Week 25 {365} Water+Sun=Fun

Can you guess what we did this weekend?

It involved water and a boat.

And if you guessed skiing... you are partially right.

Look carefully at this next photo...

Don't see anything? Yeah, that would be me skiing. And btw, the kids took most of the photos. Hubs was driving and I was a little busy. Most of the pics looked a bit like this one. (And I drank more of that nasty water than I pour in my face with my neti-pot. I'm pretty sure that can't be good.)

We never actually made it up on the skis, but it wasn't for lack of effort. Little Man, Pokey and I gave it a valiant go on some trainers and after about a dozen tries I managed to stay up for 30 seconds. It was fun, but now I know why there are not any fat skiers. Holy workouts!

The sun came out enough to give us plenty of pool days as well. We might just get our money's worth out of this pass after all.

It was a successful week at the pool minus the whistle scare. And if you follow and were wondering about the little girl... They don't make an announcement and we are left to make our own conclusions, but the kids knew her and heard she was ok. What a relief.

We are sure proud of Little Man's accomplishments.

And can only hope that we continue to have as much fun in the sun in the weeks to come.

How did you spend your week?

  3. I grew up down the street from a lake and still can't waterski. I gave up :) and just enjoyed riding around in the boat. Looks like you are having a great time with the kids so far this summer!

    Summer has been great so far for us, and looks like it's been great for you as well!

  6. I've only tried water skiing once. I'm really klutzy, but I love to dance, so I did pretty well and was able to ski okay. I remember being in horrible pain the next day though. Every muscle in my back ached the next day. Ugh!

  8. Looks like a lot of fun! I love anything to do with water and can swim like a fish but have never tried to water ski! There's somewhere down the road from me where you can learn so I may have to look into it :) I'm glad the little girl was ok!

  9. Ok, I just had fun seeing your pictures! I've never tried water skiing....I'm too chicken. The hotel we stayed at last week had a water slide and Tater loved going down it!

  10. Looks like a really fun day. Great photos. Love the collage. What software to you use to make them?

  11. You're just the prettiest, hands down. I didn't even blow dry my hair this morning (in my defense it's, like, 150% humidity today so really, what's the point...I tell myself).

    Can't say I've ever tried waterskiing - maybe I should put it on my list of to-do's? :-)

    Here's to more fun in the sun - and there's so much summertime left!

  13. So jealous. I miss being out on a boat.

  14. Looks like you had a lot of fun, despite drinking half the lake lol. Water-skiing is HARD! I've tried it a few times without success. Your kids are just adorable!

  15. Great photos Lish! Looks like you all had a blast. I'm jealous actually. The attack dog is still on the loose. Animal control has been out twice and have yet to catch the darn thing. By the way, I'm still wondering how in the world you manage to look drop dead gorgeous every second of the day. lol
    Have a fabulous, fun-filled week Lish.

  16. that is so much fun. you really should try wakeboarding or wake surfing. both are WAY easier than water skiing.

  22. Looks like you guys had a great time! Don't you just love summer? I love everything about it the sun and the pool! I learned to water ski at a young age but it's been years since I've been water skiing? I'm thinking that might be a funny site these days!! Have a great week!

  23. Honey, we are so much alike! I would be wearing the lipstick water skiing, too.

    You guys look like you're having a beautiful summer.

    And yayyy! for your little man. He is such a fish, now.

  24. Next time take me. I taught waterskiing at summer camp for 3 summers and I can get ANYONE up (on two skis) in 3 tries with a good boat driver.

    I haven't skied for years because when you are older (aka heavier) it IS work! hahaha.

    Looks like so much fun.

  25. Love all the pics! Too fun! Hoping to have some of that fun this weekend myself. Ready for the lake!

  27. Love the pics! I've never skied in my life, and at this point, I don't think it's gonna happen. Like you said, there are no fat skiers. ;)

  30. GOOD FOR YOU for getting out there on water skis!!! It looks like fun, face full of water and all. :)

  31. For your kids to go from being scared of the water to full on canonballs is amazing!

    I've never had the chance to water-ski as an adult. I would love to give it a chance one day.

  35. Fun, Fun, Fun! I was never any good at skiing, but I can rock the flag when someone else goes down :) Thanks for stopping by Sundays in my City!!

  36. I am so stinkin' jealous that you got to go skiing! I grew up skiing every summer, but haven't been for at least 10 years. I miss it so and my poor ski is just sitting in the corner of the garage looking so forlorn.
