Teri on the board from up high…


and down low…


That wave looks huge!


John actually looses the rope now and then…


No rope…


But sometimes needs it back


Rob learned how to surf…


Here’s he on top of the water…


Here he’s about to go upside down…


It wasn’t that warm out though…
Sweatshirts made the day very nice
Sandy’s catching some rays here


And here’s the backdrop for our skiing, the state capital

Back to my earlier comment about dragging Rob around on the boom… he tried he hand (or feet) at barefooting. Now he’s not a small person and tested out the boom. He threw up some big splashes with some of his tumble up attempts, even dosing the camera once. We decided to catch them on video. I need to do a little editing and set the videos to music for maximum entertainment value. Be sure to check back.
