Ok, so for the past 9 years the Knox crew has had a boat. Knox always pushing to get me out there! I insisted that I was a better driver than a skier or boarder. Our dream of owning a MC finally came true 2 years ago. Knox and 2 of the kids board....the youngest just toobs...for now. So last summer was going to be the summer that I learned to wakeboard...ooooppps I found out I was pregnant and was out of sports for '07. Now, Knox is determined to get me up on a wakeboard or surf board! So this weekend while hanging with the hillbillies.....I got in the water! I reminded everyone that I have serious issues as I do believe there is an anchor in my @$$ that prevents me from actually standing on a floating device. I am determined this time...however....that I shall conquer this! So with cheers and atta girls being shouted from the boat by my hubby and kids....I get pulled right up.........over the board and do a face plant!! I am now determined that I can and I will do this!! I position myself and here we go again.......this time I am actually up on the board and riding....now it goes through my head.....WTH do I do now??? How do I stop this ride when I am done???? And then it hits me....the water that is....I figured out how to stop the ride!! A face plant usually works well....I would sugest a different stoping technique though:rolleyes:
Now, I am going to post a couple of pics....realizing that I am so not in shape to post these as I had a baby and have yet to lose the weight! But you see, I am so darn proud of myself....I really dont care. For years I never thought I could get up on that board and now I know I can. My kids and my hubby think I am cool...the best feeling in the world!:cool: Now, when this weathere clears, I will get Knox to take me back to the lake so that I can get up on that wakeboard that haunts me!!;)
Ahhh, forgot to mention that I also learned the fine art of backing that trailer down the ramp...perfect...one shot and picked up my beautiful boat and hauled her up the hill!!! ALL BY MYSELF!!! Great weekend all the way around!!

Thanks...I know all about sore muscles!! I carry the baby Knox around and that is nothin'! But after my fun on the surfboard and the adrenaline had died down.....I was lookin for some asprin!! My arms hurt so bad it hurts to lift the laundry out of the dryer. Ahhh, another great reason for Knox to learn to do some chores!! This way I can keep my strength for surfin':cool:8p:D
