Water Sports

We were invited to wakeboard at Hawk Springs one fine July day.
Kebm had his boat there, and he taught us how to ride the wake of the boat.
Alissa did a pretty good job of staying on the board, but I was Tragic Comedy personified.

Great sense of balance, she...

Our turn yet?

Eli & Taylor preferred the big yellow tube, and as long as
Kebm was driving the boat, everything went smoothly.

The one time I tried piloting the speedboat, I nearly killed Kebm.
I was summarily relieved of my command by the entire crew, and the
camera was thrust into my hand. One way to keep everyone alive and well!

A leisurely start...

The following morning, Alissa, myself, and the boys headed south to Texas to collect
Kara & Jenna from Moose's and Papa's house in Crosby. We never did reveal
that we were enjoying a day of leisure at Hawk Springs before the long drive to Texas.
