My schedule can get pretty busy, especially during the summer; before I know it summer is over, and I have only made it to the lake a handful of times! This summer I have made a valid effort to go to the lake more often, because after all, it doesn't get much better than spending the day with family & friends, waterskiing, airchairing, rocking out to music on the lake, playing cards, etc! 

My family's new favorite toy is the airchair, and being that we are kind of competitive, we always try to get more air than everyone else {as you will see below, Nick dominates in the air category}.   Every time I strap onto the board, my dad and brother say, "Come on Holly, big air this time; just launch yourself" {let me tell you, it's a little scary to "launch" yourself  while strapped to a seat, with a 3-4ft pylon below you}

Dad, living the dream!
Kaylee joined us for fun at the lake this weekend!

BIG AIR {kind of}
hand to knees, hold, freeze, eyes open, look up

Nick: The Pro! 

I think I got as much air as my dad!?

James is getting the hang of it! 

Riding the foil! 

My mom airchairs as well, but she is really the Surf Queen, and loves to bust-a-move while surfing 

I haven't quite mastered surfing, but I was able to surf without the rope for quite a while this weekend! 

Lil James decided he wanted to surf with me...

...but we weren't successful! 
I have a couple more weekends to really master "launching" myself! I just might even be jumping the wake by the end of the summer {OK, not really, but one can dream, right!?}.

This is what summer is all about!!!


  1. agreed! our weekends look similar :) well, except we don't have the air chair!
    I love Vern's hat!!!

  2. Whoa that looks intense - and fun! :)

  3. That looks like so much fun! We have a ton of lakes around Spokane, yet I don't remember the last time I went to one.
