Boating

So today my family woke up at 5:30 am to hit the lake for some early morning skiing and wakeboarding!!! We get up so early because thats the only time you can find good water now that so many people in the world have boats :D its actually kind of funny because we usually leave the lake around 8 (since my dad has work and he is the only one who can back the trailer) and that is when the rest of the boats usually GET there! they all look at us like we're crazy as if to say " you're getting off already?" we are early birds i guess.. although we do wish we could stay longer some days which brings me to the point of my blog post. my parents have just decided that they should teach me how to back the trailer into the water so we can go without my dad :P Wow. last week on the 24th of july was my first experience backing the trailer down and it was hilarious to say the least haha my whole family got a kick out of it. And the worse part was that it was the 24th so a lot of boats were trying to get on the lake so there was a huge line watching me struggle and waiting so THEY could get on the lake! my family laughed pretty hard, looking back it was kinda funny but i was just stressed! (wes and family remember when my parents tried to teach me to drive the boat on the trailer and i pushed the gas too much and lifted the prop to fast which then caused a huge fountain spray of water to get everyone on the deck soaking wet? :P haha yeah. it was ALMOST as funny as that time) so anyways we decided to get a video of me backing it in this week. its not nearly as bad as last week. nearly. but its still pretty bad and i got a kick out of my family and josh's commentary throughout the whole video so tuh duh! my first video blog post. we'll see how it turns out.

*disclaimer*
Kristin was being the videographer, and lets just say she has no future as a professional... its a wee bit shaky. hang in there, its gonna be a bumpy ride.

(why do i never learn my lesson about procrastination?!) anyways, congratulations to those of you who have made it through the whole movie clip! i hope it brought as much amusement into your lives as the lives of my fam :D

Haha! Funny Ash! You did a pretty good job as far as I can tell, but I'm no expert. Tell Kristin she's as bad as me with a video camera!
