Okay so Autumn covered most of the pictures for the week end so I won't try to put the same ones so what I am going to do is share some thoughts.

So here is the story.....I have had so many good years skiing and now I can't do it so it is really hard to watch everyone doing what I love so much..I really miss the rush of a good ski on nice glassy water....but oh well memories will have to here is what I do now I have my nifty wave runner not quite the same rush but lots of fun.

So what does one do when not on the toys .....we swim and stay cool!
Or you might just jump on the toy and go see what the young folks are doing......
Yah it's Melissa learning to wake board go Melissa!
And then there is Kenzie doing a good job.....and yes it is fun to ride along and and scare them and have fun with the wake......
Here is the parting shot.....Autumn took this one I just love it....nothing finer than fishing with Grandpa....Hunter was really excited to catch this is what it is all about's about family being together and having fun and making memories....doesn't get better than that. Love you guys it was a great weekend!
