Chasing Waves

I take tons of pictures of my kids. More than 100,000 images are on the hard drive. Most of them are not frame-worthy. Many have blurred subjects and terrible lighting.  But once in a while, I get lucky and capture an image that takes my breath away. Like this one.

Waterskiing Mama

I may be pushin’ 40, but I can still do this!

Waterskiing Mama p

And oh, how I loved it! Even if I had to wear a wetsuit because Lake Tahoe water is too cold for this Lake Powell skiier.

It was our last day at Lake Tahoe before driving home and I had the itch to waterski. I knew it was my last chance until next summer and I couldn’t let it slip away. I wanted my kids to see their Mama doing something she loves doing. Something adventurous and brave. I wanted my girls to see that. And I’m so glad I didn’t let another excuse keep me from that moment. It’s too cold. It’s too choppy. I’ll try tomorrow.

My kids saw their Mama doing something she loves doing. Something adventurous and brave.
