Well, since this arrived in the mail from Amazon on Wednesday (courtesy of a Christmas gift card from Mary Beth...thank you!!!), I've been itching to test it out. The idea of staying warm and boarding? Oh, yes please!!
So, upon seeing some blue sky through our living room skylights, I threw out the idea of spontaneously taking the boat out, and the family "bit". We were hoping to get Solomon to join Brayden as Kenady was available to come for Mikayla, but it didn't work out. Oh well, that means it could be an even swifter trip with one less person wanting to be out on the board.
As it was, it was just me that wanted to wakeboard. I'm not so sure if the video that Brayden took on John's phone will actually load up/play on this post, but if it does, you'll see a very happy girl living it up on the first run of the season. The water was quite glassy (at least big chunks of it were) and it felt AMAZING to be gliding across it again. I'm feeling my efforts today being sore all over, but it's a good sore with no headaches attached. I can't even tell you how huge that is to me. It's been a stretch of several days in that pain in my neck has been non-existent. Lately, that is rare. To be able to wakeboard (and even take a pretty good face plant after trying to jump a bit on the wake) and not "pay for it" gives me such hope.
The rest of the time on the lake was spent doing "twisties" on the boat (whipping it around really fast), and pulling these three on the tube. I think we did a decent job keeping it lively and fun, but safe with no one spilling out.
There were a ton of geese swimming along as we returned to the dock. Ahhhhhh....
After a stop off at DQ, we came home just in time to meet up with the Schillings and head to the theater to watch this. Such an entertaining movie....two thumbs up!
The busy day ended with Michael Chase joining us to watch the first UO Super Regional Game against Kent State. The Ducks did NOT play to win and despite coming close to regaining the lead, they failed to ever make up for all of the errors. Hopefully, the second game will return us to the Ducks that deserve to make it to the Collegiate World Series....
What a busy, but very enjoyable, day!
