Woo Hoo. .WHAT a Ride!

Wow. .
We made it home tonight. .
We've gotten nearly everything put back in it's rightful places here. .
And. .
because I am still jacked up on the memories of a week in the dream life. .
and the 32 oz cup of Mountain Dew I had for LUNCH. .
I've looked through all 250-some photos that hadn't already been deleted off of my camera!! 
And decided to show off the photo skills of my kids. .
and the apparently awful facial expressions that I have a habit of displaying while playing! 
Just for fun!!
We spent a lot of time on the water. .and in the water. .
cooling off. . 
and perfecting our tricks. .
or a total lack OF them! 
My guys are ALL better than I am. .
but I like to try once in a while too!! 
Unfortunately. .I didn't realize how pathetic I really look on the water~~ HA
I don't like pain. .
and I don't like to get my face wet. .
It ruins both my makeup and my hair. .
and makes my contact lenses float on my eyeballs in a sickening kind of way.
But occasionally I get a little tricky. .
and try a trick or two. .
which usually end up with the above facial expressions. .
. .that occur right before a face plant. .
or a triple sideways flip across the surface of the water. .
imagine a skipped rock. .except bigger. .
and not quite as graceful.
We are refreshed. . 
And like it or not. .
back to the real world in a few more hours!!
I hope to catch up on your lives soon. .
and bring you some better coverage of our trip. .
so that you can effectively block THESE photos out of your memory. .
but thanks to my children. .
 I NEVER will!!


  1. Hi Melanie,
    That went quickly! It look's as though a great time was had by all, and I bet the waterskiing was a cool relief from all the hot weather you guys are getting at the mo. What's a Mountain Dew?

  2. Oh, you crazy girl-you look like you're having so much fun! What a great way to spend a TOO hot summer!

  3. Look at you!! Looks like a blast!! Glad you had a great vacation! =) Was happy to see your little miss boppin up the sidewalk today...rocking some sparkly brown eyeshadow! ;) Sure missed her!!

  4. Wow! I'm impressed! You go girl. I was never any good at water skiing. I guess I didn't do it often enough. The photos are excellent! Glad you had a good time!

  5. Look at you all sporty on the water. My WH and I were just talking the other day about all the goofy expressions of athletes captured in photos in the newspaper. See, you're an athlete. You've got the expression thing down. Glad you had fun. Nice to hear from you again!

  6. Ok, you have me laughing! These are great shots! Of course you are not going to be looking cool and confident when you're skipping across the water at 45 mph! hahahaha! You are so funny! But I know what you mean! Anyhow, I think you look great! And look at you...skinny minny! I am very impressed you can water ski! I have never even tried....cause I would be seriously afraid of the face plant and skipping across the water! LOL! At least you have the guts to do it...that's awesome!

  7. Oh stop! You look great. I haven't water skied since high school. You did great!

  8. Yay for you putting pics of yourself on your blog! And way to go to the guys for taking pics of you!!
