There are a million things to write and hundreds of photos to post from our annual trip to Lake Topaz. But this year was all about trying new water sports.
Biscuit learned to get outside the wake on her double skis (harder than you'd think) (spoken by a person who has gotten OUT of the wake on a ski but never back IN).
Then she took up wakeboarding after exactly one try.
She gets up every time but the falls are sometimes pretty awesome (this one while trying to get out of the wake: see above.)
She also tried darn hard at single skiing but didn't quite get there.
Meanwhile my father-in-law (re)took up wakeboarding. Mostly because he found the long lost wakeboard in an unexpected location and brought it to the lake. He was having fun.
And I tried it too because I never have gotten up on a wakeboard. Now I have but I can't say I've exactly wakeboarded. This is the only photo in existence (short ride).
and this is cool. Goes to show how fast you pop up on a wake board when you weigh 80 pounds or so.
Meanwhile, Oscar was kickin' it on the boat lookin' cute.
But on the last day he tried riding on the tube. And loved it.
I did not love it as much as my children.
And, finally, cousins.
What a great time.
