Surfing at Newman Lake, WA.

Hello again!

Today I thought I'd share some family photos with everyone! We have been having a lot of fun this summer and one new thing we learned to do was surf! Not on the ocean waves, but behind a boat!

July 24 & 25, 2010

This first picture is my oldest son Josh, almost 19 years old!

Here is my hubby Kevin, 30 years old, getting ready to go!

You can see in this next picture how close to the boat you are when you 'surf'. The goal is to let go of the rope, and ride the wake as if you are on an ocean wave! Cool, huh?

It's not as easy as it looks at first!
But once you get comfortable and let go of that rope, it is smooth sailing!
The boat only goes about 18 mph., but it feels a little faster than that!
Down goes Kevin!!

Josh caught on like a natural! He was smiling ear to ear the entire time!
Look mom, no rope!!

Even after he wiped out...many times!

We had so much fun! We swam, surfed and wakeboarded all day, until it was too dark to see!

This last picture of Josh was taken as the sun was going down. Doesn't the water look beautiful?

We stayed the night at our friend, Shane's lake cabin, sat by a bon fire all night, and in the morning he made us breakfast and took us out surfing again! He is an awesome guy!!
I can't wait to go again!

I hope everyone is having as much fun as possible this summer!!
Enjoy every minute!!
