Some great memories in this thread.

Well, we traded out an I/O and got a new MC this year so that set the tone for the whole summer, including learning how to wakesurf.

But the highlight was renting a large house on the lake and having extended family stay there. Lots of sun, fun, laughs, drinks, and experiences. And oh yeah, I fell in the lake with my 2 day old Samsung S4 in my pocket and it dried out fine, no problem!

Ok .... I bite ... great season ... my wife and 2 boys were awesome all year .... my buddy Hot4Teacher and his family were awesome ... so all Summer we had a PS 214 or X2 to choose from ... so we surfed, skied, swam, and then did more of it ...

My favorite memory? when Mattscraft, WillyT, came over to our Norris house and we shared Rum and Coke?

Surfing a sweet X-25 or seeing my little guy kneeboard it?

Buckeye Bash IV?

Salt Fork with DoubleD, JKSki, MGBOYD? ZSquare?

or my last ski run of the year? Hot4Teacher and my wife skipped work for a few hours and hit the course ..... great times and great memories .... but I did not ski near enough this year ....

When my 10 y/o slalomed, tried to barefoot and jumped wake to wake on a wakeboard, all for the first time. He was eager to try them all right before we sold the PS190.

Getting my 4 year behind the boat again. I scared her last year trying to get her up in trainers between my feet (like my dad did to me what I was 2). I think there was too much dragging and spray with the difference between 30 lbs and 290 lbs this year I took a softer approach and after 2 1/2 months of gently suggestiong, I had her behind the boat on a ski tube. I swore we would not buy a tube until the kids learned to ski, but this was a happy compromise. She wants to go constantly now! I can't wait till spring when she gets to go first like I did when the water was cold

Had a great year. Injury free (for the most part), boat ran great no down time at all, got in 34 ski days over the summer and my Dad drove me for the second part of the season after my driver got busy. I even increased my P.B. by 1 1/2 buoys to 3 @ 38 off. Wahoo!

A friend of mine had two kids that would not for love, money or threats of a whupping could get them onto anything last year. This year his 6 year old of his learned to wakeboard, ski and surf in ONE DAY! Once they are ready they are ready. Push to hard before that point and it just will not work. His 8 year old boy is now whining that his sister is whipping his butt and he is out in the cold water trying to catch up. He is up on skis.

Most memorable was a 1200 mile RV road trip we did this summer. We hit up 4 different bodies of water. Just the wife & I for the 1st half of the week, then met up with family and friends the 2nd half of the week. Great trip.

Lake Berryessa
Orwood Resort (Sacramento Delta)
Lake Tahoe
Topaz Lake

Only pic I have... we were setting up camp at the Delta.

Soo much fun this summer.. Too many to pick just one!

Getting all our good friends together on the 4th.

Hanging out with the dogs camping on the beach almost every weekend


Labor day with the crew


Teaching our buddy Rod to surf and then getting his son on the board with him, I know he still has the rope. We don't have any sacs yet..


Making a ton of fun summer memories, sad summer is over but ready for snowmobile season

Remember that time we went fishing... said no one ever!!!
