Despite the fact that the kid shots are great I think the little voices asking when I was going to post the photos were looking for these. Just so it is recorded that the adults also played hard on this trip... here are the pictures. To start us off we have Haley. She was the first one in the water! She started us off well! Mitch jumped in next! My favorite move was the flip otherwise known as "the easy way to get the wakeboard off" Later in the afternoon when it go a bit choppier we rode tubes. It was no easy riding. These boys take it as a personal quest to dump everyone in the water! First up was Andrew and Mitch. Look how happy they are! They think this is going to be so fun!They were BLEEDING when they finished! So fun! Don't think I tipped the camera here. I think the boat was literally standing sideways in an effort to dump these guys! I can't believe Mitch hung on to this one! But not for long! Next up we have Mitch and Haley! She teased the driver by standing up and waving in the beginning. Soon thereafter she was clinging on with both hands! I love her face in this one. Next up is Dave and I although because I never taught Tricia the new fangled thing called zoom you don't really know it is us. She did get a nifty picture of our first wipeout. Holy crap! That water was cold. It literally took my breath away for a little while. I couldn't answer when Tricia kept asking me if I was ok. I couldn't get enough air! Next up were Dave and Brandon. I love how they tried so hard not get in each others personal space. After they got dumped several times Tricia jumped on with Brandon. She had a great method for never being dumped. It was this... when you think you are going in punch your husband off and hang on tighter! Not just once but every single time. Poor Brandon didn't know if his bruises were from landing in the water or Tricia kicking him! He seemed to recover enough to some skiing. With his hat on? Then B. Rad skied for a while. Then he texted for a while telling all his friends how awesome he looked. Then he wakeboarded for a while. Then he went and hid so I couldn't take a picture of him texting everyone to tell them how cool he was.... Dave even attempted wakeboarding although his shots didn't turn out as well because all his cool poses were under the water. See that brown thing? That is his head. Next year we are going for above water shots. Then Mitch got back in to show us all how it was done. This is the takeoff crouch. This is the sweet pose for the camera. This is the cool silhouette pose that happens when the sun is going down and you can no longer see who is behind the boat.
One important thing I should mention is that one morning both Dave and B. Rad took a ride around the lake. A mere 50 miles. On their bikes. Pedaling. It makes me tired just to type it. They are both amazing!
Thanks to Tricia and Brandon for hosting this fun weekend and for also providing the cabin and the boat! Thanks to Andrew for bringing up another boat and getting the 4 wheelers ready! Everyone really appreciated all you did and we had a GREAT time.
