my daughter doing a back roll. Her rolls look pretty different cause she almost does a reverse raley. My other daughter does more traditional looking rolls...

This is how we "manage" a 17 month old while skiing. He settles down when strapped in and enjoys watching the action. I added some basic straps the observer portable seat, works like a charm.

He loves the water.

I bet some will disagree but that boat / car seat set up that you rigged up is slick. I had often thought about tying my son down with the ropes but wife siad she'd kill me if I did. That just holds him perfect.

Well, we live on a private lake and I am out of shape and can only ski for about 5 minutes anyway. So, he is only tied up for that time. I'm surprised that he doesn't mind and babbles away the whole time.

We always had to have friends come out with us to hold the kids so I could ski. It's nice now that they are old enough (barely) at 5 and 6 to be good spotters, so we can go out just the 4 of us if we want. I can't wait until I have to fight with them for time on the rope!! They're starting to learn to ski and wakeboard but we're not quite there yet.

On a side note, when mine were that 17mo age and a little younger we found it a lot less stressful if we left the rear seat at home. They were penned in a little better that way as they roamed around (when stopped of course). With the seat in they were up on the transom way too easily.

My wife has been working me over big time because she wants kids. I actually prefer neices and nephews, but I'm starting to cave. I saw a documentary today called 'the other f word' that's about rock stars becoming middle aged parents and family men. Flea from the chili peppers features prominently in it. I would think any parent would dig the movie, so if you all get a chance, check it out.

I don't know if I would be considered a "middle aged" parent or not. Had my first (and only) child at 54. It's not that bad of a deal really. Much more suited at this age than when I was, say, 30 or so.

Got the makings of our own little family ski show starting here.......boys are getting more comfortable skiing, which I really like. Once they started being able to cross the wake, it gave them some reason to ski more (and tube less!!)

Oh, also, GO TIGERS!!

My wife got a pic of our 10 yr. old on her first time up on the slalom. She looks pretty happy about it.
