When I Grow Up

Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while already know that I used to dream of being the next Mary Lou Retton. But, I bet you didn’t know that I also dreamed of being the next Kristi Overton!

That’s right… I had dreams of being a professional and competitive water skier. I’ll let you in a little secret… I still hold on to that dream!
Reagan… she’s still in that decision-making stage. She too has dreams of a gymnastics career, as you well know. But she also is starting to show some interest in the water sports.

Will she be a surfer?
Will she be a stunt lady on the tube?
Or will she be a jet skier?
Only time will tell for sure!

I wanted to be Mary Lou retton too! My mom's name was Mary, and my dad's name was Lou. I took that as a sign, believe it or not!

Oh I see these pictures and I can't help but get excited! I'm going to Lake Powell bright and early tomorrow morning! Woot!

Oh we used to spend many the days on the lake with friends...

I was never great at skiing, but it was fun. The occasional wipe-out was bearable. Now that one wipe out that felt like I'd just received an enema? EWWWW! I'm sure you know what I'm talkin' about.

Anyway, my biggest thing is that I can't keep my legs straight. My crooked knees do me in!

Wow! That is truly amazing. She is such a brave girl :)

I think she will certainly excel in any of those. She looks like she's having a ball!

I tried water skiing once, as I only had that one opportunity. Let me say it wasn't pretty.....

However, you all looked like you were having an awesome time!!!!
