Wanna know the definition of a fun boat crew?!?!? It was Joe, myself, our kids, Brooke (Hoss' little sister), her husband, their 19 month old daughter and Anna (Brooke's best friend from high school). Not one of us had ever wake boarded, nor had any of us driven the boat for wake boarding. Someone suggested since we had all the stuff (the rope was still wrapped in the store zip ties) we might as well try. Every single person was like, heck yeah sounds like fun. Joe went first with me driving, he managed to get up on the third try and looked like a natural. Next Brooke who was awesome and got up on her first try, then my drowning butt got in there and just about died a half an hour later still didn't get up and my arms are still too sore to do laundry today. Everyone else got up and had fun which will make me even more determined next time we go to get up.
The next day the wind was so bad and the lake so choppy that we loaded everyone up on the boat and drove slowly to a quiet cove completely sheltered from the wind, we spent all day jumping in and out of the water and chasing frogs on the beach. It was awesome.
Anna and Austin, in about 20 seconds from when this picture was taken Austin fell asleep.
Tyler would be the next to fall asleep here.
